    I originally had the Mirena IUD, but it had made my period completely go away, which caused some serious yeast infections. After changing to Paragard, my period is back--heavy--but thats ok. I like not having to take horomones, they have a bad effect on my sex drive. I'm glad I can keep this one in for 10 years with no worries...

    My daughter has three children at 20 years old. Her Medicaid would not cover a BTL until she's 21 so she went to the clinic to have the IUD inserted. That was seven months ago, she told me today she is pregnant! They removed the IUD and told her she may miscarry or have a child with deformities. Not at all satisfied.

    I've had this IUD for about 3 years now. Overall I was happy with it and haven't had any serious side effects. It did make my periods alot heavier and I get cramps during my period, which I didn't have before this IUD.
