I had the Skyla IUD inserted by my doctor last Thursday, and my body isn’t too thrilled with the new arrangement. I had all these plans to write about “my shit” and how it relates to three-year-long birth control. But, today is the first day that I started to feel human, and felt more inclined […]
First I have to say, whenever I think, write, or utter “IUD,” the lyrics to the song “Fuck the Pain Away” by the inimical and ingenious Peaches surface and crawl into my brain. It’s purely coincidental, and I don’t read huge meaning into it. It’s a clever bit of a refrain.
“IUD SIS, stay in school ’cause it’s the best.”
-Merrill Nisker, aka Peaches
That little earworm, however, does make me a bit feisty. And I’ve been bopping along with this little ditty for several weeks now, because I’m getting an IUD (Skyla to be exact) next week. So yeah, I’m hella feisty.
I expected I’d write a single post: “Hey I Did This IUD Thing and This Is What It Was Like.” But, this single act is tied to too many thoughts, opinions, and emotions. I’m inspired to over-share and blast out some controversy.
I guess consider this a warning? a cliffhanger? a tasty morsel to lead you into the imperceptible depths of the lady cave?
