Paragard! 5 months later.

Hi everybody! I posted on here a few months ago about my new Paragard.

It's now been 5 months since I've had it and I'm still very relatively happy with it. I do get some pretty severe cramping pain at times, but it doesn't last long, and I've learned to use this to tell when my period is coming.(since I am kind of irregular. It comes every month but sometimes a week or two late)

My periods are super heavy and about 7 days long but it hasn't hindered me at all because I was used to having heavy periods for a week even before Paragard.

My strings seem to come and go. Sometimes I can feel them myself, and sometimes I can't feel them. My partner says he isn't able to feel them anymore because he thinks they have softened, which is possible.

Life is wonderful with the Paragard and it is a small price to pay to enjoy life without fear of pregnancy!
