I have the paragard IUD (copper, non hormonal), I also read bad experiences about getting it put in so I was really scared & expecting it to hurt really bad but my dr reassured me that she has done this so many times she could do it with her eyes closes & she put numbing stuff in me, Oh! I also took an advil a half hour before going into my appt, I didn't even know she was done putting the IUD in me, it didn't hurt at all. But I guess everyone has different experiences with it. I know I have had mine for at least 6 months but not more than a year, the only problem I had with it was, I got my period for a whole month and a half, I didn't know when it was going to stop but finally it, thank goodness. So I hope I don't have to go through that again. That's the worst that happened to me otherwise, I love it!!!
