Serious IUD regret!

Apparently you can get a pretty serious infection when you get an IUD inserted...they didn't tell me about it because they say the risk is fairly low...but now I know why I've been so sick...I was one of the lucky few who get the infection. So a bunch of humiliating tests later to rule out sti's that I already knew I didn't have, a painful antibiotic shot to the hip, another prescription of antibiotics I have to be on for two weeks and possibly a third that I will have to be on and the need to return to the doctor on Saturday (probably to get the IUD removed) I am finally home and super sick. All because of birth control...I think I am over it! Can this day be over already? Ickness!

    I have to go in on Saturday and if I'm not feeling better by then they will put me on another perscription.

    I hope so too. I'm pretty sure I am going to have the IUD removed.

      I know! I was like what? I can't believe they didn't tell me it was a possibility.
