Well, my second IUD is out of place. How disappointing...
As suggested by some, I've started looking into getting the Gynefix. Therefore, I'm looking for experiences--positive and negative. What is insertion like? What are periods usually like? Did you have an IUD before getting the Gynefix that you swapped out? Have you experienced much spotting?
I would be going to Willow Women's Clinic in Vancouver, so I have no concerns about the experience of the doctor. Also, I would opt for a guided ultrasound, if that's not already the default.
Basically, my main question is this: is the Gynefix less likely to move around? I've heard conflicting stories--some people say it's less likely to expel (which I assume would transfer over to a shift in position as well), while others say it has a higher expulsion rate. ARGH.
This whole thing is very frustrating and expensive. >:(
Also, has anybody had experience with multiple IUDs not working (like me) and had one stick? Do you think, personally, that the Gynefix would be more likely to work? Are there any studies that might back this up? I don't want to go back to HBC, but that's my other option. Either that or Mirena, I suppose, but I don't want to deal with irregular periods as that's not super awesome for my anxiety.
According to the doctor I saw today, my uterus is shaped normally and is a normal size, and from what she can see there's not really any reason for it to be so angry at my IUDs, so she recommended trying ANOTHER one (of the same kind I have now, a Flexi-T) under guided insertion with a VERY skilled and seasoned veteran IUD doctor. But it just seems to me like all of the risks would be the same.
I'm not sure what to do. At any rate, I'm up for one more shot before I throw in the towel. That being the case, I'm leaning more towards trying something different with the Gynefix.
Thoughts or advice?
