Omg I am cramping beyond cramping. My labor wasn't even this bad. I never cried or anything during both my labors and I'm close to tears now. Any suggestions on a different birthcontrol? I'm seriously thinking of getting this taken out but need something to replace it and pill isn't an option.

I felt like that with the meriana. With the paragard only thing wrong was the heavy periods and pain during ovulation but come to find out I always have the pain just never really noticed it before the iud

I got it august 4th of last year. It has been wonderful up until about 2months ago. It started with my period being a week almost 2weeks late. i took several tests they all came up negative. So not sure what happened there. I have had the normal slightly heavier periods and a little more cramping but nothing this bad.

Holy moley I was starting to think I was the only one!!!!! I had adverse reactions to ever one I tried.

OP.... I have heard implanon is really great. I had it and had to have it removed but I know of people who love it.

That thing was horrible my poor sister had it surgically removed two times. She got pregnant not long after and now has a beautiful little boy. I wish I could recommend something else but I can't do hormonal bc. Have you tried doing natural family planning ? I do not know much about it but have started looking into it

I love my implanon (I have the upgraded one called the Nexplanon.) And love it. No side effects. Just a spotty day every 3 months. No weight gain.

I have Mirena. I love that little guy. He's kind to me and keeps the sperms at bay. The only issue I had with it was when I very first got it and the strings were too long. The day I got it, I was a little dizzy and lightheaded, but my OB told me that was perfectly fine and a lot of women have it. By the next day, I couldn't even tell it was there.
