Paragard Mamas....how long are your periods? *Update3* its out!

Posted by   + Show Post

Alright Ladies, I had my paragard inserted last April. Coming up on a year of having it. I naturally have a long period, it will last 8-9 days on its own...well my periods on the paragard have been LOOOONG like 3 weeks long. Now I count till I stop spotting too, so I don't know how you ladies count but I spot FOREVER. And then sometimes even when Im ovulating i'll get tinged sticky discharge (which is normally clearish/white) sorry if tmi...but Ive read you normally don't get the super long periods after 6 months of having the iud. So. That being said I'm just curious as to what others have experienced. I'm also still nursing my dd 2-3 times a day, she is going to be 14 months this week. Thoughts?

Ok so i've been doing some research online about herbal contraceptives, from what i've read some women have had success with using it in combination with Rutin.... so i'm going to continue to research.

Update#2 I'm having the iud removed and just doing NFP...i just can't justify keeping something that is causing me to feel like crap.



Update3: its out yay!

Mine looked completely normal when it came out, not gross at all. Same with my sister and hers had been in for years.

Quoting jynkx:

i agree!  im also, cringing at the thought of seeing mine when it finally comes out.  those pix on FB freaked me out.



Quoting Nicolle_09:

If I want to be part of it I can be since I saved mine after removal and its all tarnished and gross. I think the women though that have had it break off inside or puncture through should get first dibs at the suit 

Quoting jynkx:

are in on the law suit?  im not on FB but have been watching them.  if i had mine out i would try to get in on it with them.



Quoting Nicolle_09:

I took mine out after 10 months, got Copper Toxicity from it. My periods naturally before were a week or less, with it they were two weeks plus! and heavy, going through a super tampon and pad at the same time in a couple hours with horrid cramps. 

Since having it out Im back to normal.
