    Default When should I worry? (Personal, possible TMI)

    So I had the Paragard IUD put in on Thursday. I've had some bleeding, very mild and I'm only using a liner, and some cramping, also mild, over the weekend.

    Well about an hour ago I started cramping really, really bad. It hurts so much I feel nauseated. It's worse than any AF cramping I've ever had. I took some Tylenol and it did nothing. My bodily functions are all perfectly normal and I've no constipation or anything so it can't be that. I just broke down and took my last pain pill I had left over because I can't take the pain. The problem is that I am home alone with both kids and I don't know if it's something that really needs to be seen to or if it will go away.

    I didn't get AF back until 6 months PP after Lyla, so I don't think it's that. I am exclusively breastfeeding.

    What do you think?

    I think you should call your OB. Its been less than a week but your cramps should be getting better not worse. Have you checked your strings?

    No. I don't know that I know how. Do I just reach in there and see if I can feel strings?

    Yea, they're more of a wire feel. You'll notice them if you check your cervix. But I agree with Erin, call OB.

    They didn't tell you how to check your strings? Yeesh! Yeah, just reach up in there. It should feel like stiff dental floss.

    I had to check my own strings before my OB would let me leave when I had my IUD put in.

    I hope you're feeling better and have an answer as to what is going on.

    I have no advice, I've never had an IUD. I do hope you are not hurting as bad. Sending hugs your way.

    Anna, I would call your OB & see what they say. Feel better, and KUP!

    I remember that I got some semi-bad cramping a 2 or 3 days after I got my IUD in, but nothing worse than normal bad AF cramps. I also bleed moderately for a week or so and then lightly off and on for almost a month before it finally let up.

    There is a big range of what can be normal. If it is extremely painful, then I would call your doc. I know that the chance of perforation is rare, but it is still there. I hope it's nothing though and that you're feeling better soon!
