Oh IUDidn’t: a haiku

My dear IUD,
No period in two months?
Stop freaking me out

  1. Type (little) a says:

    Sorry Mona. Currently, I’m keeping EPT (and first response and fact plus, etc) in business because I keep forgetting my damn pills.

    One of my friend’s dads was and OB. He told me he once delivered a baby who was holding the IUD in her hand.

    When I had my IUD, I had scary heavy periods from hell. But I had standard copper. If you have the Mirena, I heard that sometimes you skip.

  2. It was almost 3 for me, and then it came, with a vengeance, it did. Such is the wonder of the IUD.

  3. Are you pregnant????

  4. hello insomnia says:

    typelittlea: my forgetfulness is why I chose the IUD in the first place.

    flutter: eep!

    anon: NO.

  5. Yipe! That was a jolt! I went from “NO WAY!!!!” to “Oh…negative. I see.”

  6. Jesus Christ, I’m with Swistle. You about gave me The Big One there.

  7. That’s why I clicked on the comments. I was all, “is that positive? How do you read those damn things again?” I always have to have the box right beside the stick in order to know what I’m looking for.

  8. Chickenbells says:

    Well…it’s good it’s negative, specially since you just made The Big Decision to stick with the one cutie you already have…

    I know someone that was born with the IUD implanted in the top of his head…which leads me to wonder, why if they know you’re pregnant, wouldn’t they take the damned thing OUT of you?!?!?!

  9. @Chickenbells: Holy crap! Implanted on the top of his head? That gave me horrible Learning Channel health special flashbacks and made me cross my legs.

  10. That would drive me insane! No period? Also not pregnant? Not OK.

  11. Mrs. Flinger says:

    Oh, dear god! Don’t do that to a woman!! I’m about to get an IUD this month… :: breathing breathing breathing ::

  12. I have an IUD and almost never have periods anymore. It’s okay – keep breathing. My doctor says it’s normal.

  13. Damn – that confused me a little…I’ve not spent much time with those there pee sticks.

  14. Mamacita Chilena says:

    scary! oh well, what happens happens right…

    My mom was taking the pill when she got pregnant with me so I was like that .01% chance that got through.

    A little brother or sister for Nathan could’ve been the same thing šŸ™‚

  15. Ray & Vic says:

    Ummm my IUD worked for two years…then I found out I was pregnant.

  16. Butrfly Garden says:

    I’ve been on the ring for over two years and you’d think that would give me just a little regularity. But sometimes it comes on Tuesday…Sometimes it comes on Saturday. Once it didn’t come at all. I spent the $20 on the test but wondered if it would come out right. I’m such a moron. Does hormonal birth control mess with stuff like that?

    Anyway. Sorry you had a scare. (And I had to read the comments to make sure, too. I can’t read those things without a lot of direction.)

  17. Oh no — well, okay it’s okay right?

    I have forgotten how to read those thingys!
