Hi everyone,

So a few months ago, I posted about my experience trying to get an IUD in Ireland. The doctor I saw there was pretty terrible, so I decided to wait until I got back to the States. Well, I'm back now--I had my consultation at the Bellevue, WA Planned Parenthood, since although it's a little out of the way for me, I've heard good things about it in terms of IUDs. I was not disappointed! Unlike my experience in Dublin, I didn't have to play 20 questions with the doctor, in fact, I think our meeting was pretty short. For months, I was sure I was going to go for the Paragard, but after a rather unpleasant period last month, I decided that I'd really rather try a Mirena. So, in about 9 hours I'll be getting an IUD! I'm a bit nervous, but I feel so so so much better than when I was in Dublin.

Glad to hear you finally got your IUD!

(p.s. for those of you in Ireland, there are docs here who'll do it- you just have to shop around a bit. And, yes, answer a whole load of questions... *sigh*)

Yeah, she *would* do it, but she made such a fuss about it, that I just decided to screw it and wait until I got home. The people at Dublin Well Woman Centre were so pleasant when I as on the phone with them, but then as soon as I got there and they found out that I was np, they really didn't want to do it.

That sounds right, alright. I had a hell of a job convincing my doc to give me the Mirena. Glad to hear you had an easier time getting it back home :)

Oh wow! What part of WA are you in? I got mine done at the Kenmore clinic, and they were really nice and helpful. That is the only PP clinic I've been too but it's the only one I'm going to go to. They've always been very good to me. I just had a paragard put in a few weeks ago and I'm so glad that I did! HBC was killing me and my mood so it was time to get rid of it...

If Kenmore isn't too far for you I'd suggest them! I guess if the Bellevue one isn't any good, at least.

Thanks :) The Bellevue one was great, although, if, heaven forbid, my IUD expels, maybe I'll look into the Kenmore PP. It'd be a bit out of the way, but luckily, my fiance likes to drive :)
