  • No me gusta the IUD. I know that clinically it's a good form of BC, but I know too many people who have had problems with it. I will never use one, that' sfor sure.

    Good luck!

  • I haven't had any problems with the Mirena IUD, but not every woman is the same. You will find a ton of horror stories and not many good ones. Why would people write blogs, etc if they are having a good experience with something. But if they have a bad experience they tell eveyone.

  • IUDs have a long, scary history of PID, infertility, and class action lawsuits.
