I'm makin a appointment tomorrow to get it inserted .. help?
Not really. They will numb up your arm with a little local injection so you only feel a little stick and a bit of a burn until the local takes effect, or they may just use an anesthetic spray or cream, and you wont feel anything but maybe a bit of pressure or tugging when they insert the device. It may be tender the next few days but ice packs the first 24 hours can help reduce pain and inflammation from the mild trauma to the area from the needle stick. Most women have only mild discomfort. It is not much worse than getting a shot.
