Ladies who have only had C-Sections, how painful is Mirena insertion / removal in Doctor's office?
Answered 2 years ago
I know it may be a first world problem, but here goes .....
I've had 2 C-Sections, due to my very narrow pelvis. I decided on the Mirena for contraception. My doc advised me to have it inserted/removed/changed while under GA (General Anesthetic). He has tried with previous patients in the clinic, but it was too painful, because the cervix has never opened up. So I've had the last 2 Mirena's done under GA. It's due to be changed tomorrow, althougth it's been cancelled due to COVID-19 (totally understandable). My Gyno wants to try it their clinic today, no GA. I'm worried & anxious about how painful it will be, but I have no choice, it's due to be removed.
Does anyone have some helpful advice?
Have an answer?
Take deep breaths in and slowly out , try to stay calm and relaxed. Focus on something and breathe slowly. It didn't hurt the first time she tried. It was the next 6 times she tried. But turns out I have endometriosis now and polyps and fibroids. Which is why mine was extremely painful the next few times she tried to insert it.
The gp who took it out didn’t understand why I was nervous. When I explained she was horrified, said if I’d never had a vaginal birth it should have been with anasthesia.
I'm dreading today's appt, I'm sure it'll hurt too much.
Need the GA
