Thanks for posting your experience.  I hope the cramping dies down soon!!  It’s nice to know it’s made by Bayer.  Mirena’s little sister as it were ๐Ÿ™‚

This was SO informative!  So glad to hear you had a safe, comfortable option.

My gyno essentially wouldn’t let me get the IUD (“we just don’t do that, you need to have kids first, it’s unsafe blah blah…”) so I’ve suffered on the Ring for 5 years. Off it in 2 month’s tho thank god!

Hey ladies,

Has anyone else made the decision to get the new Skyla IUD. I am getting it this afternoon and I am a bit nervous. Any insight would be helpful!

How much does stuff like this cost generally?

I love hearing about Skyla! I have a Mirena, and I haven’t had children, but I am glad that there is a smaller option so doctors don’t have an excuse to not insert an IUD into a nulliparous person.

very interesting – i’ve had the mirena for nearly the full five years so i’m looking to either have a new one reinserted, or maybe the skyla would be a good option – not sure if it’s available in europe tho. 

i haven’t had any children either – i loooove having an iud – i was discussing my options with me SO yesterday and the fact that i have literally not even thought about birth control in 5 years has been amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

I just got Skyla put in yesterday and I did not sleep at all last night. I have never had sleep issues. I am thinking about removing it today.

sorry I’m just being nosy…

@TogetherThroughLife:  Why get an IUD if not for birth control purposes?  Did I read that wrong?  My OBGYN had me get one because I can’t be on hormonal bc because of migraines… I was under the impression the dosage is so small it doesn’t tamper with your body too much… ?
