Something I can take before I get it that will lessen the pain or I can't feel if.
It shouldnt be very painful just uncomfortable and mainly just while being placed-there shouldnt be much pain afterwards-maybe some soreness or tenderness but many women feel ok enough to have sex the same evening it is placed but be sure to follow your Dr recommendations about additional protection if needed. Tylenol is best or ask your Dr what to take afterwards. When they are placing it just take slow deep breaths and try to keep your muscles relaxed.
I'd like to know how it went for you? I recently had one put in to help with the pain of endometriosis and I kid you not, it was horrible and I will be heavily medicated when it is removed. I have poor tolerance to pain myself but I am used to chronic pain, this was a very painful experience and it bothers me that so many say it's not a big deal! It hurt so bad I had to lay down for 45 minutes so I wouldn't pass out! They are opening your cervic and if you've had babies recently it's not supposed to be too bad, the Nurse(who let me squeeze her hand throughout the procedure) said it's not like it's been 30 yrs since I had a kid so it should be ok. It's been 14 yrs and I think it is worth warning the patient ahead of time that for some it's easy and others go into a specific kind of shock from having their body minupulated and it can be extremely painful, we deserve that warning. I really hope it was easy for you!
