Discussions that mention valium

Birth Control board


I feel like I am playing a game of russian roulette with my periods. I have been having problems since June. I got everything from a 30 day period, heavy periods, periods every 2 weeks, and long. It's been very nerve racking to say the least.

I have a cyst on the right ovary and I have made the decision to have an Mirena put in. I scheduled the IUD for this Thursday because I didn't want to have to deal with the heavy bleeding during the insertion. Well, I guess I should have known better. It came again this morning. I am so tired of getting a period every 2 weeks.

Now, I get to deal with another period on top of having an IUD put in. Not what I call fun.

The good thing is that I will be taking valium and either advil or vicodin before I go in. I am leaning towards the vicodin because I don't handle pain well. I am waiting to hear what my dr wants me to take.

Hi Caliente,

I am hoping it will be easier. I guess it is just embarassing to go in on a full-fledge period. I have very heavy periods for the first 4-5 days. Which means that the route that I am going, chances are it will be heavy on Thursday.

The good thing is that the dr is wanting me to take 5 mg of valium, vicodin and 4 advil (800 mg). Hopefully, with this combination I won't care. I am just not looking forward to the pain. I have been dealing with nasty cramps the past 3 days.

I am looking forward to my periods hopefully stopping. The route that I am going, I should just buy stock in pads.
