it's hormonal, lasts 5 years, stops your period, and is made of happy bendy plastic. (as opposed to scary pokey copper)
anyone in south georgia that wants an iud, i suggest going to dr goldberg in douglas, he's so great.
i happened to have a miniseizure on the table though because of the stimulation to my cervix. i blacked out for like 30 seconds and my eyes rolled back in my head and my legs fell out of the stirrups. it scared the shit out of everyone, including myself as i had no idea where i was when i woke up.
i made it out alive though. and not having to worry about birth control for 5 years is so more than worth it. i'm on really close watch with my family right now though because that happened and they're all terrified that something might have gone wrong. i'm confident that it didn't though. i'm a bit generically sore, but not crampy or really hurty anymore.
i got to see my little plastic baby on an ultrasound. i wish i could have gotten a picture printed out of it. it made me ridiculously happy to see it on there, all nestled in my endometrium, preventing all the unpleasantries of being female.
