IUD

I am getting one put in on Monday, can anyone tell me about how much pain to expect and do I want my husband to drop me off or will it be fine to drive myself?

  • it didnt hurt to have it in...but i did cry cuz i was scared and hormonal, lol! i have the copper one. i had a little cramping and felt a slight pinch, the the worst part was just the "opening" of the vagina haha. you should be able to drive yourself.
