  • my doctor will not give the copper iud (paragaurd) due to excessive bleeding and cramping experienced by patients. Every one she had put in up to that point she was asked to remove with in 6 months, so she stopped giving them out. The woman I personally know that had them (4 woman) did nothing but bitch about them and tell me not to get them. 1 woman had hers fall out after 7 months. 2 had them removed in under a year and 1 ended up with a hysterectomy (not related to the IUD but due to cervical cancer)
