My first three months on Paragard were difficult to say the least. I was in quite a bit of pain, had a lot of bleeding and generally was not a happy camper. I wasn't prepared to give up though as I had heard that it could take a while... and the experience of getting it implanted was one that still has me not wanting to repeat it to have it removed if I can help it. I don't want to dissuade someone from getting it as I think it a good option for a lot of people but I also think that it is important for people to be able to make a fully informed decision and do not think that I was well informed on how much pain and discomfort I would be in for over the next few months. I still plan on doing a 6 or 9 month update and a 1 year in update over the next few months as things did get better eventually.
Until next time,
