Hello im stephanie I want to share my experience with the para gaurd iud. June 27 2013 I went in to emergency room suffering with extreme lower abdominal pain. After getting a cat scan they found cyst on both of my ovaries and a very bad infection. The doctor desided to give me antibiotics a few days and then check them agian in hopes that surgery wasnt needed. During this time I sufered from very high fevers were at times I would be shivering badly and then I would be sweating like I was in the shower it was miserable. July 3 I had another cat scan the infected cyst had gotten bigger and I was going to have surgery for a full hysterectomy and my appendix removed.They had a infectious diseaese specialists doctor come in to find out the cause of my infection. They found several bacteria and that they came from the iud. I have to take antibiodics for 3 to six months and see the doctor once a month to do blood testing. I hope we can do something about this kind of thing dont happen to anyone else.

with any birth control, there are risks.

Yes there are risks but My issue was not a common problem and I was never informed of all the issues of them moving or causing infections other then PID. I was also not aware the copper poisioning and it's affects either. These company's that make iuds need to make doctors and patients more aware of the problems with their products. I would have never got a iud if I knew the risks.
