copper IUD

Posted by: brochiepoo on Wed Jul 11, 2007

I'm 22 and have had the copper IUD (Paraguard) for a year now and I love it!!

Pros: There are no hormones, it lasts up to a decade and it's low maintenance... No pills to take or products to remember to change or insert.

Cons: My periods are a little longer and heavier, but that's it.

Also, getting it inserted wasn't as bad as everyone says. I felt a little cramping but it didn't hurt. And as soon as I decide, I can have it removed by my doctor.
