I had a copper IUD insterted yesterday am sitting here cramping very hard, nobody I know has one, so found your posts whilst looking for some kind of human shared experience, and it had me in tears — in a good way! The insertion process was horrific after I’d underplayed it in my mind so many times (my cervix decided not to play ball and shut down so it took several attempts) The ‘forlon penguin’ is so relateable, not to mention being afraid to toot! It’s only Day 2 for me so I’m hoping it’ll all settle down eventually without my body feeling like there’s an alien interloper in the form of a giant paperclip inside me everytime I move x
