IUD insertion tips

Thought I’d share— Ways to prevent unnecessary pain during IUD insertion: a) The softer and more dilated your cervix is, the less painful the insertion will be. Get the insertion done while you are on your period; b) Ask your provider about misoprostol as a vaginal suppository. Insert ten hours prior to insertion visit to further soften the cervix; c) Take 800 Mg ibuprofen (this amount is rx strength) every six hours beginning 24 hours prior to your insertion visit; d) ask your provider about squirting (not injecting) lidocaine into the cervix prior to insertion. There is a simple straw-like device called Endocell that can do this. This will help numb the cervix and ease pain.
If all of the above measures are taken, your IUD insertion will feel more like period cramping than death. Too many providers are completely oblivious to these methods, so ask before you schedule your appointment! You don’t need to be afraid or go through hell! IUD removals do not hurt. Also, IUD insertions are far easier for women who have given birth vaginally.

    Wish I’d seen this a year ago. And yes, the removal hurt just as fucking bad. But yeah this would have helped a lot.
