Sending you some feel better thoughts. Interested in hearing how you do with it. I’ve been strongly considering Paragard, and also haven’t had any children. My dr says she has some tricks to make insertion better in those without children, but we’ll see. I have a feeling it is going to hurt.

I did Depo for a few years and tried a few forms of the pill, but I’ve determined that anything hormonal and my body just do not mix. Hello weight gain and mood swings! Frown

Hope the side effects calm down for you!

Man, I hope you feel better soon. I was given the option of Depo (which usually causes weight gain), an IUD, or just taking monophasics for three months straight and then a week off. Guess which one I picked! I have to give you major props for doing Depo AND an IUD. I’m too big of a wuss to do it. Hugs!

I had Mirena put in about 6 months ago, never having had children. Insertion was easy but I had wicked cramps for a few days after insertion and bled for a few weeks (period-like, not fresh blood) but it was absolutely 100% worth it. I’m completely willing to go through a few weeks of discomfort for the ease and freedom I have now. I hope you recover well!

you will have spotting for like a month or so. i had a coloscopy the same time and it was terrible bleeding. i thought i was going to die. it will get better and an iud was the best decision i have ever made! (especially the para guard ones!)

I had the paragaurd after my first child and it still hurt to be inserted. Luckily taking it out is so much easier, you hardly feel it and it is as low maintence as it gets.

OH god. I love my Mirena. They gave me a valium before hand. And they had one of these workers drive me home (I knew her). And it still hurt.

I guess I’m having a different experience.  I have the Mirena and I’ve had it for over a year. I had it implanted 6 weeks after having my little girl.  It caused me to bleed for 3 months straight.  I finally stopped bleeding, but I still have a period and it lasts for two weeks at a time……I honestly feel like getting the IUD was the worst decision for me…….I’m planning on having it removed soon.

My OB won’t even put the Mirena in women who haven’t had kids. She says she doesn’t want to deal with that. Mine didn’t hurt going in. Kind of felt like mild labor pains and cramping. Nothing I couldn’t breathe through. I only had cramps for maybe 2 hours after that.

I had light periods for 6 months and then I haven’t had a period in about 4 years. My IUD comes out next year and I would love for them to put it back in, but Mr. Tattoo wants to start trying.

My insurance (at the time of insertion) actually had a penalty against women who got the IUD and took it out before the 5 years was up. I don’t know if that’s still the case. I guess we will be pull and pray from May to Sept next year. I refuse to get on the pill.

I’ve never had any children, and I had Mirena put in, and oh man, did it hurt! I was dealing with the pain, but all the sudden my blood pressure dropped, and I almost passed out! Unfortunately for me, when that happens, for some reason it makes me have to go to the bathroom, like immediately, but they obviously wouldn’t let me stand up and made me wait for a wheelchair to wheel me to the restroom. I thought I was going to have a major accident right there on the table. So embarassing! I just barely made it, thank goodness! Unfortunately, after all that, I ended up having to get it taken out 6 months later. Big waste of money for me!

Hope your cramping goes away soon, and you have a good experience with it unlike mine!
