Hey all! I am 26 years old, no kids, and getting married in 8weeks. Ive been on birth control pills (Kariva, Azurette, then LoLoestrin FE due to migraines) for the last 9 years. I've done a ton of research on the skyla and would really like to try it. My main concern is the time frame between getting it inserted and my wedding/honeymoon. How long did you bleed/spot/not have sex after it was inserted? Is 8 weeks sufficient time to get accustomed to the IUD? Also, how did it affect your sex drive?
I have no experience with the Skyla, but I'll did have the Mirena. I spotted almost every day for the first 3 months, then randomly for another 3 months. My GYN told me to just insert a tampon for about an hour every day to absorb the small amount of bleeding I was having (at the time of day that I noticed spotting) and it worked fine.
However, these new IUD'S are THE most effective non-permanentl birth control on the market today (as effective as getting your tubes tied at 99 9%).
I loved having virtually non-existent periods for the four years I had it!
