    HATE paragard
    kirsh1087 posted:
    Im so glad I found this! Im 24 years old, no kids, and have had paragard since April 2010 and started off with the usual bad cramping and heavy periods. It lasted for over a year. I went back to the ob for my check up and she said it was falling out and had to re-put it back in. All my side effects seemed to go away. No more cramping, heavy periods, discharge. But now 2 months later after my check up I have been having extreme panic attacks and anxiety for no reason. I have never had this before, and have had several tests done to see whats going on. I do have low iron and my hair has been falling out much more than usual in the front, and I can see its going bald!! Other than that all my blood work and ultrasounds came back fine. Im definitely going to have the IUD taken out this week. I hope I dont have severe copper poisoning, and hope it clears up all my problems. I literally feel like I have been going crazy and had no idea what could be causing it. To anyone considering it I wouldnt do it. I know other people who have had issues as well, one friend even had it "lost" inside her and couldnt find it to be removed.
    How long did it take most of you to return to normal??? And whats good for detoxing to remove the metals from the body?
