This was the best decision I ever made. Neither myself nor my boyfriend have ever felt the IUD when we are intimate. Some say the insertion is painful, but I did not find that to be the case. My doctor had me come in and get the IUD when I was menstruating, and I believe this helped a lot! She didn't even need to numb me during the procedure. I have also found that unlike birth control pi ... Show Full Comment

When I went home I had slight period like cramps just took ... Show Full Comment

Im 19 and just got my mirena inserted earlier today. The insertion was very uncomfortable and the cramps are really bad for the first hour or two, but beyond that it has been fine. I laid in the bath tub in warm water and that helped ease the cramping pain a little. I have been lightly spotting since I got it in, which they said is expected. The cramping may have been worse for me because I have n ... Show Full Comment
