I recently got the Mirena IUD, how do I convince my husband that he won't hurt me if we have sex?

My husband is so afraid that he is going to hurt me if we have sex. I told him this IUD isn't going anywhere for at least five years. I feel great and I've definately got my sex drive back. What can I say to him to help him understand that he shouldn't feel the IUD at all? That people have sex every day while on Mirena?! I'm getting frustrated.

  • Take control of the situation :) I had the same problem with my SO when I got mine. I pretty much had to jump him, then he got over it when he noticed I wasn't in pain afterward. Good luck!

  • I got the paragard IUD a month ago and LOVE it. My hubby and I hadn't really used any other kind of birth control before, because I can't use anything with horomones. He will NOT hurt you in any way, neither your husband or you will feel anything. I forget mine is there. I just have to remember to do the monthly check to maie sure it is still there. My husband couldn't wait to try it out.

    Good Luck!!!!

  • maybe mirena's website would have a video showing how the iud is placed in your body and that it will not move nor hurt you in any way?

  • Go to the web site for this IUD and SHOW him just how DEEP Inside you this thing is. If a picture of where it is actually inside you cant convince him, than nothing will.

  • Explain it to him...You could have sex the same day you had it put it....Maybe hes scared he will feel it?? He wont...everyone that I know thats has one...told me that their men couldnt feel it. Just rape
