Insertion of IUD
The IUD is easily inserted in the Rooms on an outpatient basis. Usually performed without the need for anaesthesia, it takes only a few minutes to perform. There is a short degree of discomfort at the time of insertion. One can also experience some cramping pain for 24 hours post insertion. Usually this can be alleviated by the use of simple pain relief like Panadol or anti inflammatory medications like neurofen. Some bleeding may also present. Usually lasting only a few days, with the Mirena the bleeding may extend for many months. However, it is not expected that there be severe pain or bleeding. Similarly should there be an offensive vaginal discharge or fever, infection will need to be excluded. Medical attention should be sought if this happens.
