IUD is great!
For me, the IUD pros outweight the cons. Pain during insertion is NOT fun (don't know, but I'm pretty sure it is better than giving birth!:). My periods are longer, (7 definate days)and more painful, but good ol ibprofin takes care of the pain. What I love about it (I use Paraguard) is: it is hormone free (birth control pills made me psycho!) My period follows its natural cycle. I tried "natural" family planning in the past, which I recommend every woman should learn despite their BC method, because it tunes you into your body, insight every woman should have (the "oops" factor was too risky for me.) No worries about missing a dose, putting anything on or in, no messes or cleanup, no systemic effects, it lasts almost ten years, but if and when I am ready, I can have it removed and fertility is restored immediately. Boy! I sound like an infomercial! I'm not an IUD saleperson, I swear. I am on my second one, and I swear I tried everything out there before I tried this method, I am just happy to share my "research"! The shot was AWFUL!! Huge weight gain and mood swings, not to mention a nine month period when I got off it! Oh, insurance doesn't cover the cost of an IUD and they are about $450. (again, cheaper than a baby and averages out under $5 per month)
