"Copper Toxicity" and Vitamin Supplements
My question is: does anyone know if there is any validity to the idea of "copper toxicity," or the copper/zinc balance that I've read about when you have a copper IUD? Most of the information I've come across have just been message boards of women claiming that their copper IUD's caused them copper toxicity (which they claim caused them to be "crazy"), especially when paired with a multivitamin that contains copper. Others have mentioned it can create a copper/zinc imbalance and that zinc supplements are recommended. I kind of figure all of this is invalid/people blaming everything under the sun on their IUD, but this seems to be a great community, so I thought I'd see if anyone had any experiences or read any actual valid evidence on this? I do take a multivitamin that contains copper, so I guess I'm just wondering if I should consider switching.
On the topic -- I've also heard that Vitamin E can help alleviate the increased bleeding that's common with Paragard owners. Has anyone tried this?
Sorry if these answers are elsewhere!
