I got my IUD yesterday after no problem, i didnt feel a thing. My dr. said he was done and i didnt believe him. and now I have NO bleed and NO cramps...nothing. But my question is, do they work instanly? I have the Mirena. Which is the 5 yr one. I think im going to love it. But me and DH did the deed today and i let him release in me not thinking if it is an instant fix. so now im freaking out b/c i know im Ovulating...i always start to the 4 day of my period. i was when i conceived my son. thanks for the advice in advanced...

birth control

an intrauterine device, it takes 10 minutes to put in. its like getting your tubs tied but comeplete reversable.

I heard you are supposed to use a condom for a month. I am not sure though-I would ask the doctor.

did they give you any literature on the IUD? you might read through it if they did, because i would imagine that topic would be covered. if not call the dr. 1st thing in the AM.

well i did some research it said after proper insertion that the affect is immdiate and that any normal routine in cluding unprotected s_x can be done.

I'm glad the procedure went good for you!! i had some slight cramping a couple days afterward, then started a "period" after about 6 days. i too was told it was effective immed. it's nice not having to worry about taking the pill every night.
