About two weeks ago I had a Mirena implanted by planned parenthood. So far I love it. The first day was crampy, pukey painfulness but since then no spotting, little cramping.
Last night, for the first time since I had it inserted, my boyfriend and I got busy with it. All was well and good until afterwards when I cramped up so bad all I could do was lie there and wimper until he brought me some ibuprofen and a heating pad. Today I am totally fine with no pain. I am simply asking for experiences here. I plan on calling my doctor tomorrow, but as it is Sunday, they are not around.
Is this normal? Does it get better as your body gets used to the Mirena. Important to note is that I had the Mirena inserted without ever having been pregnant. It seems like that might matter. I am especially interested in experiences from gals who were not pregnant before they had the “little goalkeeper” inserted. My doctor did mention when she inserted the little measuring rod thing to check the size of my uterus that I was “Just big enough,” If that is important.
