It is a birth control that is put insider of you. It is good for 5 years. You do not have to worry about make sure to take something every day. That is a good thing for people with a busy life. I have never been good with trying to take pills or anything. You do not have to worry about rushing to the store to get any thing refilled. I have seen a lot of things and people saying that you should not get it in the last 2 years. There are people saying that they have a lot of back pain and head aches with it. The biggest thing is that there have been a lot of cases that the IUD moves. It can get lodged in your tubes and cause a lot of problems. You end up having to have surgery to have it removed and might not ever have kids again. Have you heard of this birth control? Do you have this birth control? What are your thoughts?

I think that there are risks with anything. The best thing to do is to talk with your doctor and figure out the best course of action for you. Everybody is different, and the best option for one person (or even most people) might not be the best option for the next person.

Yeah I got to thinking about that I am thinking that the belly and back pain was not from the IUD it self now. Thinking it was from getting older or something LOL.

How long they last depends on the type, actually. The non-hormonal copper ones can be good for up to 10 years. It didn't work out well for me. I think I had a reaction to the copper, but it left me feeling pretty crummy overall and dealing with a lot of cervical irritation and spotting towards the end.

I did not even look into the 10 year one. Sorry to hear that it did not work out well for you.

I have heard of it, but I wouldn't get it. I do take the pills. I have thought of getting Nexplanon, but I haven't gotten it yet. I'm thinking of getting off the pills when I am 45 anyway.

Yeah I have heard a lot of bad things about it but idk I guess every thing has bad side affects. I have never heard of the nexplanon before.

@Jdaw1985 Nexplanon is an implant in your arm. It's birth control that lasts 3 years.

I think there are certain risk with any medicine or medical device. I use to be on the pill for birth control and alot of people had a lot of problems with those but I never did. If it is something you want it is best for you and your doctor to decide whats best for you and what will work and you may or may not have those side effects. You really just have to take that chance it you want it.

I have heard of this form of birth control. It doesn't work very well and it can be put in wrong. I don't need birth control any longer since I am in my 60's.

@Jdaw1985 ......Part of it is getting older but it shouldn't cause a lot of pain. And, there should be some options.

I've heard this from my mom and married sisters. My siblings also have those injectables but I think my mom wants them to use this IUD. I don't use this. If I'll get married in the future, I'll use the IUD.

Yeah I think that it really depends on the person to be honest with you.

I know many people with it-I am not one of them. The people I know have had more problems with it than without it. No thank you. I don't want to cause unwanted medical problems for myself.

Yeah and I had mine for so long that it might not have even been the IUD it could have been my body.

I think that's the contraceptive we call the coil in the UK, I've never used it myself but a lot of my friends really like it
