2021.10.20 17:37 throwawayketo31 Insertion experience + periods after + menstrual discs
I went to my 6 week (8 week?) post partum appointment and wanted to get the copper IUD inserted. The midwife examined me and determined that my cervix was closed and the only way she could insert the IUD is if she pushed hard and it could possibly perforate my uterus.
She prescribed a 1 time dose of Xanax that I was to take 30 minutes pre-insertion for my next appointment. When I got to the office I took it and by the time I waited to see the midwife and they got my prepped it had time to kick in. I felt a little drunk. I was on the tail end of my period at insertion and breastfeeding. Insertion went well and it was slightly uncomfortable but I wouldn't really say it was super painful. It sort of felt like someone taking a dry q-tip and rubbing my eyeball like not a great sensation but not bad.
Insertion triggered a second period so I started my period again but it was just post insertion bleeding but it lasted for 5 to 7 days. I didn't have a period for many months because I was still breastfeeding and that stopped my cycle.
I started cycling as I started decreasing breastfeeding. The first 4 periods after insertion of the IUD honestly reminded me of post partum bleeding because they were very heavy. I also felt faint for like 1 day during each period. I am keto so I eat a lot of meat (iron) so I may not have been anemic or I may have been anemic. I didn't get any blood work done to confirm one way or the other.
I am currently on my fifth cycle since the insertion of the IUD and it seems very close it my regular cycle as far as blood volume. I don't feel like I am bleeding too heavily which is a relief.
During these cycles, I have been using lumma menstrual discs without any problems despite my midwife not recommending menstrual cups or discs. Based on my own research, discs are safer to use than cups. Although it is a good idea to do a string check after your period to make sure your IUD is okay. After I started using menstrual discs I will never use another period product so I told my midwife I was going to use them anyway and see how it went and so far so good.
Also, I did experience spotting after sex with the IUD but this seemed to clear up after about 1 or 2 months.
If you have any comments or questions you can leave them in the bottom.
Finally, I have mostly pain-free periods so I was really concerned my cramping would be increased by the IUD. I did have cramping for about a week after insertion but after that period I haven't found it's made my periods painful. I might cramp a little bit more than I did previously but it hasn't been that noticable.
I also have a history of chronic yeast infections. Because of the increased discharge from the IUD I think my vagina is staying cleaner or healthier because I haven't gotten a yeast infection. I also found a sensitive skin bar soap and I got a hand held shower head so I can get really clean without irritation. It's hard to say which of these things helped with reducing my yeast infections but it's been a blessing.

2021.10.20 17:37 Lord--Kitchener 18 [M4F] UK/Anywhere. Tally ho! Want to talk or play some games?
Hey! I'm always glad to meet new people so here I am looking for someone to grow a friendship with or maybe more but we'll see how it goes. I'm quite introverted though I wanna stress it doesn't mean I don't want to socialise, just I find it quickly drains me. Anyway, A bit about me cause honestly, I got no clue what else I need to say: I'm 172cm (5'7'' for the yanks), straight, bit old fashioned but considering I love learning about history it sort of makes sense. Can be nerdy in the sense of learning about new things but hey, that's just who I am! I tend to be quiet but I'll put the effort in. Recently started doing a university course, that being police studies with criminal investigation which I'm looking forward to doing more on, find it quite interesting so far.
Now some of my hobbies:

2021.10.20 17:37 backstabber0 The latest CUT youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLbcHBnQEd4
I don't wanna come off insensitive because they are just teenagers, but I feel like these are the types of people who would have the cringe Twitter bios full of like a billion different illnesses and disorders without ever doing any research. At this point, certain words such as political terms and disorders like autism have lost most of their meaning on the internet, everyone just sticks random labels onto themselves to "fit in"and virtue signal to their other internet buddies who do the same. By these standards mentioned in the video, everyone has been depressed at least once in their lifetime, there are only like 5 people in it that actually think before spewing bs childish stuff as their cause for depression, and try to chill on the big old D-word.
Now, I'm sure there are some people in the video who are or have been actually depressed in their life, especially the ones who say they are on antidepressants, but to make it look like almost every high-schooler is depressed because their friend moved on or have too much homework is pretty irresponsible on Cuts part.
TLDR: irresponsible video by cut, people too white need to eat more grass
