I'm new to Livejournal and created an account to specifically join this community.
My Paragard will be coming in soon and my doctor will call to schedule an appointment, I've been super nervous and read stories varying from absolutely loving the IUD to completely loathing it.
I'll start off by saying I'm 19 and have never had any kids (& don't want any soon).
The main reason I'm choosing Paragard is because it does not contain hormones.
BUT, I've read that some people have gained weight from it...
Why is that if it's hormone free?!
Am I just not able to escape weight gain?! :(
I'm already not so thrilled with the spotting and cramps I'll have to deal with the first few months.
