Weight gain, Brain Fog and Medical Gaslighting: Paragard IUD. Sarah’s Story


I’ve had the paragard IUD for 33 months and the symptoms only worsened. I have insomnia, spotting or bleeding most of the month. I’ve been to a therapist for the first time in my life due to crippling anxiety and depression that wasn’t helped with meds. My periods have always been painful, but they took a turn for the worse. I can’t concentrate, and I’ve gained 30 pounds. Another juicy part is that I’ve had two gynecologists tell me that this is impossible, so I’m really enjoying the gaslighting.
