Paragard

Didn't get to post yesterday but I got my paragard inserted. It's only been a day but it's a huge change from the mirena I got after my daughter. Mirena was inserted wrong so I had a ton of issues with it and had it pulled a few days later. So far so good with the paragard. I'm glad I no longer have to worry about the mini pill with taking it the same time daily lol

I got a paragard in the 15th, never had the mirena. How far do they let the strings hang down?

She cut them low she said but I should be able to feel them. I haven't checked yet though.

I hope it works for you! I was allergic to the copper and it irritated me for a year before I finally had had enough with it and got it out.

Spotting or a period? Heavy periods is the norm with it from what I'm told

Will look out for the signs of it. I was told that could happen before I got it.
