Hi Nicole, I have no advice for you as I have never used and IUD, but I just wanted you to know that someone here cares. Sorry no one has answered your post. I would just do as much research as you can and then make an educated choice. By the way, what an adorible baby Evan is!!! Well, I need to go, we are having a harvest party at church tonight. Just wanted to say Hi and let you know I was thinking of you. Kasie
hi. I just wanted to post that i have the copper IUD as i did not want to have any hormones. It is comfortable and I do not feel it at all. It was a bit pain full having it inserted because my doc had to open my cervix a bit. I felt like i was in labor again but it only took a minute. any way good luck.
I had the Mirena IUD. It did hurt going in, but just for a couple of minutes. Afterward, I had cramps for the rest of the day, but nothing unmanageable. I did have spotting/bleeding for about three months afterward, and then occassional spotting between periods. I removed it after eight months, though, due to weight gain and acne. It wasn't for me, but that doesn't mean it won't work for you. Good luck!
