BC Question

Posted by on Sep. 14, 2011 at 11:52 PM

I'm looking into different BC options.  I can't take mixed anything because I have bad reactions.  DH really doesn't do good with condoms or pull out method.  I'm on the mini pill now, but taking it at the exact same time every day with a toddler is challenging.  I was on depo for a long time before having DS and it was amazing, but I don't want to go back on it because of bone loss and DH doesn't want the wait if we want another.  I was looking at the Paraguard IUD.  Anyone use it?  Like it?  I have never had an IUD so it seems weird to me.  Any advice would be appreciated.

I have been on Mirena since oct 2009. I havent had any problems except for occasional nausea and headaches. my first period after it was inserted was very light. then spotty for about 5 months and eventually gone. I like it since I dont have to worry about remembering anything. it's good for 5 years. I think most women will have bad reviews about it though.

Yeah, I've heard a ton of bad about Mirena, but not so much about Paraguard.  But I haven't really heard anything about Paraguard :)

Quoting alandou:

I heard paraguard was awesome from a lot of friends. I did depo and have been having problems since I got off of it in March

I was on the Pill, but now nothing because Dh had a vasectomy.

I will probably have the same struggle. I can't take hormonal BC and the idea of a insert creeps me out..lol
We'll probably end up with pull and pray after this baby, lol

I haven't been able to use any hormone birth control, so I have a diaphragm.
