Do U Prefer Mirena Over Paraguard
Personal choice: The choice of which iud you decide on is very personal. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) lasts for 5 years, releases a small amount of hormones into the uterus, and typically makes periods lighter (half of women will stop periods altogether). The paragard lasts 10 years, has no hormones, and can make periods heavier. They are both very effective at preventing pregnancy. Discuss with your dr. To decide which is best. ...Read more
Can taking natural, organic breast enhancement pills render my IUD (Skyla) ineffective? I don't want to worry about pregnancy at all.
They should not: render it ineffective. I am guessing that you did like my other responses about the breast enhancement pills not being effective. ...Read more
My wife dr installed mirena (levonorgestrel) to prevent uterine cancer. We do not believe in abortion but are ok with birth control. Does mirena (levonorgestrel) cause abortions?
Probably: One mechanism of action for the Mirena (levonorgestrel) (and there are several) is the thinning of the endometrium. That makes the lining of the uterus less receptive to implantation of a fertilized egg. When a conception does occur, most of the time that fertilized egg will not implant and the pregnancy will not be established - this results in the Mirena (levonorgestrel) being an abortifacient at least part of the time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
IUD: Iuds, Mirena (levonorgestrel) and paragard are both safe methods of birth control and once inserted in terms of birth control, you don't have to use protection but they do not protect one against sexually transmitted infections (stds) and condoms should be worn if there's concern for std. ...Read more

I was using Depo-Provera provera (medroxyprogesterone) for 3 years.Then i used birth control pills and the iud.How easy can I get pregnant now?I don't use anything.
I switched from mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD to necon .5/35 did not use back up methods during the switch, chance of pregnancy?
Can I use the paragard iud with my birth control pills? I want to keep my period regulated. Also will it make one another less effective?
Unusual but seems OK: The ParaGard IUD and the contraceptive pills prevent pregnancy by 2 different mechanisms which would seem to complement each other and give you double protection, plus lighter, less painful and perhaps more regular menses ...but at a higher over all cost. I do not believe there is any plausible evidence that this unusual combination should "make one another less effective". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I want to switch to the copper IUD. Had Mirena (levonorgestrel) 3 years ago after my son. It expelled twice. Currently w/ implant, had depo, and pills. What do I do?
Pain/bleeding: Most women who "reject" an iud do it fairly soon after insertion. Light spotting is normal and common for up to 4-6 months after Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud insertion. But if cramping pain and heavy bleeding persist, it could be a sign of "rejection". It's best to call to provider who inserted the iud for guidance. ...Read more
