I don’t know if you have children but they don’t recommend it for childless women. It can puncture the uterine wall. The nuvaring I find is a good choice for me because I am very forgetful. I also suffer from migraines so it’s important for me to keep steady hormone levels. I really like the nuvaring, it’s easy to use and you only have to replace it one every month.

I have not had a child and I have an IUD. It was pretty painful the first day and it took me a while to adjust to it, but I haven’t really had any problems since. Apparently it’s better if you plan ahead and take some medicine before and after, I went into ask about it and the crazy nurse just went for it. I still have periods with it but they are very light and my cramps are pretty negligible. I got it because I would be losing my health insurance and therefore unable to afford the pill. Fiance and I have unprotected sex and have had no scares. I have a few friends who have had it (3-5) with no issues.

I had the same problem with the pill, so I decided to get Implanon. If you aren’t familiar with Implanon, it’s an implant that goes under the skin in your arm and prevents pregnany for 3 years and is about as effective as IUD. If you haven’t considered it, you should really look into it as an option.

I posted my experience here http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/implanon-the-arm-implant-birth-control#postform and you can message me if you have more questions.

I have an IUD (paraguard, the copper one, non-hormonal), I haven’t had children, and I love it!  It hurt somewhat going in, maybe a 6 out of 10, but totally worth it for 10 (TEN!!!!) years of maintenance-free birth control.

This thread from earlier this week has a lot of good info: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/iud-experiences.  I posted in there but I’m too tired to repeat it here…
