March 8, 2012 at 8:09 PM

Hi, after I had our two wonderful boys I heard that the cramps would be less after baby but they got worse a year after my last boy. two weeks ago I got the IUD merina put in for less periods and birth control cause we are done. hubby and I have waited to have sex like recomeneded and no tampons and no baths...has everyone else had this no no list? I have also felt more bitchy lately maybe Im just having a few bad days but I feel like crap.  all I want to do is eat also...i feel like a pig. go figure. Im hoping someone has the same problem right out of the gate....oh and i already had my period before the insertion and had bleeding in the begining which i thought was normal and now yesterday I had a flow day...bla

    i was given the ok to have sex the first day, tampons, and baths, just no douching.

    i feel you on the eating all the time and OMG i crave sweets all day every day!!!!!!! i go nuts if i don't have something sweet to snack on all day. i am constantly moody..and having tons of cramps in my lower belly, kinda feels like period cramps at times, but no period in 2 months. i got mine inserted in february 2012....i had sex the first day, only reason they say no sex is because they don't want yoiu to risk getting pregnant, but if you got mirena then it's effected right after inserted!! :D

    good luck!!
