I’ve heard from several friends that the insertion process and several days following can be extremely painful - and that not much is offered in the way of painkillers/pain relief. Is there a health reason, or is it unnecessary suffering?
I hated my IUD. There was a potential allergy issue with Paraguard, so I got Mirena and my body just never adjusted. Constant bloating, perpetual spotting, long periods, acne, painful orgasms. It was just not a good match.
