I don’t have the non-hormonal, but I love love love my IUD. Seriously probably the best decision I have ever made about birth control. I got mine put in last December and I got my period for the first time in October (which they say is normal).

I haven’t had any side effects at all. But, again I have the hormonal one.

I LOVE mine.  If you search “IUD” in the search function, you’ll get some good threads.  Basically to sum up my prior responses: hurts going in (take lots of ibuprofen ahead of time), makes periods/cramps worse for 6 months, no other side effects, awesome not to have to think about birth control, awesome to not have nasty hormones, awesome that it lasts for 10 years!

I am on my second Paragard and I love it (the first one ran out of time).  If you want the security of reliable birth control without having to go through sterilization (permanent!), I recommend!  I got a prescription pain pill for insertion, which I also recommend.

just know that with paragard your periords will most likely be much heavier than on the pill. it doesn’t bother me, but i guess it can be bad for some people. also, my sister had an iud and the insertion went fine but it didn’t really “stick” properly. she could feel it poking out and had to get it removed. it wasn’t a big deal but it was a hassle for her
