    I am 29 and a mother of 1 step mom to 2. Got my IUD inserted 2 weeks ago. The procedure itself wasn't so bad. The best way to describe it is like someone pinching you from the inside of your uterus. Got a little dizzy at the office had to lay for a while and drink some juice.

    I have been on Yaz for two years following my son's birth but I really didn't want to keep up the hormones, especially after the emerging health issues associated with it. I researched and decided that Paragard fit my needs as far as no hormones needed and no daily reminder of where I was in my cycle. I was nervous after reading some reviews ("Oh my gosh, I thought I was going to die ... Show Full Comment

    I would not recomend this to anyone who has not had a kid. Or who is not in a long term realtionship. The best method of birth control when used right is condoms HANDS DOWN but I know that is easier said than done.

    The insertion literally took 5 minutes myself and my OB/GYN talked and laughed the entire time until she clamped my cervix! I gasped, but it was little more than pressure and a prick of pain. Then the insertion occurred I sat up put on my pants and walked out of the office with a smile. On a scale of 1-10(smashed finger-childbirth) I would give it a 4. I have one tattoo on my foot and the ... Show Full Comment
