I'm 24 years old and I have 1 child and I got the paraguard inserted about 8 hours ago. After a somewhat difficult pregnancy and a long labor, I am not quite ready to get pregnant again any time soon. I chose the paraguard because its good for up to 10 years and being that it isn't a hormonal birthcontrol there isn't that whole weight gain side effect. I was really iffy about it ...

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. I recently gave birth to my second child and am still breastfeeding so I have not experienced my first period yet.

I was told that some mild spotting was normal at first... its more like a constant period. Yes it works, but I still have to take pills just to control the bleeding. I would highly recomment the Merina instead of Paraguard!!!

I just had the Paragard IUD inserted about an hour ago and I feel fine! I was totally nervous going into it, and although the procedure was uncomfortable, it was absolutely nothing worse than my regular cramps I get each month (which aren't horrible). Hormones never worked for me, I would get crazy and have insatiable hunger so I'm loving the fact that this doesn't have any hormones. N ... Show Full Comment
