Options January 29, 2014: #8 - Hacking the Uterus

Take a deep breath, and come along as Andrea prepares for her appointment to get an IUD, or intrauterine device. Though many women describe the insertion process as one of the most painful experiences of their lives, the women who love their IUDs can't say enough about how it's led to an entirely new kind of independence from hormones and hassle.

My mom is 67, last month she had her japanese IUD taken out after 35 years! we've lived in the states since '80.
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:11pm Greg from Bloomfield:

I'll take a seat in the back– I'm here to learn.
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:17pm Andrea:

Hi all! Just got back from the hotel room listening party for Seven Second Delay!
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:22pm Fredericks:

I am feeling sympathy pains.

OOOHHHH YEAHH
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:23pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Zats...I was busy during 7SD. I must check the archives for that.
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:25pm Ange:

If you guys are feeling sympathy pains... just wait until you hear the audio from my appointment for the insertion... It makes me feel like I'm going to pass out just editing it!
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:26pm JakeGould:

Welp, can’t say much. Respect!
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:26pm Ange:

7SD is going to be really funny next week. Andy prank called the front desk a few times!
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:28pm JakeGould:

Which front desk did Andy prank?
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:30pm Ange:

At the Hyatt hotel!
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:32pm JakeGould:

Was Andy spotting?
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:32pm Cheri Pi:

mom's IUD was plastic
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:33pm JakeGould:

The Japanese make high quality plastic goods.
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:37pm Cheri Pi:

Dr Tenrei Ota's plastic IUD popular until the 80's www.contrel.be...
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:39pm Ange:

Cheri - this is amazing! 35 years!
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:42pm Cheri Pi:

her gyno was slapping the forhead!
  Wed. 1/29/14 7:45pm stavros:

this story is so intense
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:48pm cosmic matrix:

wow, words can't describe this learning experience!
  Wed. 1/29/14 7:48pm P-90:

I'm having sympathy pains, this is so painful and sad. These kinds of things never should have happened.

Still, easier than listening to Randy
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:49pm Ange:

Me and this guest worked hard on how we wanted to tell this story. She was so brave, and in the end was glad she told the story.
  Wed. 1/29/14 7:49pm stavros:

brave for sure. great segment
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:52pm cosmic matrix:

oh! my! god!
  Wed. 1/29/14 7:52pm joey:

amazing story. but all I can think of at the same time is Andy B using that voice over and over again saying Scott (Williams') name.
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:53pm Ange:

Ugh, I hate listening to this part. I think it sounds like I might be having sex, but instead I'm feeling intense pain.
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:53pm Callieflower:

This is an amazing show, Andrea
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:55pm cosmic matrix:

WOW
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:56pm cosmic matrix:

for heaven's sake
  Wed. 1/29/14 7:56pm P-90:

I'm sure it was cathartic for her. And these stories should be told, so others who've been through similar know they're not alone, and because it's important to learn the consequences of theses things--the IUD never should have been approved, it was not thoroughly tested, it's a very unnatural, brutal way to manipulate a woman's body, and they were told it was "safe and effective"
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:56pm JakeGould:

Wow.
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:57pm cosmic matrix:

it wasn't just ANY pain, andrea, sounds like a LOT of pain....
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 7:58pm cosmic matrix:

you are brave and bold and awesome, love ya!!
  Wed. 1/29/14 7:58pm j.:

Not as many beautiful women in Hamilton Heights? Wonder what that's code for?
  Wed. 1/29/14 7:59pm P-90:

Very brave, A. Well done.
  Wed. 1/29/14 7:59pm stavros:

great episode
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 8:00pm Ange:

Thanks for sticking with me! I know that was a lot to learn about girl parts and hormones.
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 8:00pm SeanG:

holy moly, that was rough! hope you are feeling better
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 8:02pm Ange:

It took me a day to recover, but I'm so glad I called it off! The pill is fine for me, and I am totally spooked by the IUD now. I recommend it to the brave though!
  Wed. 1/29/14 8:04pm P-90:

I work in a hospital I know about parts. Hearing about the experience was important.
  Wed. 1/29/14 8:15pm 876:

It's nuts that the IUD Wikipedia article does not even mention the potential for pain during insertion.
Avatar Wed. 1/29/14 8:17pm Ange:

It's seriously like the wild west! There are no standards with how Drs do the procedure, or talk about it with their patients.
