Got an Answer?
Hi Ladies, thanks for taking the time to reply with your experiences & advice. I really appreciate it. I had a couple Panadol & Nurofen before the appt, tried to be calm & concentrate on my breathing (I was a bit anxious about the possible pain & being able to complete the appt). There was of course some discomfort & a bit of pain & bleeding, but was able to complete the change over. The Gyno wants me to have an ultrasound though, to confirm the placement is fine. Once again ladies, thank you!
It hurts for either as your cervix isn’t open at the time. Nothing to do with if it has ever opened. Just get another form of contraception
Fine when it was taken out, no pain.
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.
I had it inserted after only a c section in the office and it was painful. I was shaking and sore afterwards and bled heavily. It was a female obstetrician who I later discovered had a reputation for being rough.
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’ve had 2 natural births and went to have my Mirena our a few months ago but the doctor was struggling to grab it and it hurt me a a lot so I’m waiting to have it removed under GA.
No C sections. But it's just like a pap smear well it was for me. The insertion hurt a tiny bit, more so uncomfortable. And having it removed was something. The speculum going in was the most uncomfortable part. Was over within 20 seconds. After I have my baby I will have the Mirena put back in. I loved it. Worked great for me :)
