Hello. I have no children and have been told my cervix is small (so I assume my uterus might be too?). I am contemplating getting a Mirena IUD. I also heard that my cervix tilts very slightly to one side. Has anyone been able to have an IUD inserted successfully in these conditions? Thank you.

    The IUD itself is very small too, I’m sure if you talk with the physician they’ll let you know what’s right for you.

    Hey again-

    When you go in, they will sound your uterus to see how big it is and if a IUD will comfortably fit. Small cervix does not necessarily mean small uterus and vice versa. In the end, a small cervix won’t really be detrimental to an insertion; your doctor can give you drugs to soften your cervix. If a baby can get through, an IUD can! A lot of people have tilted cervixes and/or uteruses and have successfully had an IUD placed (I think a few of them replied to your post in IUD_Divas a few days ago!). Unfortunately, you can’t really know whether an IUD is good for you until you speak with your doctor and get sounded.

    I was told my entire cervix/uterus was “tilted” towards the back of my body in some kind of funky way, but this didn’t cause any problem with my Mirena insertion. Woo-hoo, Mirena! I loves mine soooo much.

    I had the Mirena IUD inserted just 30 minutes ago. She measured mine first and said that the cervix (was like a “pinprick” – whatever that means). At any rate, she had to manually dilate the cervix quite a bit to get the sucker in there. The dilation process was painful, but the actual insertion was not. I also have not had children, but if I had then the process would have been a lot easier. I have a feeling the pain in the ass is going to be worth it, though. 🙂
