INSERTION: This is my second IUD, but I wanted to just say that insertion is HORRIBLE. It is extremely painful and the doctors don’t tell you. They say you’ll cramp and you’ll be fine, but I almost vomited and fainted the first time I had mine inserted. The second time I borrowed painkillers from my dad (past surgery) and was OKAY… Just another reason women’s healthcare SUCKS.
PERIOD: I usually get my period monthly with my IUD, sometimes just spotting, but mostly regular. I haven’t gotten it the last two months, and although I took a pregnancy test (negative), I am super confused and nervous. I just moved, so I know there has been a lot of stress, but I also don’t have a doctor yet… Has anyone else experienced super rapid hormonal changes like this? I’m not even experiencing my usual painful boobs before my period or PMS.. it’s all very odd.
