Question for IUD users

Just a quick question, if you guys wouldn't mind answering. How many of you had a local anesthetic when you got your IUD inserted? I don't mean the stuff they swab on your cervix, but rather an injected anesthetic.

The practitioner that inserted mine just swabbed with a topical and didn't use anything injected, but when I asked her about it she said some do and some don't. Incidentally, the practitioner I had actually requested was one that does. I experienced a lot of pain (been a week and a half and I am still recovering). So I was wondering how common this actually was. Thanks.

I didn't have either. And then just cramped and spotted for about 10 days.

Re: Question for IUD users

I didn't have any injection with mine...I thought the worst part was when she measured my uterus. But after I expelled my first one, she put a new one in right after she took the first one out and it didn't hurt at all the 2nd time.
