    I haven't had one but want to know too. It makes me squeamish. Lol.

    Copper iud. Like the mirena but no hormones to stuff up your cycle.

    I've had one twice now and it's never been painful going in. Just a bit of pressure down there.

    Thanks, I've had heaps of Pap smears. Doc said similar to that but more uncomfortable and recommended pain killers!

    the Mirena makes me really squeamish and I'm not sure I could handle it mentally myself. Just the thought.. But my gp and gyno keep trying to pressure me to give it a go cos its meant to be good for heavy bleeding.

    I haven't had mine in long enough to be sure yet (a month) but my OBGYN said more than 90% of his patients that have had it have had them either lighten majorly or disappear altogether! It was definitely a big factor for me as mine are fairly heavy for the first few days, and I'm awful at remembering anything!

    I took a voltaren and some panadol before hand and was fine, just a bit uncomfy. And I'm awful with pain!

    I used the mini pill between baby 1 and 2, after baby 2 tried the mirena which sent me off my head. After over 12 hours of non stop crying followed by extreme short temper I pulled it out myself and went back on the mini pill.
    unfortunately I have (last month) had a chemical pregnancy while using the mini pill correctly so hubby and I are not sure which way to go (I am still feeding our 21 month old daughter).
    There is no one answer for everyone, good luck with your decision

    I'm on the mini pill and will switch to pill when I stop breastfeeding.

    This. Or possibly Creightons, need to look into what is easier or more effective post-partum. We use natural family planning so it will be one or the other
