I am seeing the OBGYN today and going to discuss with him birth control. I want something that doesn't release a lot of hormones, they make me hold on to weight and cause my boobs to hurt constantly. I also want something that lasts a while. I thought of the IUD or Paraguard and I wanted to hear experiences. I have heard about the one they put in the arm, but that one gives off hormones and I don't want that. We are just using condoms right now and I don't feel safe with those. I don't want another baby for at least 3 or 4 years. Any suggestions/experiences?? Thanks!
Also, I have a metal allergy to cheap metals, would that affect the IUD?
EDIT: The thing that he told me with the paraguard is that he has had some moms get pregnant on it because it falls out and they don't notice. So I opted out. Now I am having migranes (which I NEVER have!) from the birth control pills, so I am wishing I would have looked into paraguard more. The doc also said some woman have horrible cramping with the paraguard. I don't know... I'm wishing I would have looked into it more.
