IUD Before or After Surgery?



Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

For those who got IUDs, did you do it before or after surgery?

If you did it before, did you gain any weight?

Whoops! Put this in the wrong forum before. This one is much better for this question.

For those who got IUDs, did you do it before or after surgery?

If you did it before, did you gain any weight?

I did it just prior to my VSG. No weight gain. Just like VSG, I’m sorry I didn’t do it sooner

Almost 5 weeks post sleeve to RNY and I just got the arm implant today. My uterus is heart shaped so I can’t get an IUD and stopped absorbing BC pills. Arm aches and I have a hormone headache but I’m praying it works out. I’m having dominant shoulder surgery soon and can not handle period with one arm!

I've had the IUD for 10 years. I never felt it contributed to my weight gain. The extreme weight loss over the last year hasn't caused any problems with it's placement either. I highly advise you to have it placed by a GYN doctor and not a general practice physician though. It's more likely to be improperly placed by a GP than a GYN.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!
