I had the paraguard. Never was I informed about the possibility of breakage on removal. At the 10 year mark, my device fractured on removal. After anxiety filled weeks waiting for authorization from my insurance, I had to have a hysteroscopy surgery to remove the piece. A very traumatic experience after my ob/gyne told me the piece left could travel and move causing damage to other organs. After removal I now experience urine urgency. Who knows what damage was done to my body.
