I just got the Paragard last Friday and I am terrified of getting pregnant. I picked the Paragard because I prefer to use something non-hormonal since I will be on birth control indefinitely. Anyway, the nurse practitioner who put it in said it's 99% effective but I'm still scared. Anyone get pregnant while it was in place? If not, how long have you have the copper IUD?
Just to reiterate I am talking about the copper IUD, not the Mirena.
