So a few weeks ago, I made an appointment to have Mirena implanted (for those of you that don’t know what Mirena/IUDs are…They’re a T shaped bar implanted into your cervix - it’s a 5 yr removable form of birth control, more effective than getting my tubes tied and it’s not permanent! Anyway…) And of course today was the only day available…and it’s his 23rd birthday. When I told him we had to go to the doctors on his birthday, he said “that’s the best birthday present ever!” And there wasn’t an ounce of sarcasm. God, I love him lol.
Anyway, the procedure was pretty quick but definitely not for the weak…very painful! Ultimately because of my migraines I can’t take the pill so this was my alternative option. I did lots of research beforehand and am honestly excited to be in control again.
