What were your experiences?  I'm concerned with weight gain, acne, and mood swings.

have Paragard and love it.
there are no hormones  - so no side effects.

No bloating or anything? :) I really am thinking this might be my best bet since it's hormone free.  My biggest problem with Mirena- other than the fact I got pregnant on it after a year of having it- was the bloating and nausea.  I like my flat stomach to stay flat!

I had my paragard removed 2.5 years in. Copper toxicity. Look it up. Since its been removed I feel a ton better. The coil in it was black on removal, shouldn't have been.

Only one I can go on because my body can't handle hormonal birth control is paragard. I love it!
