Hello ladies,

I am debating of what kind of IUD to get.
Please let me know which do you think is better? Hormone or Copper? and why? Any side effects that you know of?

  • I personally have the Paraguard iud. It lasts for 10 years and you get spotty periods for the first couple of months then they are pretty rare. I also wanted this particular iud because it doesn't mess with your hormones. I had the Depo shot and gained 15 lbs. over a course of 5 months.
