My best friend wanted Mirena, she went by herself, they didn’t give her any reason she couldn’t other than maybe feeling crampy afterward. It didn’t work out, they couldn’t get it in after two providers attempted they abandoned it. They told her sometimes it’s not possible if you havne’t had kids yet….if your uterus is really tiny. Just a heads up, I think for most, it works out fine.

@Pepperwoodsy:  Wow, thank you so much for sharing your experience!  This is really helpful, and it’s great to hear a story that doesn’t end in horrible pain. 😉  I’m so glad it went well for you!

@kyra.astell:  That’s interesting about the cysts.  My girlfriend had the IUD and developed a very large painful cyst.  They took the IUD out a few weeks ago and the pain is completely gone.  She now thinks the IUD caused the cyst.

@Pepperwoodsy:  Glad to hear yours went well!  I tried to have it done a few months ago, but the dr. could not get it in, I have no idea if she knew what she was doing or not though, my gut is that she did not since she didn’t try for long.  I went to another dr. for a consultation and he is going to see me next month for an ultrasound just to check out my body type and see if one really could fit in me before trying the procedure again.  He suggests the skyla for me though since it is smaller.  So I’m keeping my fingers crossed!

@Pepperwoodsy:  Congratulations on your insertion and positive experience!  The doctors & nurses at my clinic told me almost everyone at my clinic had an IUD too.  I would’ve appreciated some lidocaine on my cervix – my insertion was intensely painful (but totally worth it).  Enjoy! 😀

@mtbikelover:  my original thought was that the IUD caused the cyst, but from what I gather, most birth controls help prevent cysts due to the high hormones supressing the natural development of them, but since the IUD had a low level of hormones, I was no longer recieving that benefit. I have since moved to the nuva ring, which is still a lower hormone contraceptive, and haven’t really had any problems. Note: It was about a year ago that I removed the IUD and went back to the Nuvaring. My lower abdominal pain has subsided for the most part, but I’m moody again.

My appointment is this friday and I’m more excited than nervous! I’m excited to not have to take the pill anymore, and not have to worry so much about pregnancy. One thing I AM nervous for is the possibility of lots of pain for a few days… I really hope all goes smoothly

I had mine inserted on my lunch break. Went right back to work afterwards, and had no cramps ever (never had period cramps before though). I forgot to take Ibuprofen, but only had one painful cramp during insertion. The cramp itself lasted about 10sec. That was it! I have a high tolerance for pain and gave birth without medications, soo I may not be the norm. I kinda think it’s funny to hear about people taking the entire day off from work to “rest” afterwards, as if it’s major surgery.

For the most part I like it. It’s been 6 mos and my periods are mostly gone, but I spot CONSTANTLY…here and there…all month.

Also, has made me prone to a bacterial infection that’s being a bear to get rid of.

But, it’s the only birth control that I trust myself with. I was super bad about remembering to take the pill (even with the reminder app on my phone). I’ve used condoms and diaphragms, but those interupt the mood. This just seemed like a good option.
