Have had paragard for a week and probably getting it removed. We chose paragard with our doctors advice because we aren't sure if we want to get pregnant again and medically I don't need to get pregnant again right away. The procedure to put it in was painless.

I had Paraguard inserted about 6 weeks ago and couldn't be happier. I experienced very little cramping during the first 24 hours after it was inserted. The actual insertion was not painful at all.
