I've been leaning towards a Paraguard, because I don't like hormones, but just found out that it contains nickel. Back when I was 12 or 13 and got my ears pierced, I had a horrible reaction to nickel. So, I'm not sure I want to risk having a reaction to an IUD.

Now I'm totally torn. Do I just go with the Mirena, and hope the hormones don't affect me negatively? Does the Mirena contain nickel as well?? Should I just give up on reversible and go for Essure or Adianna? (DH is sure he doesn't want more... as for me, I know realistically we should be done (I'm almost 42)... but I'm not 100% sure.)
