Prank Call of Cthulhu: wildcardjack: Quite frankly, I only know what it is because of an episode of House.

So you're saying whatever it is, it isn't lupus.


I enjoyed House in the day, still watch an episode from time to time. But I focus on the dialogue and interpersonal relationships, ignore the medical as best I reasonably can. He's always wrong about everything until the last few minutes when his insight saves the day. The format suggests that we should learn learn with each episode he'd been wrong about his solution from the previous episode.

(Saw a comedienne the other day--Julie Nolke, she's on YouTube--say that this season three of Covid is just the same plot lines from the first two seasons.)

I thought it was an IUD shaped pendant. It does not look insertion would be comfortable at all, and isn't that an extra loop on the back?

Prank Call of Cthulhu: When these were discussed in my high school health class one of the less bright dudes asked, "What if you, like, uh, hit that with your, uh, you know, when you're, uh, having sex? Wouldn't it hurt? Is that safe?"


Well, there are usually 'threads' at the one end that do protrude slightly so they can get it out easily. My wife's doctor said "If you or your husband notice them, they can be trimmed shorter."  I only hit them once, but yes, it hurt a lot. But other than that, it's been very reliable.

That's the only question from yesterdays Jimmy KImmel video that stumped me. I've heard of them, but never seen one before.

This is a Soviet MIRV-Six, from an SS-22N launch vehicle. The warhead contains 14.5 kilos of enriched uranium, with a plutonium trigger. The nominal yield is 10 kilotons.

Either that, or a snow cone maker.

Cuff links.

What, you guys don't wear your wife's IUDs as cufflinks?
I made the 3rd one into a tie tack anchor

Every time we took one out we got another kid.
So as far as we are concerned, we won against the doctors who told us not to reproduce.

Then why did you post? That cracks me up. You might as well of said, "I'm going to post something idiotic based on my own personal belief that has no basis in logic because I just like typing, and nobody better reply and give me any additional information which could possibly change my world view!"

Not sure why that's news.  A lot of people go around not knowing lots of things if they aren't exposed to them at some point.

If you've ever been stabbed in your dick hole by the pull strings on one of these things it can be a little disconcerting and also, good job, fire when ready.

Tenatra: kittyhas1000legs: It's a bad decision, and an unreliable form of birth control (from what I've heard from women at work).

Knew what it was the second I saw the image. My wife went to have hers removed only to told that it had become embedded. The surgical removal was $3,000 and she got to keep the device as a souvenir. I think we have it taped to a page in a nonsensical notebook covering our adventures in life together. Worth it for the baby girl I got out of the deal.

Wife did like that her periods and cramping were next to nil while this hook thing was inside her. However, she'd never suggest anyone get it because of her embedded wall experience.


My Mirena tried to get embedded but it had only been in there a few weeks so they were able to remove it before it perforated anything important. It was showing up in x-ray but not ultrasound for my follow up "was it placed correctly" visit.
Always a fun time knowing a tiny thing is burrowing into your guts and they can't find it.  That's that the IUD is supposed to prevent, not cause.
 
2022-01-14 9:05:10 AM  

Stands With A Tiny Fist: dsmith42: The devices used to be shiat. But the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation poured money into research years ago and turned them into the most reliable form of birth control. I guess the pill might be more reliable, but the IUD is "set it and forget it."

My understanding is that the differences (when the pill is taken on schedule - religiously, if you'll pardon the former-Catholic humor), fall well within statistical error. A draw, in other words.

That said, if you're at all like me and are occasionally not 100% reliable about medication of any kind, the IUD becomes the far better choice.


And when an IUD fails it's pretty funny.  You know how babies will reflexively grab anything you stick in their hand?  Well they do the same thing rolling around in the womb and it isn't uncommon for them to be born holding the IUD.
 
2022-01-14 9:05:12 AM  
I'm a closet case and even I know that's an IUD. No condom? No problem!

It's not the worst question. And at least it shows he's thinking. Shame him for it and he won't ask important questions.

And a valid question. When my ex got hers we got....a bit frisky before her first cycle & it hadn't yet settled into place.

That was a big ouch on my end.


So, it's a dentata.

anuran: My high school health class was amazingly progressive for its time and would probably have opened the school up to a thousand lawsuits these days. One of the teaching aids was a mobile made of all the IUDs then on the market. Even the scary Dalkon Shield.


I don't think I've ever seen an IUD in person, but I vividly remember the Dalkon Shield from the lawsuits being on the evening news. Along with airplane hijackings and AIDS.

/Yeah, I was one of those kids.

I thought it was a bracelet charm of an IUD.  I didn't realize the new ones were so small.

Notabunny: cameroncrazy1984: Is it a G-Spot?

No, no. There's a picture of it. It actually exists.


The (or a) G-Spot exists, sorta.  It's just in a different spot on every woman, where the internal parts of the clitoris come close to the surface of the vaginal wall.  And some women don't have one.  Some have more than one.  You just knew it had to be complicated.

Antibiotics don't interfere with the IUD like it does with pills. I loved my IUD,I have never had sex without birth control,not ever. I still have two kids.

Mirena with my wife as well. She was terribly stressed that it caused permanent reproductive damage but it wasn't long before that concern of hers was gone. After our discovery it was somewhat incredible how many of her friends shared experiences with placement issues/embedded scares
