i have an iud!



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.

Good for you. I have another friend that just went and had her tubes tied a week or so ago, having decided that she never wants to spawn. I'm all for prople making decisions about what they want to do with their bodies rather than letting biology and chance rule them.

My friend's 35 and she was still getting the "but you might change your mind" crap. She already has two kids anyway: four-footed furry ones. :)

it used to scare me too, but it's so much cheaper than any other type of birth control and it lasts for so long. i don't even feel it anymore or anything, it's the ultimate in convenience.

I got the same kind of IUD in September. I love it, but it messed up my period a little bit. It's a lot lighter now, but it lasts more than a week. Other than that, though, it's sooooooo great. I love not having to worry about pills.

Hope you're feeling better. When they were putting mine in, the IUD broke when they were pulling the IUD-putting-in-thing out of my uterus and they had to start all over again. I was fine the first time they put it in, but the second time I started bawling. It was sooo worth it though. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

how long were you crampy/bleedy afterwards? it's really annoying and i'm terrified that it'll expell or something. :\ it's not like terrible cramps, it's just dull soreness that comes in waves if that makes sense.

i'm glad i passed out during what was probably the worst of it. i can't even imagine having to immediately have one reinserted, i bet your uterus was pretty angry.

I was crampy for about a month after, but I only bled for a few days. I had the same kind of cramps you're describing-- nothing sharp and overwhelming, but I had lots of dull aches and I felt nauseated as well.

I was soooo scared it'd expell, but I've had it for three months now and I'm fine (knock on wood, eh?). I went to get it checked in early November and I got to see my cervix with the little IUD string hanging out of it! I have a pretty cervix.

At first I checked the string every week (and once I had my boyfriend check-- he's a trooper), but now I forget that I have it. IT'S SO AWESOME. You'll love it.
