  • Not painful, just a moment or two of discomfort. You may feel a slight pinch, but I found it was not much more "painful" than a yearly exam. And it is over quick enough.

  • Not painful at all.... maybe "uncomfortable" for a sec... then you might cramps the next couple of days... wasnt nothing major for me... i love the IUD!! so glad i got it!!

  • Its not painful. It was just some mild cramping. Maybe if you wanted to, you can take a pain reliever a couple hours before hand so the cramping isnt bad. It takes about 5 mins to put in and your done. If you are one that gets light headed-then have someone drive you back home in case. But really simple and a good choice!! Good Luck :)

  • yep... but its brief.. there is a slight pinch... my doctor told me that she could numb me, but that would hurt just as much... so i just said nope, lets get it over with, so she did, and it only took a few minutes.. ive had mine in for 7 months, and LOVE IT! the first few months were annoying.. but wow, after your body gets use to it there... its wonderful.. i havent had a period yet either.. something that could have been classified as a period was so light, it only lasted a day,

  • No pain, no cramping. Kind of light headed for 10 seconds. Then measuring and clipping the string. Second time no light headedness, nothing. Okay so they were 10 years apart. lol.

  • It's not that bad. It hurts less than a baby coming out and hurts more than making a baby :)

  • There is a little pain like a pitch for just a second then its over and its just awkward for a few minutes then its over. you may cramp for a day or two but just take a few IB profin and your good to go.

  • i had mine for 3 years and i loved it! i wouldn't even say it was a pain more like an annoyance kinda a pinch...i had a little spotting after i got it in but that was only for like 30min and it took about 3 months to have no period..i took mine out to have another baby and it didn't hurt to take it out either! Good luck! its a life saver!!
