IUD + Weightlifting Belt = Uterine Cramps

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone! This weekend I used my new Rehband Weightlifting Belt during strongman training, and ran into a women specific problem. I have a Mirena IUD, and sometimes during sex or rugby I would get cramps during impact or pressure. Unfortunately strongman training is no different. My weightlifting belt ended up fitting perfectly, but in doing so squeezed everything internally and I wound up with uterine cramps after a gym session. How do you all handle uterine cramps from a piece of equipment that is necessary to prevent bodily injuries? (I'm looking for weight lifting related cramps advice here.) Secondly, has anyone else with an IUD who lifts and uses a belt experienced this?

Hmm, have you been to see someone about this issue? If these cramps have been going on for more than a few months after insertion I'd have it checked out to see if it's properly aligned. Personally I've never had this kind of issue, but I'm not a lifter and obviously I can't speak for everyone anyway. Still, I don't think this is a side effect that should happen with the Mirena so I'd really recommend getting professional advice.

I'll have to get with my OB/GYN. It's been... *counts* almost 4 years since insertion, and I cramp during the aforementioned activities.
