If you have been an avid reader since nearly our inception, you may have remembered the discussion on "What to Do When Two Is Enough" – the search for the perfect birth control. The Mirena didn’t seem to fit the bill and the search continued. Perhaps you caught the sequel "When Two is Enough, Part II: it ain’t all that." – a brief discussion on the Paragard. It seems we need further experiences of how well the Paraguard has worked for you. Shannon writes:
I’ve been having issues with my IUD and came across your "two is
enough" post from November ’05. I’m curious how the Paraguard worked
out for you. I’ve had mine nearly 6 months and I’m beginning to notice
muscle and joint pain, bloating, stiffness….it’s coming on gradually
but I’m becoming suspicious.
