Howdy All! I have a 6week old baby girl that I am breastfeeding, I was looking into birthcontrols and was leaning more toward an "IUD" there are two different kinds/types, "ParaGard" or the "Mirena". I am leaning more for the ParaGard It is good up to 10 years (you can take it out at anytime) BUT it has NO hormons..that way it doesnt effect the breast milk.

I was just wondering if any of you out there have experience with the IUDs? Do you preffer it, yes no?

Hope to hear from you =)

I have a paragard now and the only problem that I have had is that the strings are actually wires and sometimes poke me. All that I do is sweep them out of the way. I had a mirena (until it slipped out) and I personally prefer the paragard. The hormones in the mirena effected me emotionally and I got moody from it.

I had paragard placed last July It was very quick in my dr's office. I did have much more bleedin that first month and as the second month started and i got my period again the iud came out along with everything else. It is supposed to be a rare occurance but it is a possibility it could happen to you. It didn't hurt coming out and i couldn't feel it while it was in other than when doing a self check. My husband couldn't feel it either. We are thinking of trying it again. (I became pregnant before getting a new one placed) So after having it in you can get pregnant asap! Hope this helps.
