How did you guys talk your doctor into it? I have my yearly today and I want all the good phrases everyone else has used as well as my own!

I hope you're feeling better. I have seen IUC being inserted as a student, and it made me a little queasy so I'm glad it was "a piece of cake" for you.
I currently have Implanon, the second generation Norplant. I loved it at first, but like the previous poster, the hormones have increased my acne and weight gain. Grrrr.
I have a Mirena and so does my friend. I had a little spotting and then my period stopped altogether. She had a lot of breakthrough bleeding, so much she contemplated getting it removed, but now she's back to normal. I takes your body a little bit of time to get used to it. But definitely call your doctor regarding any questions. That's what they're there for.
I would certainly contact the Drs office. It is their job to make sure you know all about what is happening to you and your new IUD.
I looked into getting a IUD as well, but my DR wants me to wait to make sure I don't ever want to have kids (I am currently 26) just incase something goes wrong.

I miss you Dad (I know you'd be proud of me).
I would call the doctor's office and talk to someone there. If if the doc isn't available, a nurse should be able to answer you questions.
I have the traditional copper IUD and I LOVE IT! I've had it for about 3 yrs now and its the best.
The first few months pay attention to your periods, ensuring that if there is excessive cramping, you may be expelling the device. Small % of women can not tolerate an IUD.
The doctor should have helped you 'locate' the threads (which are plastic) and at this time they should be 'pokey' and you can feel them with your fingertips- that way you know its still there after your period is done. Over time, the threads soften and lay flat against your cervix but at that point, the device isnt going anywhere.
My periods returned to normal and I'm very regular w/o the hormones (which is why I chose the Mirena) because we thought they encouraged me to gain weight and have more acne.
At first my doctor was not going to allow me to get it because I had not had a kid. I had a miscarriage but no delivery and they didnt think I was a suitable candidate for it (lack of cervical dilation) and I insisted and finally, got it!

No idea, but I want to see the responses. Good on you for getting your doc to insert one. It didn't hurt at all?

...and I have lots of questions - that I completely forgot to ask my doctor because I was so nervous during the insertion (which ended up being a piece of cake, thank god!). Now, it's been like a day and a half since I had it inserted and I've been bleeding pretty steadily - not a huge amount but a steady flow. I was pretty crampy last night but today not as much although I feel kind of bloated. I guess my question is, is this all normal and how long will I continue to bleed/feel crampy?
