I got mine at my 6 week checkup.. I was recovering from a gallbladder surgery though, so we waited a few more weeks after that. Yes, there was slight cramping at first, but nothing intolerable.. it eventually went away with time.

Do you have really bad periods because of it?

I got my para guard like 2 1/2 months ago.  I had one put in during my period, went in for my 2 weeks ultrasound to check position and it was too low.  My midwife took that one out and put another one in and had me come back in 1 week to check position.  That time it was good.  I had sex right away after that ultrasound.  I didn't have any cramping or anything.  I had a lot of discharge, enough to require a pantyliner.  My midwife said it was normal.  The first period was pretty normal but the next was SUPER HEAVY and more cramping than I have had since I was in high school.  Not horrible but enough to be annoying and require motrin.

I don't NOW.. but for the first few months it was pretty bad. It made my cramping a LOT worse than usual. After the first 4 months or so though, I didn't have anymore problems with it. I've now had it for 4.5 years and I'm still loving it :)

I've had my paraguard since last summer, I've had heavy periods and cramping, the bleeding is getting better as well as the cramping, but its def worth it

 I think we had sex right away like within days of me getting it.  The doctor told us to have sex to make sure it is placed good.  I like mine except for the periods.  I seem to be a bit more crampy and my periods are SOOOOOOOO HEAVY now and longer lasting.  Maybe tmi but I honestly have to use a super plus tampon and still wear a pad because I will bleed through it quicker than I ever used to.
