I have it. I have nothing but good things to say about it. I love mine. I haven't had any side effects. I bled pretty heavily for a week. I'm breast feeding right now and haven't gotten a period back yet so I don't know if those will be different.

I got mine almost two years ago. I love it. I can't use hormone bc and I'm allergic to latex. I love mine. My period is a little heavier than it was before but I would rather have that then be pregnant.

I had my paraguard taken out on Friday. I had it for just over 4 years. I LOVEd it. Zero side effects. I am not TTC. After I do I will probably get it again! If you have any other specific questions I could probably help

I had it placed in October. It was a bit painful going in because Natalie was a repeat section and my first daughter was an emergency section. It was like placing it in someone who hasn't had kids because my body has never dilated. I had mirena after I had my first daughter and hated it. So far this one has been much better.
