  • I wasn't on my period when either of mine were placed and when I had the first one removed I wasn't on my period either.

  • hmmm.. interesting. My doctor always had me schedule apps. in between periods. I've had both types of IUD's put in during the middle of my cycle.

  • Same here, I had the Paraguard put in in between periods as well. I had to have it taken out because of some major complications. But my GYN wanted to take it out at the end of my cycle. I had the Mirena put in when I wasn't having my period. I still have it in, so I am not sure when they take the Mirena out.

  • I didn't have my period when mine was removed. I didn't feel a thing...
