Experience

This is awful. If you haven’t been warned about copper toxicity, you need to look into before ever considering this contraception. Joined a Facebook group for women who had severe issues with this copper iud, and some of them have had severe life threatening issues or life long damage to their bodies. Please, please, please, think twice before using this! It is NOT good to have metal in your body!
