I am 6 weeks postpartum and will be getting an IUD placed on aug 9th. What should I expect? Does it hurt? What are you likes and dislikes? What are your periods like? Thanks everyone!

I had an IUD for apx 6 years. When it was inserted it wasn't much worse than a regular pap smear. Don't we all love those:) My periods where fairly normal but towards the last year and a half I started cramping pretty bad so I had it removed. My last child was born 7 years later with no other birth control used. I liked the fact that I didn't have to take a pill every day the cramping towards the end was probably the thing I disliked the most. IMO I wouldn't hesitate recommending the IUD. Hope this helps. Oh and by the way, my last child is now 11 so its been a while.
