Mirena insertion friday **UPDATE***
I just got the Mirena iud inserted today! (Jan 24th). Im glad to say the insertion was a BREEZE! I felt no pain and one tiny cramp when he was measuring my uterus. It was 2-3 minutes total, tops. I even had a tilted uterus he said and it was still fast and easy! The only issue I had was after everything was done, i was standing making a follow up appointment. At this point i had been standing for about 3 or 4 minutes and i started to get dizzy and sweat like crazy. I lost all color and almost passed out (i dont ever pass out). I sat down, had some cold water and it passed in a few minutes. Luckily i knew that could happen so i didnt have a panic attack. All i have is a minor cramp on my right side (almost exactly like the feeling you get when you ovulate) definitely dont need pills. Im using a heating pad and i dont even need that. Hardly any bleeding as well. Seriously. This was so much easier than i even hoped for. Hopefully this can. Bring some woman a little comfort! So fast and easy for me.
Hi! I just discovered this place so please bare with me. I have a question that I cant seem to find and answer for, so I wanted to see if anyone had some helpful insight,opinions, or personal experiences.
5 years ago I had an abortion (this is the only thing I am not looking for an opinion on as its long past and I had my reasons, so please nothing negative) I was 10 weeks pregnant when I had the procedure. That was my first and only pregnancy. I didn't find the procedure to be very painful, just cramping.
I am now getting the Mirena put in on Friday (today is tuesday). My question is, does it matter that i didn't give birth? Could the insertion process be not as painful as i HAVE experienced my cervix being dilated? And there has been something in my uterus at one point.
Some extra info: I am now 23, haven't been on BC for a few years, never had many problems with it except weight gain with Depo. I am also going to my gyno who is very very experienced, the receptionist told me he does it all the time and that i don't need to take any pain meds before hand, although she is weary because i haven't given birth.
Thanks in advance if anyone can give me some insight!!
