Thank you so much for asking this question. I'm in a similar situation (getting mine out this summer) and it's so great to see discussions like this! It hurt a lot when it went in, so I was concerned it would hurt going back out again. You ladies have made me feel way better!

I am getting out taken out tomorrow. My husband and will be going over seas once he finishes up his current duty at offutt afb. That is partially why I am getting it out now instead of waiting till we are overseas.

Any other advice for someone getting an iud removed but not ready to get pregnant just yet..

I had the merena in for two yrs. I had bad migranes, back pain, pain in my legd & feet to where i couldnt barely walk,bad acne & my hair fell out so much i have bald spots. I couldnt even function to take care of my children. I had all kinds of test from ekg to ct scans nothing came up. I realized it had to be my iud. I told my doctor & he said the iud doesnt do that. I insisted he remove it. When he did it was painless. It has been two weeks & all my symptoms are gone. The only thing is i had just got over my cycle the day before & the day.after i started it again & it had not stopped
