Do the hormonal IUDs have the same benefits as the birth control pill in regards to regulating periods and helping with acne, etc.?
The mirena is really great at regulating periods, in that it can cause you to not have periods and it causes the bleeding and other symptoms to go down by 90%. I’ve heard Jaydess is less good at treating menstruation symptoms, but I’ve not heard enough about Skyla because it’s so new (Skyla users please chime in!). The IUDs aren’t as good at regulating other things like acne because it is localized in the uterus. It’s good in that you have less chance for side effects, but if you want some of the side effects like acne treatment go with the pill.

my doctor told me not to because she had another patient whose IUD got pulled out because of the suction from the cup
What you’re supposed to do any time you take out the menstrual cup is break the suction seal with your finger by putting it up over the lip. Some people don’t know to do this, which can cause pain or problems even without an IUD. I’ll go ahead and do some more research to see if there’s any other advice or problems, but I’ve never heard of there being a problem. I’ll post more about it later.

Do you know if Skyla is truly significantly smaller? My doctor measured me as too small for Mirena even post partum! Major disappointment
Mirena is 1.3 by 1.3 inches, whereas Skyla is 1.1 by 1.2 inches.
It doesn’t hurt to ask your doctor about it!

I didn’t have any until my first period time came around and I still haven’t really had a period but more like a week and a half of spotting. It seems to be going away though.
Good point! Your bleeding tends to get less and less the more you’re on it.

Can you use a menstrual cup if you have an IUD?
How bad is spotting after periods/insertion?
It largely depends on the person.
For hormonal: The first couple of days after insertion you may need a pad or other period product. I’ve known a couple of people who said they needed to use a light product for up to 3 months after insertion, but usually it’s really light and doesn’t last very long. There’s a 30% chance you’ll stop having periods or won’t have any spotting after 3 months. Usually periods are reduced by 90%, so very light.
I would say if you have spotting after 3 months that’s annoying it’s a sign that you may need to try a different form of birth control.
For copper: a lot of people report that it can be pretty heavy and longer periods and spotting. Also more cramping
Followers, how was spotting for you? Be sure to add what kind of IUD you had.

How long does the pain/insertion last? I’m Interested in getting one, but I’m so nervous of pain!
The first pain is a little pinching sharp pain as they put it into your cervix. This lasts less than a minute. Then you have some cramps that can be intense last as they get it into place, this is maybe about 3 minutes. You can have less intense cramps anywhere from a few hours to 3 months after that. There are things you can do to help the cramps though, just like menstrual cramps.
