I had an IUD for 8 months...just got it out last week.
I had it removed because I was experiencing a really bad pain where my left ovary/left side of my uterus is and it was getting so bad I was sure something was wrong. So, I went and got tested for every infection possible, every std and it came back negative. I had my IUD removed last wednesday.
Thursday I woke up and was bleeding pretty heavily and the pain was starting to ease up and I was looking less bloated.
I bled til' Sunday and then the pain was gone completely and I was back to normal size.
Well, I took a pregnancy test because I had unprotected sex on October 26th (with the iud in place) and I just wanted to make sure. There was the slightest hint of a line in the test area...so light that it wasn't even colored, and i thought i was going crazy cause i coudln't tell if it was really there or not. Took my test apart and the test part was wet and wiped off
