Opinions On Iud

I am considering to get the IUD for birth control, since I am always forgetting to take the pill at the same hour. I even forget a day sometimes. I wanted to know what experiences any of you have or had with the IUD, is it comfortable, can you or your partner feel it during s_x? Is it costly to have it placed? Any opinion is welcome!

Before I got pregnant, I couldn't use any type of hormonal birth control. So a couple years back, my doctor recommended that I get the non-hormonal IUD. It has a copper tubing that makes it virtually impossible to get pregnant and it worked great. My husband didn't feel a thing and we didn't have to worry. I had no side effects such as weight gain or moodiness as you would get with the pill because there are no hormones in it. The only thing is that my doctor also didn't inform me that there is a small risk of infertily. The reason for this is because the device is actually implanted. Upon finding this out I was very upset and had it removed. But just 2 weeks from having it removed... I was pregnant! You will have to make the decision for yourself. While on it though, I LOVED IT! When Josh and I are set and don't want any more kids, I am definitely getting another one implanted.

I just had Mirena inserted 2 months ago. It is the hormonal one and so far I really like it. I had cramping for a few days afte it was inserted and have been spotting for about a month now which the doctor a__sures me is normal. He told me that after about 6 months my period could completely stop. My DH felt the strings at first so I went back and the doctor cut them shorter and he hasn't felt them since. It will depend on your insurance as far as costs go. I only had to pay my copay of $15.
