Anyone else in love with their IUD?

About six months after the twins were born, I asked the doctor about a more effective BC. I was given the 5 year IUD. I love, love, love it. I am going to have a new one put in next year! Anyone else using IUD for birth control?

  • me me me! I love mine! Only had if for 8 months so far... I have paraguard (last ten years)... still no period pp but, I'm still BF BUT it could be b/c of the IUD too I dunno... only bad thing is I think it's effected my weight a little bit (hard to lose) but, who knows... I could probably eat less/exercise more.
