I am going to get my IUD in a few weeks and I am a tad bit nervose. the week before I have to get a biopsy of my cervix so I am going to sore from that, and then from what I understand the insertion of the IUD is not the most comfortalbe thing either.
How long does the discomfort usually last?? The paper work the my OB says to take some IBprofen or tylonal before hand and also after for cramps.
Will I be up for sex anytime with in the week after that? (not trying to rush it, but my boyfriend/father or my son is going out of town and he can't wait! lol I am just worried that I am not going to feel up to sex, and he is going to want to before he leaves. (Though if I am not, I know he will understand, just my siightly dispointed)
Will I bleed (spotting, or period) after I have it placed? I am breastfeeding and have not had a period yet so I am not sure what to expect with the IUD. Do you even have periods when you have an IUD? I am getting Mirena not ParaGuard.
I discussed my options with my OB and knowing my medical history with almost every type of birth control we decided Mirena was best for me. I have heard all of the horror stories about Mirena and ParaGuard both. I am not looking for any comments or judgments about the type of IUD. Simply just looking for answers to my questions.
Thanks for the help laides.
