I'm just curious as to what everyone's experience was like with the IUD (Mirena) insertion. I have a consultation for the IUD with my GYN on Friday and was just wondering what to expect.

I have the 10 year, paragard, but I"m sure that the actual insertation is the same.

When it was being put in I felt a pinch when it passed my cervix and some cramping when it was put into my uterus. After that I didn't have any cramping just some spotting for about 4 days afterward. I've not had any break-through bleeding or anything. Overall, I would say on the pain scale it's about a 2 or 3 out of 10. Not as bad as what I expected.

I have the Mirena one. On a scale of 1-10 that "pinch" was like a 6. lol. and I had cramping after that (it was also put in when my bleeding from my period was really light) and then after that heavy bleeding for the rest of the day and part of the next.

I have the Paragard and I also felt a pinch very similar to a pap smear. I had some cramping & spotting afterwards, but I took an ibuprofen and was fine the rest of the day. The spotting lasted about 2 days, but I just needed a pantyliner.

Hope that helps, (oh and donít worry, I have horrible luck anything that can go wrong does so it probably will not be that bad for you)

When I had the IUD inserted it didn't hurt at all. I barely even felt it. I took some Motrin before my appointment, and for the next day or two, and that helped with what little cramping I felt.

My insertion was about a 6 out of 10. It hurt me. I had semi-bad cramping and bleeding that lasted for 2 days. I have been on it for 2 and a half months and I have had spotting and cramping everyday. I want to get off of it as soon as I can. I want to be BC free.
