I want to know all - do you like it? Hate it? Reasons? Would you recommend it?

I need some other form of BC than condoms and DH isn't ready to get snipped. I'm not crazy about OCPs.

On another note, anyone's DH snipped? Was it expensive? Did insurance help pay?

My friend has insurance through the state. They paid for her to have her tubes tied and also for her husband to get snipped.

i had the paragaurd IUD for 17 months. i would NOT EVER recommend it. it felt like labor getting the thing in. when i had a period...it was every 18 days and lasted 10-11 days. so i had 1 WEEK a month of no period. and during that period it was not light. i was GUSHING blood. like 2-3 super plus tampons and HOUR. then the pain. it hurt when i bent over, had cramps, had to pee. it moved and stabbed me when i picked anything up or had sex. when i had cramps during my period...i would be balled up on the floor crying it hurt so bad. i would NOT get an IUD ever again.

my exhusband is trying to get a vasectomy and my ex father in law is. insurance would consider it contraceptive and A LOT of insurances dont cover ANY contraceptive procedure. so make sure they cover that and then it should cover it at least part of it.

 dont do it. it is high risk if you do get pregnant, which they say its very unlikely, but i seem to habve been hearing a lot of cases lately where it is happening. Your best bet is to try the good ol pill. lol its a pain in the ass to remember to take, but it works, and it has the least amount of side effects. and fyi, dont do depo.

I voted 'other' I had it put in but had such horrible cramps that she put me on oxycodone and I was still in pain. I got it taken out about 1 1/2 weeks after I had it put in. :P

 

When I talked to my Dr she said that it would be about $900 to get DH snipped. For getting tubes tied it would be $9000 for the old fashioned method and $3000 for Essure.

Well I've been hearing a lot of negatives about the Paraguard. I am scared of hormonal birth control, so that's why it was appealing to me.

Hopefully soon I can talk DH into getting it done..

I have it, but I haven't had enough periods to tell you if I like it or not. I've had 2 periods since I stopped bf'ing almost 6 months ago. They really hurt, but I think that had more to do with the fact that I was so... "backed up" from not having many periods.

I've had it for 11 months. I got it because hormonal bc makes me CRAZY!

Don't know anything about the IUD...But my husband is snipped...Yes insurance helped pay we just had the CoPay and it was under 100 dollars (dont remember the exact amount I would have to ask DH).
