So I had my an IUD put in last june, since then I can count on one hand how many days I haven't bled from it. At first I thought my body needed to get used to it, but now i've just decided enough is enough. I always feel "bloated" and feel like it's the best. My concern is that it's going to mess up my body, more than it is now ( like will I bleed for another few weeks or something ) I am getting married in 17 days, and going on our honeymoon and am hoping not to be bleeding for once. Has anyone had any experience with it being removed?
Also, I obviously need to go on birth control again, what could I go on that would start working right away?
Thanks for any advice

It's very hard to say how long you'll bleed after it's removed, every woman's body is different! The time it takes the uterine lining and cervix to heal from the IUD can vary from woman to woman.

Any type of hormonal birth control has the potential to cause spotting as a side effect (among other much more serious risks), especially if you are typically sensitive to synthetic hormones. Unfortunately, none come with a guarantee that you won't bleed. The only way to know is by trying it and seeing how your body responds to it.

Depends on the IUD used. Was it hormonal? If not, (paraguard) I did not bleed at all, as it does not disrupt your normal cycle. If it was hormonal, then you might have an early AF when it comes out. Have you thought about leaving it in until after the wedding? Spotting might be better than a full af. BC might take up to 30days to become effective. They say to back up the pill with condoms for the first 30days.

I don't have any advice on having it removed (I'm having mine out in a couple weeks) but I do know about birth control. The only thing that will be sure to work immediately is a condom or blocking method like a diaphragm. Any form of hormonal method technically takes at least a week to start working, and it's far safer to wait a month before you don't use any other method.

Thanks for the replies. I had it out and it wasn't painful at all. My dr and I decided to go with depo since I have had that before with no issues. I also started back on my anti anxiety meds to hopefully help waiver any "crash" that might start from the mirena. Also, I stopped bleeding as soon as it came out and haven't seen any blood since.Apparently mirena just isn't for me

I had my IUD for just over 4 years and had it removed 3 weeks ago. I spotted the first day, after that nothing. I've started what I'm guessing is a period as of today, but I'm not sure yet!

The biggest thing is the mirena crash. It takes some time for your body to adjust to not having those hormones so be prepared to not feel your best for a few weeks.
