Different doctors use different methods. Some will give you sedation, others not. the Mirena is inserted into the uterus through a speculum. This will feel similar to a pap smear to you. there may be some cramps afterwards. As long as you are not bleeding too heavily, the first or second day of the period should be fine.

Bedst wishes
