    This post is to alleviate the stress that so many women must feel prior to insertion. While pain tolerances and experiences will obviously vary from woman to woman, the insertion was nowhere near the most painful experience of my life. It was uncomfortable and the part where they measured my uterus was the most painful, but slow breathing got me through those 20 seconds just fine. Take Advil ahead ... Show Full Comment

    I had Mirena inserted about five months ago because I was looking for a convenient low-hormone birth control. It was a difficult and painful insertion process, although I'm told my experience was abnormally difficult. Most people I know had little trouble and mild discomfort when their IUDs were inserted.

I went to Dr office today and while waiting in waiting room, I decided that I was going to skip the mirena and ask for the pill. When I went in exam room the nurse made me feel a little bit better about the whole thing. Then my Dr. Came in ( which I ... Show Full Comment
