I have inserted several in my patients, some relate it to be painful, others don't. I always give my patients a presc<x>ription for pain medicine before the procedure so the don't have to top at the pharmacy after the procedure. Try to focus on something positive, I usually have a nurse to hold the patients hand. They are a good distraction, before they know it, the procedure is over. Best of luck. Think positive.
Take 800 mg motrin and breathe through it. The worst is measuring ur uterus. I have one and it wasnt that bad
I recommend taking something beforehand. It really does hurt - there's the first part, when you're thinking "okay, that was pretty bad, but it's over now"... and, then there's the next part that, for, me seemed to take for-freaking-ever. I had bad aching in my abdomen after, and for the entire day. :/ The upside is that I hardly have a period now.
it hurts WAY more than tattoos ^.^ kind of a deep, drawing ache - like PMS from hell.
Ah. It's still the best birth control method, imo. Definitely take Advil, as 3grnowl suggested. Plan on not doing anything for a few hours after, except cuddling with a hot water bottle. Take care. :)
It hurts really really bad, especially if you have not recently (or ever) had a child. A lot of cramping. I wanted to scream at my doctor to take it out the moment she put it in, but I knew I had to suck it up.
I never had a tattoo so I couldn't compare. I would definitely take the Advil, and it wouldn't hurt to ask for a dilator. Good luck to you.
