Woot woot!

I have an appointment to have my IUD removed next Wednesday & then we'll be officially TTC! I'm so excited!

Has anyone had an IUD removed before? Is this more painful than having it inserted?

  • Congrats! I haven't had an IUD removed, but when they put it in it didn't hurt too bad. I hope it's a painless procedure for you.

  • It was a very slight sting, like they pinched you with the speculum. That's all.

  • I just had mine out in December. I expected it to hurt because it didn't exactly tickle when they inserted it, but it was done painlessly. When the doctor had it out she showed me the IUD and I hadn't realized it was already out yet.

  • Getting it out is way quicker/easier than having it put in. It'll be a breeze. : )
