meanmutton: It's odd to me, as a man, that more women don't choose to get an IUD instead of hormonal birth control, particularly now as they're free if you have health insurance.
A Terrible Human: So since I smoked the entire time I was on bc,more than 3 years,I'm probably going to go blind extra quick?
Luthien's Tempest: meanmutton: It's odd to me, as a man, that more women don't choose to get an IUD instead of hormonal birth control, particularly now as they're free if you have health insurance.If you've never had a child, some practitioners won't give you one, because there's a chance that a) it won't fit, b) your cervix won't open up enough to allow it in, and/or c) a slightly higher chance of expulsion or other complications. I've heard that insertion is also more painful for women who've never been pregnant, and providers are loath to provide one unless you promise that the pain won't get to you and that you won't be back in under a month to have it out. I pretty much had to beg for mine, but the likelihood that I'd go back to the pill at this point is negligible. I think a lot of it comes down to lack of knowledge, though. I didn't find out about it until I went looking because I don't get along with the pill. Well that and some young women are afraid of the pain just after insertion. I do recommend it any time the subject of birth control comes up, though.
SundaesChild: I loved mine until it got lost in my uterus and had to be removed, quite painfully.
Luthien's Tempest: SundaesChild: I loved mine until it got lost in my uterus and had to be removed, quite painfully.Eeeek! I'd probably still feel I came out ahead since the pill worsened my depression (and I'm enjoying the no menstrual cycle thing), but I could see how that would change many people's opinions *shudder*I found it odd that going into it, I was worried about what might happen in the future with things going wrong, but the NP who inserted mine was infinitely more worried about the insertion pain and me wanting it out soon after having it inserted. Two years in, though, and so far, so good.
