Mirena

I'm due to have the Mirena coil fitted with my next period and I'm wondering how badly it's going to hurt? I've not had a smear test yet (being 23 I'm too young according to the NHS) so I don't have any sort of reference.

I get bad cramps with my period, but I tend to get them in my thigh muscles. Would the pain be comparable to that? I've been told to take some Ibuprofen prior to my fitting to ease the pain, and according to the nurse, fitting the coil with a period means that the cervix is already a little open.

I'm quite scared about the whole thing to be honest!
