I just had a Mona Lisa NT Cu380 inserted on Thursday (yesterday). The doc said to wait 15 days for sex. At least that's what I think she said as my French isn't up to par.

I'm looking now and nowhere do I see that information repeated. In face I see that it's safe to have sex immediately after. So which is right?

Also she wants me to get a sonogram w/in the next week to ensure that it is placed right. Is this standard in the US? Maybe it's just a typical overzealous French Doc? Getting to the appt isn't easy with 2 under 2 so it would be nice to know if a sonogram is imperative.

Thanks,

After I had my mirena inserted I went for a sonogram and it was not placed correctly. I had to go back and they took that one out and replaced it with a new one. It was way more painful the second time, I think because my cervix was still sore from the first time. I waited 2 weeks before dtd, I think, but I have a really sensitive cervix, so some women probably wouldn't need to wait that long.

So, imho, yes it's very important to go for the sonogram. Good luck.

I WISH my doc had done a sonogram for my paraguard, I wonder if the reason I expelled it and had awful periods/cramping was bad placement. I would go for the sonogram, because it could save you a @##$load of hassle and hurt.

Oh, and the fifteen days I've never heard. However, might have to do with discomfort more than medical necessity.

Thanks I'll schedule the sonogram and assuming it looks OK I'll feel like we're OK
