paragard update

well i got it today and it hurt less than getting a pap smear to put it in... but i've got pretty bd cramps now. wish i had something more than ibuprofen (i'm taking 800mg and it still wears off before its time for the next dose). and i'm doing some spotting.
i drove myself but had a sitter for my older kids. took my 4 month old with me.

  • I would read the literature that the doctor's office gave you. If you are really hurting, call your doctor.

    Good luck, I hope you feel better.
