I believe that's what the copper IUD is called. Have you had it? How have you reacted to it? I have an appointment this week and I'm thinking of getting it. I just want some personal experiences with it.

Check first to see if your insurance covers it. Ours only covers mirena.

Most ppl love it, I got copper toxicity over a slow 2 1/2 years with it. Made my periods like a massacre. Needless to say, it ended up coming out by itself. Thank god. Don't let my review deter you, everyone reacts differently.

i don't have it but a friend of mine does. she loves that it is good for 10-12 years but hates it when it is that time of the month. She told me that she never use to have bad periods until she got it. super heavy bleeding, worst cramps of her life, breakouts from hell all over her body.

I have had it for going on four years. It is nowhere near as awful as Mirena was for me, but it still has it's crappy parts.

 Yes, I had it, and I hated it. Had it for around 8 months before I just took it out. It made my periods hell, and I had infections, no matter what I did, almost every month. After I got it out, I was fine.

Some people do great on it, I did not.

Yes I had one. I got copper toxicity from it in less than 4 months. Had it removed.

It was awful.
