I got the paragaurd put in 6 weeks after I had my lo and love it so far. It was a little painful going in but no side effects or down sides as of yet.  I love not having it think about BC.

I had the mirena for 6 months and it was horrible.  My body kept attacking the strings. So I had a yeast infection the intire time I had it,  even though my drs kept saying that it wasn't causing them. As soon as it was out, wudda you know I was yeast free. I am done with any bc. After I have my second  baby in March, my hubby is getting snipped lol.
