No, I never have.

I had it inserted last October, and haven't had any issues with it. 

I'm not fond of having my period every month again since I had been using the Depo shot, but I like not having the migraines that I started getting after my DS was born.

I got one a few months ago. I was really unsure about it as well. I'd heard so many horror stories.

Personally, the cramping I had after it was inserted is probably the only cramping I've had. I don't have an abnormally heavy flow or anything like that. It's about normal with a few ligher days at the beginning and a couple heavy-ish ones in the middle. Nothing bad at all though. I do hate that I went from having a 5 day period to about 8...that's the only real bad thing I have to say about it.

Yes I've read that, but just like any birth control everyone reacts different. Also The think is no one bothers to care to research things anymore. (people in general) They just assume they will listen to their doctor. Yes the doctor should disclose this info but some don't. I've had both iuds and I love the paraguard. For me it's a great method to prevent unwanted pregnancies .

Yah. But it has a higher rate with iuds

You do realized all BC can make you sterile

Quoting EthansMomma2010:

Pleaae do not use an iud of any kind. They are very unsafe and the manufacturers refuse to admit just how much fertility and other problems they cause.
