To me it feels like a normal pap.

Re: IUD removal-does it hurt?

i was scared to death to have mine removed b/c when i had it put in it HURT SOOO BAD!!! i had so many complications with my iud, however, that i had to have it removed. i just sucked it up, took some ibuprofen, and after worrying about it that whole day, having it removed was so simple, i didn't even feel it!!!! you should be fine!!!

Getting it taken out is soooooo much easier than putting it in. It does feel somewhat like a normal pap.

Well I just had mine removed today and it wasnt nearly as bad as I thought! I did feel a little pinch when they pulled it out of my uterus but it was like one strong cramp that lasted 1 second so it was bareable! I have heard that you sometimes get cramps afterwards but I seem to be in the clear no cramps here!!
