My daughter was born in June of 1992 and I had a paraguard IUD inserted in November 1999. It was inserted during menstruation. I won't lie - it hurt like hell and the cramping felt much like early labor. Which makes sense, since my uterus was contracting to try to dispel the foreign object in it. I am due to have another IUD inserted within the next year or so, and I will do it without any kind of drugs, though. The pain is certainly bearable. Good luck in whatever you decide to do.

PS - Last time, I didn't know the cramping would be so intense and I didn't schedule any time off of work. This time, I'm taking the next day off!

Is that safe?

Thanks for the feedback. I'm sure the pain will be nowhere near as intense as labor or birth, but I really just don't want any pain right now. I know that sounds stupid, I mean who wants pain? It's just we've had several things go wrong, the latest being mastitis with a bad infection which is just now subsiding. It's not debilitating pain, but it gets exhausting to be in pain constantly and I'm just tired of it. The idea of having my cervix pried open by force is not too appealing. So as long as this isn't going to adversely affect my breastmilk or kill me, I'm inclined to say screw it and be their guinea pig. I'll keep thinking about it though and do a little more research. My appointment is not until mid-February, so I have a bit of time to make up my mind.

It's normal after having an IUD inserted. I believe IUD is just as safe or safer as BCP.

For what it's worth, I don't think it's stupid at all.
