Hey sorry for the intrusion, but don't want to ask elsewhere.

I'd like my wife to go on non hormonal BC. She is minus a thyroid due to cancer, so I was thinking the copper IUD would be the best choice. Are there more non hormonal methods a woman could use?

Hell no. I don't do surgery and we may want more kids. In her case it's to regulate pregnancy as well as menses.

insertion of an iud isn't the most pleasant experience either. vasectomies can be reversed in most cases for 8 years. why put your wife through more? man up! take on some of the responsibility for birth control and your wife's health.

I do take responsibility, I just pretty much refuse to go under the knife, once let alone twice to reverse it! There are a million options out there, it's just that most of them are available to women.

I'm absolutely terrified of doctors, needles hospitals, etc....I mean deathly and utterly afraid to the point where it looks like a comedy routine.

We do want one more child...my wife would like a little girl. Until then, she needs time to heal from this kid...which is why we're going the BC route.

non-hormonal will not regulate periods and isn't necessarily any healthier or safer than hormonal methods.

Sooo... at long last I've decided to have my Paraguard removed for sure. I have my yearly appointment on Monday, and I'm scheduling the removal then. Hopefully I can get an appointment in a month or so.

I'm leaving a monogamous relationship, and I've decided that the possible side effects, should an infection be incurred, are too much of a risk.

Not to mention my skin is DISGUSTING. I've used tons of different skin washes, and I wash my skin twice every day. NOTHING works, and it's been getting worse and worse. Heads up to ladies considering the Paraguard: it causes acne for sure!

My skin was never this oily until I had the IUD inserted. And my hair is definitely dull.

I'll probably try a low-progesterone pill again. I originally went off the pill I was on before because it caused me to be depressed, so I'm a little scared. But I was also in a very different, much less happy place in life then than I am now, and I was also on an antidepressant, which I believe could have actually been CAUSING the depression rather than treating it. :rolleyes: In any case... I'll try it and see how it goes...

Wow, re-reading this thread makes me realize that it could also potentially be the cause of the inexplicable tiredness that I experience despite very healthy eating, sleeping, and exercising habits!! :rolleyes:

Can some of you who have had an IUD removed brief me on what to expect during and immediately after the removal? It would be much appreciated.

Got it out! It WAS a relief. Definitely hurt a bit for a few minutes during the extraction but I'm glad it's out. Feels too unnatural for me to have a foreign object up in there.

:gop:

:lol:
