I Have the paraguard iud, why am I freaking out about pregnancy when my boyfriend and I hugged while naked?

I Have the paraguard iud, why am I freaking out about pregnancy when my boyfriend and I hugged while naked?

Anxiety: You are "freaking out" due to anxiety over having an unplanned pregnancy. Although the left half of your brain which is associated with logic "knows" that you can't get pregnant, the right half of your brain (creative/artistic side) is thinking, "What if?"

Can the paraguard IUD cause endometrial lining to thicken?

Can the paraguard IUD cause endometrial lining to thicken?

Can paragard IUD cause hair loss? I have not had a baby, surgery, not a thyroid or a anaemia problem.  My only change has been an iud. Its not genetic.

IUDs: I have seen online complaints of hair loss with iuds, but usually with hormonal iuds like mirena (levonorgestrel). Its not a listed side effect with paragard. You might want to see a dermatologist and ask if there are other causes of your loss or if it could be an odd copper allergy side effect. ...Read more

No relationship: Iud's do not cause headaches or migraines. Tough to treat migraine hormonally, but perhaps a preventative medication will stop the headaches. Work out a plan with your neurologist. ...Read more
