minta:  Yeah, I got my paragard inserted at Planned Parenthood in 2014 because I don’t have insurance and my regular doctor doesn’t do that type of stuff. When I was done, they gave me a little reminder card – it says, “Don’t forget to make your appointment with us to get a new insertion in _____!” The blank is 2026! I think a lot of women just get it replaced 10 years after because they are a bit paranoid about it? But I definitely asked a lot of questions with the doctor and she made it clear it lasts 12 years.

As for taking it out, you just have to diligently remember the year it should be taken out. There is no other reaon to have it taken out unless you actually want to try to conceive (which you can start TTC if it’s taken out pretty much immediately) or if there are other problems going on and want it taken out (like you hate th esid effects or something) or if it has gone out of place (very rarely it can puncture you). To make sure it’s in place, you just feel up there for the soft strings. You are suppose to do that after every period anyways. Sometimes the strings are looped up but if you can still feel that they are in place, that’s not a problem at all.

I have that fear every couple of months. Especially when I was on the implanon I had irregular periods and the mirena right now it’s regular but I’m sure the longer it’s in my body the more irregular the periods. Honestly if i was pregnant I would have an abortion, my fiancé is a 100% for my decision. We don’t want kids if we had kids we would not be happy. I don’t want to have a kid I don’t want if that makes sense. The kid didn’t ask to be put in this world and I feel as though a kid should be wanted.

ive been on the pill for the better part of 7-8 years now. Im not awesome at taking it at the same time everyday but i dont have these panics you guys say you go through every few months. My BC has been working fine for yearsss its really not something i even worry about. 

 

and the pill is the only bc we use.

minta:  I absolutely LOVED my mirena. for me it meant no more periods, PMS or migraines (since they were tied to PMS for me). I’m considering putting myself back on it even though I don’t need to worry about pregnancy anymore. my doctor said I could keep having them placed until menopause!

I agree with the Paragard recs. I had one for 4 years before Darling Husband had his vasectomy and never experienced a scare.

I only use condoms and so far so good. . .

I’m too “small” for the Paraguard and I can’t take hormonal birth control.

Darling Husband got a vasectomy and I still worry about it haha we just avoid penetration when I’m ovulating and so far so good. I’m a worrier by nature, I just don’t want to take any chances!

Worried9887:  lol umm okay?! I hardly call commenting on 2 or 3 posts trolling but, sure keep on using that term. I don’t think it means what you think it does. And Yes, I am so bitter about my first wonderful child, I decided to have another! Don’t be jealous now,sweetheart! 😉

themoonofhislife:  My Fiance would like to be a test subject for that too lol. And yes I get a paranoid about being pregnant at least once every six months to a year. I think more so now that our wedding is close. I just recently got freaked out & my first thought was we have to postpone wedding. I cant be pregnant in my wedding dress. Of course then theres the fact that we just dont want kids!

First suggestion, change your BC pill. There are BC pills which do not have to be taken on the hour every day – e.g., if you take them at 8am every day, you can take them any time within the 12 hr period that follows, until 8pm that day and they are still just as effective. Also remember that you might not get your period while on the pill. Second suggestion, whenever you feel irrational panic about getting pregnant, go to a TTC board to familiarize yourself with the chances of conceiving a child. You will learn that conceiving involves lots of planning and chance – even if you have sex in the 72 hrs during which you can conceive, you only have 25% chance of getting pregnant. Upon this, another 25% of pregnancies result in missed miscarriage (so that you would not even know you were pregnant). For some these are scary numbers – for you, it should be reassuring. I wish I had that information in my 20s when I was on the pill and was also stressing everytime I didn’t get my period.
