IS Paragard® FOR ME?

Never had kids? Check. Done having kids? Check. Not quite ready to have another? Check. Still nursing? Check. At pretty much every point in your reproductive life cycle, Paragard® could be right for you. It’s effective birth control that you barely have to think about. After your healthcare provider inserts Paragard®, he or she will show you how to do the string check, too.

Since Paragard® is completely hormone free, you will still get your period.

Bleeding or spotting might increase at first, but should decrease after 2–3 months.

Women who want to get pregnant should return to their previous fertility levels once Paragard® is removed by a doctor or healthcare provider.

In rare cases, Paragard® may attach to or go through the uterine wall and cause other problems.
