IUD the one for me!
I'd asked my doctor about birth control pills before, but she told me it would not be a good idea for me since I have such a close family member (my mother) that was diagnosed with breast cancer and therefore I was at a higher risk of getting breast cancer.I've had the Paraguard IUD for about a year now. I did a lot of research on it before hand so I could be sure it would work for me. It's worked great for over a year now! I don't have to worry about it and don't feel it at all. I don't worry about remembering to take a pill and also the one IUD will last for YEARS! I'm not saying that I'm completely worry-free even if it is 99.9% effective (that pesky 0.1%), but I do feel a lot better knowing I have the IUD. Also, it allows for spontaneity with my fiance. The drawbacks? Heavier and longer periods (my periods used to last about 6-7 days, now they last about 9-10 days. YUCK!) and of course more intense cramping. The worst part of it is having it inserted. It felt like first day cramping times ten. Even with those drawbacks, I definitely know the IUD is for me! I'm confident (but not overly so) with it's working ability. I highly recommend it!
