I had Kyleena put in 5 days ago, so far I have on and off spotted bleeding and cramping that's kind of intense. I also felt nauseous for the first time this morning, is that normal? I decided to read other women's thoughts to see if what I was feeling was normal and how other women liked it and most of them do. But of course all women are different, I have 3 children and I don't want anymore, the pill has never worked for me so I'm hoping this does. My doctor told me to wait 2 weeks before I had sex but I'm scared that when I do it will move (one woman said that in her review). She said that she had very painful cramping for 10 minutes, my girlfriend also said hers moved, without having sex and the pain was excruciating. I'm very scared to have sex now once I'm allowed. How likely is it that it'll move once I have sex and how bad will the pain possibly be?
Kyleena is a hormone-releasing IUD (intrauterine device) that rests inside the uterus after being placed by a doctor. It prevents pregnancy for up to 5 years. After insertion, about 4 to 6 weeks later, you should return to the doctor to make sure that it is still in the right position, and has not shifted.
You can check that Kyleena is in the proper position by feeling the removal threads. Your doctor can tell you how. You check by reaching up to the top of your vagina with clean fingers to feel the removal threads. Do not pull on the threads. If you feel more than just the threads or if you cannot feel the threads, Kyleena may not be in the right position.
