So I've had my Skyla in for a little over a week and my sex life is extremely different. Sex doesn't feel nearly the same now and honestly kind of hurts. I don't know what this means but I feel like I should have it taken out if this is how my sex life will be from now on. Anyone else have this problem?
I've had mine for 2 years now. It was a little extra tender to have sex for the first few months but it went away. I would wait at least 3 to 4 months for your body to adjust to it before you decide you want to take it out. I had a sonogram after 3 months to check the placement (not sure if you have to get that too,I've heard some doctors don't but I'd want it).
Sometimes if he goes really hard I get a little pain slightly more than I may have before. The only major change to my sex life is my drive, I can get turned on no problem if my fiancé initiates. Before skyla I was the initiator of sex 90% of the time my fiancé is weirdly shy about sex. So that's a little bit of a problem but more for him than me.
I really don't get my period anymore. A little pink spots and some cramps here and there. We also don't need condoms. Saving a fortune on tampons and condoms. I really like it over all I don't have to think about it besides checking the strings here and there.
