Quarantined, your experience sounds similar to mine. After the insertion I just laid on the table for an hour, and when I got up I was fine for a few seconds... then I found myself hobbling to the bathroom so I could throw up. Then my mom drove me home, I took a nap, and woke up fine.


Ugh, that is terrible, I'm sorry. I'm sorry yours has not worked out for you in the long run either. It seems to be quite a crepe shoot.

I am just over the two month mark and just had my checkup, and the placement seems to be fine, and my strings are tucked up so I don't feel them nor does my partner. Luckily I seem to be doing much better now and not having any significant cramping except during my period, and that is not too bad. However, although I have the non-hormonal Paragard, I am still transitioning off of oral hormonal birth control, so I imagine that once the hormones are completely out of my system I might have even heavier periods.

I've had my IUD in for three months now. The first month was annoying with spotting, but honestly; at this point I've never been happier. After being on the pill for years I can't believe I didn't switch sooner.

Has anyone had an IUD removed? Did that hurt or cause cramping afterward or anything like that? I'm mainly wondering if I will be able to go back to work after my appointment or if I should plan to go home for the rest of the day.

ETA: I don't know if it matters, but if it does, I had pretty severe cramping when it was inserted 4.5 years ago. It's a copper IUD (Nova-T).

Lobster: I have a hormonal one, but a friend had a copper one and they tend to cause more cramping when inserted. Also, you may have a harder time adjusting once it's taken out. My source for this is a friend.

When I had my first copper Paragard removed (which was pre-baby) I had some minor period-style cramping and spotting afterward, but it subsided after an hour or so. I had severe cramping with insertion as well and was laid up all day on the couch with a heating pad on my uterus. With removal I drove the 25 minutes home and went about my day just fine, but I'm sure the experience could vary! I didn't feel any different after removal, either.

If anyone is wondering, the removal of my 2nd one post-baby wasn't even noticeable.

Thanks! I might try to schedule it to work from home afterward just in case.
