Just had IUD placed

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Just had IUD placed

Postby jadie_f » Sun Dec 20, 2009 8:13 pm

It didnt hurt at all (although I think I am still numb from childbirth). I laughed because I just stopped PP bleeding at 8 weeks, had the IUD placed 3 days later and started with HEAVY bleeding again, like a period, and cramping. It lasted 2 days now it seems to be gone, was this AF (I EBF) or just from the IUD, she said I would bleed a little but this wasnt a little. Just wondering if anyone had an IUD placed PP and what your experience was

I had the Paraguard placed 8 weeks after delivery, and ironically, on that same day, I got my first PP AF. Your experience sounds like bleeding from the IUD being placed. I was told that it was normal, and noticed my period was REALLY heavy. It continued to be extremely heavy, and I was always really crampy. I ended up having it removed because it was just ridiculous how much I was bleeding when AF showed up. I hope that isn't the case for you!

I also had a Paragard after my last pregnancy. The effects were good as I didn't get pregnant, but...the painful periods and heavy bleeding sucked for me. I kept it in for 14 months and then i just couldn't do it anymore. It caused me so much pain. Truthfully, after I had it removed, I felt completely different...all over. Like a huge weight had been lifted in some way. I had more energy and everything. It was weird. I hope you have a better experience than I did.

Good luck,

and yes, I did bleed for a few days after I had it placed.
