Why I chose an IUD (Part 2)

If you’re just joining me, please read part one on Why I Chose To Get an IUD. This is a continuation.


If you’re joining us for part two, welcome back! Thank you for joining and reading my story thus far. This portion will talk about IUD insertion, what the pain is like during and after, and any side effects I may have in the future.


Why I Chose To Get an IUD (pt.1)

I know that there are going to be some of you that think I just made the worst decision of my life. Some of you may be curious, some of you may not even care. But while I was doing my research for my next form of birth control, my doctor highly recommended that I get on Mirena. You’ll see my reasons later on in this post, as well as why Mirena was right for me.


I understand that not all of you will benefit from Mirena or any other IUD. Not all birth control works for everyone. Just like not all medications work for everyone. It's trial and error, really.


So let me tell you my story, and why I chose to get the IUD over other forms. 

This will be a two-part post. It’s too long to just be one post, so I broke it up into two parts. I hope you read both :)
