How painful is putting in an IUD?

The insertion of an IUD is not a comfortable procedure. Reports show 70% of those who have not given birth and got an IUD report feeling moderate discomfort. Different studies show up to 77% of respondents reporting moderate to severe pain. At Baxter Medical Center, we approach IUD insertion with compassion and understanding. We encourage patients to take pain reliever before the appointment and always ensure your comfort is maximized.
