Paragard Woes: Joint Pain, Bloating, Stiffness
If you have been an avid reader since nearly our inception, you may have remembered the discussion on "What to Do When Two Is Enough" - the search for the perfect birth control. The Mirena didn't seem to fit the bill and the search continued. Perhaps you caught the sequel "When Two is Enough, Part II: it ain't all that." - a brief discussion on the Paragard. It seems we need further experiences of how well the Paraguard has worked for you. Shannon writes:
I've been having issues with my IUD and came across your "two is enough" post from November '05. I'm curious how the Paraguard worked out for you. I've had mine nearly 6 months and I'm beginning to notice muscle and joint pain, bloating, stiffness....it's coming on gradually but I'm becoming suspicious.
