IUD placement

ket ket
I'm so glad I stumbled upon this article- I actually just got an IUD placed yesterday.
During the placement it was awful- some of the worst pain I've even felt, but when I left the office it felt fine. Last night, however, I had cramps that would last for about two minutes of intense pain, then just be achy for about three minutes, then intense pain again. I debated going to the emergency room, but I called my doctor and she said it was normal. Today I feel fine (if not extremely horny lol) but I'm nervous about tonight and whether it will be like last night. Overall I feel pretty good about how I feel- has anyone else had any experience with an IUD? I'd love to hear some encouraging stories- everyone always talks about the bad stuff, but I just really need something positive lol

Hi Ket,
Which type of IUD did you get? My experiences are with Mirena, so that's what I'll be talking about.
Like you, insertion was very painful for me. I think the first month or so was a roller coaster of pain and cramping, some spotting, and then nothing, all to have it come back again with some MORE pain and spotting. The following months, my uterus finally "accepted" its new roommate and learned to live with it. I hear that's the hardest part. Over time, though, the cramps and pain dwindle down. I have had my IUD for a little over a year now. Until recently, I'd have occasional cramping or spotting, but for the most part, I was generally free of pain after the first few months. So, there is hope things will get better! My advice to you would be to make friends with a heat pack and learn Reiki (energy work) or have someone do Reiki on you. If I knew about Reiki when I went through that first month, I think things would have been much smoother. Surprisingly the whole "mind over matter" trick really works. Visualize your IUD and uterus getting along, lol!

I have the paraguard (and I've had three kids). I had it put in when I was not on my period and it was slightly painful (but I took an 800mg ibuprophen before I went). I had cramps and spotting on and off for the first month or so, now I still don't have a regular cycle and because I chose to go the non hormonal route my periods are heavy and atleast 7 days.

I had a Paragaurd for about 3 years after my chid was born. I won't bombard you with negativity, but I decided that it wasn't for me. That's why I chose to remove it after 3 years when I could have had it in place for 7 more years.
However, I will say that the best thing was just never worrying about birth control for 3 years. There was never a moment where I worried about getting pregnant and I loved the carefree sex, and I hope you do too!

I hated insertion.I have mirena. I was in pain for about 3 months afterwards too. However I have had mine for nearly 3 years now and it was the best choice I've ever made and I will be replacing it in 2 years. But at the beginning over summer vacation instead of at the end because chasing kids around in pain is HELL. I couldn't have sex for 3 months without pain with the IUD. Not because of the IUD but because of my uterine muscles. 3 years later though I love not having to think about a condom and sex with my partner is amazing he cannot feel it

I had a mirena placed a year and a half ago. I've never had kids, so the placement was extra painful. However, about six months in, the cramping and bleeding stopped just as they said it would. Now I don't have periods, I don't have cramps, I don't even get pms.

I had pain and cramps from my Mirena for about a year. From things like running and sex. And spotting for 2 months until I figured out I could stop it with an herbal supplement. My cramps are finally gone and things are awesome.
