    I felt compelled to write a positive review about my experience with Paragard because there seems to be so many negative ones. I have had the Paragard IUD for about 4 weeks. Placement was uncomfortable, but tolerable. I took 200mg of Motrin before I went in so I'm sure that helped ease some of the discomfort. I can say that there were about 3 different times where I felt a quick pinch. The cra ... Show Full Comment

    I read some of the reviews on paragard and wonder where some of you went to have this inserted. Your doctors must not be to good. I never had any discomfort when having mine inserted.
