How to start an (awkward) conversation about my IUD
May 20, 2014 6:36 PM Subscribe
I had an IUD (Mirena) inserted about a month ago. I recently met someone new (yay!), he's great (yay!), and it seems that sexytimes are soon to be had (yay!). I think I need to talk with him about my IUD, though, and I don't know how.

I'm so happy to have started dating someone awesome since my last question
. I've also been experiencing pretty regular spotting in my first weeks on the IUD, as others have discussed
. I think it's a good idea for me to discuss this with my date before we have sex (I'm working on being more open, generally, and I think if the situation were reversed I would want to know), but I'm still learning how to have what feel like really
personal conversations with someone who is still pretty new in my life. Having this conversation is a good idea, right? And can you please help me come up with the words to start this conversation?
