I got an intra-uterine device after the birth of my second daughter. This seemed the perfect solution for me b/c I can't remember the pill, didn't want shots, can't stand the thought of a vaginal ring, and want more kids later on in life. I got the one that is supposed to last for up to ten years. With an IUD, your periods are supposed to be lighter and shorter. Mine are now much heavier, longer, and very painful, I even have cramps when I'm not on my period. Has anyone else had problems w/ an IUD? Are there any suggestions for birth control besides the ones I mentioned above and condoms? I need something pretty effective b/c now is just not the right time for us to have another baby!
