I guess based on the lawsuit commercials about mirena I would choose the paraguard.

Lawsuit commercials? If there's lawsuits then why doctors still handing out brochures?

So, I have had both...with my mire a I did not have a period, it did interfere with my nursing, caused me to gain weight like crazy and then when I finally had it removed it took us almost two years to conceive again. In that two years of trying, I had three periods...it really messed my body up. So after that child was born, I had the paragard placed. I had it for four years, never had a serious problem outside of long long long heavy periods (think 7-8 days) lost 106 lbs on purpose only to find out that it shifted and then broke. I am currently 24weeks pregnant with a piece of my IUD still embedded in my uterus. Do your research, both have some serious problems....

I'd get paraguard just because it's hormone free.

Google copper toxicity, this was another thing I noticed this last year before becoming pregnant....there is a class action lawsuit in the motion for Mireya and one in the works for paragard.
