I had the Paragard inserted July 14th. In the past week, I've noticed I'm breaking out on my face, and my face is more oily than usual. Before I had the Paragard inserted, I had very clear skin. I use jojoba oil and coconut oil to cleanse and moisturize. I rarely wear makeup, and if I decide to use soap on my face (rare), I use a mild goat's milk soap. Nothing about my "routine" has changed, except for the Paragard.
I chose the Paragard because I didn't want hormonal birth control. Prior to the Paragard, I was not taking any birth control, so I can't attribute the acne to a drop in hormone levels. I guess I was under the false-impression that only hormonal birth control could cause this. A quick Google search revealed lots of women reporting acne after having the Paragard inserted. Bummer.
So, my question is, have any of you experienced this, and if you have, what natural remedies did you use to help it? Were they successful? Even if you haven't experienced this, any general recommendations?
Thanks, ladies. :)
