  • I have the copper para guard and LOVE IT! No problems so far, and I've had it 4 1/2 years.

  • Had it right after my son was born. Took it out less than a year later. I was having pain and some bleeding. The last straw was when my husband said it poked him. I use nuvaring now.

  • I have my second IUD right now. For both of them- I had spotting on and off for several months- but nothing major. Less than a normal period.

  • I had very little bleeding when I got mine and I was a little bloated the first couple days but that was it. I actually feel better now than I have in a while. Just make sure you do your homework on this, every woman is different and what might work for one might not work so well for another. Good luck.
