Can the paraguard be inserted during my menstrual period?

Yes: In fact it is very common to insert the paragaurd during your period . The cervical opening is slightly dilated. The paraguard almost always can be inserted without dilating the cervix, causing only craming with insertion, i almost always insert it during this time, with very few problems.
