So my husband has ben insisting I get teh Copper T put. How long does it take to get it done? How long is the recovery period? What happens post doing it? Is it painful and worth the effort?
I have it and hate it.
I spot randomly.
Bleed after sex.
Cramp like a BITCH in my lower back constantly.
ya. IUD. Did you go home immediately after you put it or stay for a long time? Was it under anaesthesia? Did it hurt?
Try Mirena instead. I have it and my doctor says it has a lot less side effects than the Paraguard (copper IUD). Paraguard also causes you to miscarry if you become pregnant on it, which I don't particularly agree with. Mirena does more to prevent you from becoming pregnant in the first place. If you do become pregnant on Mirena, in most cases the IUD can be removed and the pregnancy continued if you choose.
My baby is 4 months old now. Can i get it done now or shd I wait? Will it affect my breastfeeding?
Yes you can get it done asap and no it dosent effect BFing.
