Before the year limit was up. Example 5 years. Was it because you wanted more kids or because of problems with the IUD??? I have paraguard and have been having bad cramps throughout the month and 2 week long periods.

I had the Mirena and I had it taken out because of the horrible side effects.

Both. We wanted another baby, but I also had it removed a couple months before we were fully ready to begin trying because I was so fed up with the Mirena. I had it in for a little over two years.

How long have you had it? When mine was first inserted I had irritation bleeding for a week then AF came.



ETA: I have paragard as well

I had Mirena and wanted it out less than a year later. It was causing so many issues that it wasn't worth it anymore.

i have the paraguard and love it.. its has no hormones so that is your body doing that.. but i had the mirena taken out due to really bad side effects that i am trying to report to the FDA due to my doctor saying that those where not listed so they are not real. eh.

It was both. I was having trouble with it and because of that decided to have it taken out and try to have more kids.

I was having problems with my paragard, so I got it taken out. I'm allergic to copper ( who would have thought lol) so it was causing all sorts of funky shit.



But longer, heavier and worse cramps are all KNOWN side effects of paragard.

I plan on keeping mine for the full 10 years. The only shitty thing is I have horrible periods. But I think that's more because of my endo.

What were other symptoms or things happen to you? I've had some other problems but didn't think it was related to the IUD. - mostly gastrointestinal issues.

Periods ranging from 10-16 days, cramping to the point of them being debilitating, large clots, reoccurring infections just a bunch of nasty bull shit lol.
