Most men know what an IUD is FOR. They don't know what it looks like, because honestly, it's irrelevant to their lives.

Funny story : I had a friend that was a lesbian until she was 25, when she realized she was actually bi. Hence, for a girl that age, she was quite innocent regarding all things birth-control.
When she got into a stable realationship, she decided to get an IUD. Before going to her ob-gyn, she had to get the device at her pharmacy, and it came in a box that was as long as her forearm. She almost got a panic attack until she realize the actual device was actually much shorter.

talkyournonsense: question_dj: The strings on those things do not feel good on the penis.

If you're hitting the cervix so hard the strings bother you, you're doing it wrong.

Or maybe the dr cut them weird?

I've had IUDs basically since I was 16. Never had anyone complain about the strings.


Once my wife finally got one put in correctly, then the string was poking at me.  I'm pretty averagely endowed. It meant we could only have sex doggy style, which is fun for a bit, but then some variety is nice.

She also bled constantly for a couple months so there wasn't any discussion about fixing the string.

We gave up on it and she's on the pill again.  I wasn't allowed to get snipped because she wants more kids.  Anyway, running off to Mexico and changing my name has gone well.

"Don't worry, you're not that long."


I'm "not that long." Believe I felt a woman's diaphragm, with it being quite solid and uncomfortable. But I also have to consider it was approaching 5:00 a.m., we were quite drunk, and not in the best or most comfortable of locations--on the bleachers of a local HS football stadium, just in front of the press box (her yard abutted the HS campus; I'd gotten high in her yard, years before I knew her and that it was her yard). The sun came up while we were occupied. I sat up to learn there were several joggers circling the track. I've always wondered how long they were there, what they may have seen, and if they'd seen her there before.

seapig: Several of my friends have had bad experiences with IUDs. And almost all of their boyfriends had, at one point or another, felt the device or the little string attached to it while having sex. One friend had it perforate, another had it become embedded, and yet another said it was installed so poorly that she couldn't have sex at all anymore because of the discomfort she AND her boyfriend experienced. Plus doctors don't really provide much pain relief during installation. Manual dilation of a cervix is a thing that happens quite often and is as horrible as you expect it to be. I'm almost glad that my medication makes my periods non-existent UNLESS I'm taking birth control pills cuz I damn sure would never consider using one of these devices.

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.

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.



$3,000 embedded wall? You should have made Mexico pay for it.
