I had Paragard inserted on January 6. I'm single and never had a baby so my doctor said the procedure would be uncomfortable. She was more than right! The pain from intitially measuring my uterus was easily an 8 out of 10 (truly awful!), and inserting the Paragard was a 7 out of 10. I took ibuprofen before and after the procedure. Did fine the rest of the day then the cramping and spottin ... Show Full Comment

One was in my uterus and the other was in my tubes so needless to say that traumatic experience made me re-think my birth control method. I had read about the Paragard and decided to try it since I was advised by my doctor not to get pregnant for at least a year. My ... Show Full Comment
