Scared to Death of the IUD

As big as my pinky... scares me to death

I never thought the day would come where I would actually admit I was scared of something. I was supposed to have my IUD placed in the middle of September, but unfortunately life changed those plans with my sister being ill, and then passing.

Needless to say, I find myself scared to death to call and re-schedule my appointment.  Something about having it placed to begin with scares me to death, even after having three c-sections, surgery on my cervix and a plethora of kidney stone procedures.

I just don’t want someone stabbing that thing into my uterus. As horrible as it sounds it is not something I feel like going through no matter how easy or simple people keep explaining it is. I am starting to think about alternative forms of birth control besides the IUD.

I like the fact that the IUD lasts five years. Hell I am sure in five years I will be on the sign me up for a tubal list, but I just didn’t want to do anything forever when Addison was born.

I have done the pill since my postpartum check up with no issues, and I am sure breastfeeding is helping as well since I still have yet to get my friend back as well. I am just trying to figure out with breastfeeding which is best. Should I continue the mini pill? Should I opt for the depo shot? Is that nuvaring thing worth even mentioning?

Maybe some of the breastfeeding moms who depend on their birth control can help me out because I am in need of some advice!
