I was very nervous. Because
a) I don't like anyone but my husband looking at my lady bits (and to tell the truth I'd rather HE turned the lights off as well)
b) just lately my lady bits have had a rough time and I fully expected more of the same.
But it all went surprisingly well.
(Apart from the speculum, of course -- OMG I'm sure that thing is a junior cousin to medieval thumb screws.)
I had a Pap Smear at the same time, which was more uncomfortable than the IUD going in, and I'm having slight cramps (nothing to worry about) and some light spotting (nothing to worry about).
So -- all in all, not the way I'd CHOOSE to spend a half hour of my time, but I've had worse.
Now I just have to wait for the smear results (with fingers crossed)(more about that
and hope that the IUD does its' magic.
