Are there any side effects when having an IUD removed?

I have had the Mirena Iud now close to 5 years, so it is coming up on the time to have it removed. My plan is to have a new one reinserted. I am just wondering what the process of having one removed is? Painful? Are there any complications?

  • Simple and quick. You may feel a little pinch and a little discomfort while they are doing it, but nothing more uncomfortable than your yearly checkup IMO.
