I’m getting an IUD (Mirena) next Friday. I was feeling excited but a co-worker just freaked me out a little bit with her experience. I’ve never had kids and I haven’t been on any kind of birth control for about 5 years.

Specifically co-worker told me her boyfriend could “feel” it and they couldn’t have sex for a month and it wasn’t normal for three months.

Assuage or worsen my fears? Just tell me your experiences, please.
