Paragard- Have you had any problems?

I just had mine put in and was wondering if anyone out there had any problems. What I've read said it may make your bleeding and cramps worse during your period. Has anyone out there experienced this?

  • I have had mine for almost a year now. I cramped pretty bad for the first couple days after insertion, but that was the only pain. My cramps are no different then before. I do flow extremely heavy (soaking a super plus tampon in 1 hour) for the first 2 days and then virutally nothing for 2 more days and that is the extent of my periods.
