Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

IUD imput

Postby babyhelstrup » Wed Feb 24, 2010 11:06 am

I am thinking of getting an IUD at my 6 wk apt. Trying to decide which one to get. I'v heard that getting one w/o hormones in it is better. But not sure.. Any one have thougths or suggestions... I do need to call my Ins to see which one(s) they cover.

I had Paragard (w/o hormones) before we TTC this baby. I liked it alot except for the periods that were alot longer and heavier than before. This time I will be getting Mirena (with hormones) to take care of the periods. My insurance covered 100%, not even a copay was due, to insert and remove!

I do not like hormonal birth controls so I will also be getting a paragard IUD ... It just fits our lifestyle better.. definetly look at every single one though and see the cons of each one.. Our insurance does not cover the paragard iud but its like $80 to buy it (plus the cost of the dr to put it in and follow ups) but if you have insurance that covers it from what I have researched its worth it!!!

I had the Mirena for 5 years and had no problems with it. My AF slowly got lighter until I didn't have. I stopped having AF by 6 months after it was inserted. I did get pregnant immediately after it was removed, but had a miscarriage. I got pregnant again right after the MC. I O'd 1 week after it was removed and 2 weeks after my miscarriage. My second pregnancy after the miscarriaged was successful and she is now 16 months.

I got the non hormonal one in about two weeks ago and the only downside I see so far is way more bleeding than before. Other than that, it was easy for Dr. putting it in 3 months after delivery, no pain and insurance paid 100%

I had the one with hormones and HATED, HATED it. I bled non stop for three months. Would not ever do it again. Also I felt it the whole time and cramped all the time.

I had paraguard and it was great, never had any issues. NEVER EVER EVER take hormones for birth control!!! Hormones are so sensitive that if you don't already have an issue with them, putting fake ones into your body will just screw up everything! It makes no sense to use a hormonal BC when there are perfectly safe, effective non hormonal options. I had been on the pill for 3 years before realizing that it is so stupid to put unnecessary synthetic hormones in your body (for me they caused depression, inability to lose weight, and LOTS of hair loss, which is still happening now even 3 years after I haven't touched a hormonal BC).

Also, a friend of mine was losing weight every week after she had her baby and then she didn't listen to me and got Mirena (hormonal IUD) instead of the nonhormonal IUD and stopped losing weight for the last 7 months. She had it taken out yesterday.

I will be getting the Mirena as soon as possible after this LO is born, several family members have it and are very pleased with it.

I have had the Mirena for 17 months now and LOVE IT! It was rough in the begining for me but totally worth it now. I bleed off and on for the first 4 months and since then my af's have gotten lighter and lighter each month. My last 2 af's have been <3 of spotting. :jump:

My friend has had the Mirena for 2 years and she only spotted for the first week after it was inserted and hasn't had an af since. It just effects everyone differently. :D

Mirena is progesterone only and should not effect your milk but I would ask this question in the BFing forum though just to be sure.

I BF for a little bit after my Mirena and had no problems. In fact I had a horrible over supply.

I BF'd with Mirena and was fine.

I did have the Mirena taken out today though. I have had horrible problems losing weight and fatigue and the last 2 months I have had really long periods (9 days last month and 10 this month). My OB told me today that only 30% of women are lucky enough to not have AF while on Mirena. info that would have been useful a long time ago. I had it for 1 year and 2.5 months.

I didn't have AF the first 8-9 months but I was also BF'ing.
