How long after a c-section should you wait to get an IUD placed? I
went for my 6 week check up and my doctor was all ready to put it in
but then I reminded her that I had a c-section (I can't believe she
forgot and/or didn't look at my records). She was concered about
putting IUD so shortly after surgery because of risk of it slipping
through my uterine wall. She want to wait until 12 weeks post
To make a long story short...my medicaid is about to run up in a couple days and I really can't afford an IUD on my own and I just don't trust myself with the mini pill. (New baby makes it hard for me to remember to take it on time and I am NOT ready to conceive again). Another docto at the practice is able to get me in before medicaid expires and I will be 9 weeks post c-section. Who has the IUD who also had a c-section and can you tell me how long you waited? I'm really nervous about the whole procedure anyway. I heard it can be rather painful.
