Know anything about a "shriveled cervix" iud insertion ?

K so I went to my ob twice and he could not place an iud. He tried. Finally gave up. He said maybe later. I was eight weeks and nursing.
So I went to snother ob who tried, really hard, and he said I had a cervix of a 50 year old, high and shriveled. Still breastfeeding then, 4 months pp.

So I'm wondering if when he weans, will I be able to have an iud. Can't take hormones dt blood clotting and dh will NOT get a V. I'm kind of at a loss. I don't want progesterone bc I'm terrified of wt gain.

Any thoughts??

aww I have never heard of that, I'm sorry
I don't know what else you could do.
My DH and I rely on condoms- when used properly they are VERY effective. We love it- protected from pregnancy and the mess is contained! lol

Another dh won't! errr...
I wish I knew if breastfeeding caused this and it would return to normal later.

Also, I think that the new recommendations for putting in an iud is twelve weeks post partum. They are showing that waiting longer reduces your chances of perforation. Maybe you can wait another month or two to try to put one in. Also, breastfeeding is a contraindication of inserting an iud, it also increases the risk of perforation.
