I had the paragraph iud, and no one told me the side effects or risks. I made an appointment and within the week I went to get it inserted. At the appointment the doctor couldn’t get it in right so she was pulling out and putting it back in until it was right. It was the most painful experience of my life. I had it for 2-3 years inside me and what I experienced was depression, negative thoughts, anxiety, over reacting, bad pms, I was sad all the time and just couldn’t be happy. I would never recommend this to anyone. I got it taken out and that very day I did not once experience any of those terrible things.
