hey ladies. im thinking of having an IUD put in, the ParaGard -non horomone one. i figured it is the most convenient and best form of birth control for me right now. anyways, i am still trying to lose some of the weight from being preggo a yr ago, so im wondering. for those who have an IUD, did u gain any weight on it?? i know about the bleeding and cramping, but im questioning the weight gaining portion. thanks so much for your in-put!
