Why consider a hormone-free birth control method?

Hormone-free birth control methods like Paragard:

Won’t prevent your natural menstrual cycle:

Paragard won’t prevent a woman’s natural menstrual cycle each month, but periods may become heavier and longer with spotting in between.

Don’t stop ovulation:

Paragard won’t stop you from ovulating each month.

Are immediately reversible:

Because Paragard doesn’t stop you from ovulating, your ability to get pregnant returns immediately after your healthcare provider removes it.
