I got the Mirena IUD 6 days ago. I did not find the insertion to be very painful. I counted a total of 7 seconds of pain including the measuring and insertion. The cramps are bearable but I still have them. I as able to go about my day like normal on the day of insertion which was done early AM. I only spotted for the first day and have not had any spotting since then. I had sex 24 hours after ins ... Show Full Comment

I got the Mirena IUD put in 06/10/14 and from the second she put it in until the day I got it removed 1.5 months later, I was in the most excruciating pain I have ever experienced in my entire life. I could not even stand up straight because my cramping was so bad, Ive never had children and I can promise it was as bad, or worse than contractions. I was glued to my heating pad and went to the ER t ... Show Full Comment

I got mine inserted in October of 2011 and I was 22. I am a healthy, physically fit woman, but I have a thicker build (but I am by no means, fat, as some would call "thick"). Anywho, I was 140 lbs, 5'6", in great shape, great eating habits and everything when I got the Mirena, thinking it would be great for me. Well, a year later I had gained 30 POUNDS! and I was thinking it ... Show Full Comment

Got the Mirena in 5 days ago. Insertion hurt at times, but I've never had children. Really what hurt was when my doctor measured my uterus, actually put the applicator in, and then the arms on the IUD opened. That part really shocked me. It sort of sprung open. I haven't had any real spotting and just a day or two of cramping. The only spotting I've had is there's a little bi ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had mirena since 2009. I just had it replaced this last month. When I had my son I didn’t use any form of pain medication and in all honestly getting mirena replaced hurt more than having a baby. I have a fairly high pain tolerance. I remember when I had the first one put in pain, pinching, and cramps. But this time it was worse. Not sure it was because the other one got removed and then a new o ... Show Full Comment
