Experience

I am very happy with my copper IUD. I had my 1st one inserted few weeks after delivery of my first baby. I liked it, because as oppose to “the pill” it had no impact on my skin, libido or weight. Once inserted, I forgot it existed. IUD causes heavier periods, but in my case it is a downside that I accept. When I was ready for another pregnancy I had the IUD removed and there was no waiting period etc. After my second baby I also opted for IUD (no hormones) copper one. It has been 8+ years. I like IUD due to low maintenance and low long-term overall cost.
