I just got skyla today. I was nervous but luckily it wasn't as bad as I was expecting. The procedure did hurt but it was bearable & over before I knew it. Also, well worth it. If you are wondering what to expect just like I was than I will let you know. My doctor had me lie down & put my feet in the stirrups. Then she shined a light & put the spectrum in me. Next she measured my ce ... Show Full Comment

I had planned to get an IUD once the Affordable Care Act made them free. I freaked out when I saw the insertion device, but followed through with it. I actually wanted a mirror to watch what was going on. It hurt for about five minutes, and then I had period-like cramps for the next few days (I had already been on my period though). Since then I've had light periods, more like spotting really, ... Show Full Comment

I have been on Skyla since Dec. 12 2014. So Just over a month. (NO KIDS). Getting it put in felt like really bad cramp with a lot of pressure. They insert the stick and measurer you first.

I was on my period when I had ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I got Skyla inserted 5 months ago. I had some pain during insertion, but nothing too bad, and some light cramping in the first 24 hours after insertion. Other than that, I've had no pain or cramping. I had my period once since it has been placed, but have extremely light spotting (I'm talking I don't even need a pantiliner kind of light) throughout the month. I could do without the spo ...

Comment:
I am extremely sensitive to birth control; I have tried many variations of the pill and hated them all as well as could not remember to take it. I got the IUD in May 2014 (it has been six months). Insertion was extremely painful as I have never had children or been pregnant. I was fine the next day though and experienced cramping off and on for about three weeks as well as spotting. I have always ... Show Full Comment
