The only two licensed for use the the US are Mirena and Paragard. Both are plastic, kinda bendy plastic, but not "soft". The paragard has some metal wrappings on it. The Mirena is all plastic.
There are tons more types in other countries.
I loved my IUD, the copper wrapped one. But it did cause heavier bleeding, as I expected with a copper one. For people with heavy periods, I tend to recommend the hormonal one, the Mirena.
After 4 m/c, our is here!
