  • The paraguard has no hormones and therefore does not affect mood. Mirena has a small dose of hormones, but I do not know whether it has an affect on mood, I have the paraguard, b/c I didn't want to take the chance. I have a horrible time with pills and shots (only took the pills for 1 week, couldn't do it any longer, I was to scared to try shots!!)

  • Also, I did have moderate cramping for the first 6 months around AF, but not constantly. I had mild cramping from about 6 months to 1 year. I now have very very mild cramping only around AF, but they are not any worse than they were before I had the IUD. Other than that I do not feel it at all, and no, hubby does not feel it either.
