I'm wondering if anyone else has this problem? Period normal length (heavy), but I'm realizing I take ibuprofen for cramps probably 25 out of 30 days of each month. I've had it in for over a year. Previously I had the 5-year Multi-load375 and didn't have problems with cramps this much (still had crampiness but not most days).
I'm don't want to have it removed, First of all--it hurts going in and coming out! Second, I love the 9--more years of worry free birth control. I just had an ultrasound; everything is placed correctly, no abnormalities.
Starting to wonder if all this ibuprofen will hurt me at some point though.
Thoughts? Thanks everyone--Oh, I have not had nor want children and I'm 40. My sister who also has Paraguard says she also gets random cramps throughout the month but not enough to require ibuprofen--she's had four kids though.
p.s. What's the experience with this cervix-softening medication to make insertion less painful--does it work for removal? My doctor never heard of it.
Hi schneiderpants and welcome to Mothering! I haven't had this problem but noticed your post and wanted to bump it up for attention.
Anyone have input to share?
