I had the Paragard inserted a month ago. I am on my first cycle since insertion and it has been heavier than normal. Which is what to be expected. The first week after Paragard was placed was the worse week by far. I had severe cramping/bloating/weakness and general abdominal discomfort. I called the nurse and she prescribed me ibuprofen 800’s. I suffered through the first week and after that, ... Show Full Comment

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 had the paragard inserted March 1st. I never have had children and was prepared for it to hurt. My doctor had me fill a pill to help soften my cervix. The part that hurt the most was the measuring.

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. Had cramps, nothing I haven't had. Seemed like the more that I moved the better the cramps got. Was kind of po ...
