'm wondering if anyone here uses the copper iud (not the mirena).. I have a history of blood clots so I cant use any hormonal birth control, I got pregnant using the diaphragm so that one's out, and I hate condoms.. so that pretty much leaves me with the copper iud as about my only choice. I have a 5 month old, and am due in Jan. w/ my 2nd, and I know I dont want another anytime soon!
If you use or have used the copper iud, how did you like it? What were the side effects (if any)? Is insertion/removal painful? How effective is it? Thanks :)
