I am strongly considering an IUD. I was leaning toward the Paragard because I liked the idea of "no hormones," but after reading other IUD-related threads, I am a little nervous about the reports of extreme bleeding. I would appreciate hearing from others who have tried either the Paragard or Mirena IUD. If you have or have had a Mirena, did you experience any negative side effects that you attribute to the hormone it releases? TIA!

I felt kind of PMSy and crabby and hormonal for a few weeks after I got my Mirena, kind of like the first month on the pill, but since then I don't feel any s/e, except lighter periods. I had two weeks of heavy bleeding and a few more weeks of spotting before the bleeding normalized.

A friend who had Paragard said she bled every other day for a year.
