Had copper iud for only 5 months, it was painful for me. Went to doc every month to check if its in the right place, and it is.. The doc didnt know why im in so much pain (i had sharp pains all the time, period cramps are so much worse and i bleed a lot during periods, sorry if its tmi) finally i decided get it removed and the pain was gone instantly! Guess iud isnt for me then. Hope this helps..

I didn't even know the copper IUD was still available. I thought the dreaded mirena was the only IUD...

I've had it for 2 cycles.
I had it put in under anesthetic didn't notice it at all. Wasn't painful - DH can't feel anything up there or anything 'different'
First AF was very heavy but not really painful - but this was after weaning dd.
Best thing is no crazy hormonal side effects.
Don't know if it's the IUD but my libido is better than what it has been on the pill!

I had my copper iud for 3 years. It was the best contraception ever for me because it gave me no hormonal side effects that othe methods gave me and I never had to think or worry about contraception the whole time. They say your period can be worse with it, mine did change from 5 to 6 days long, but the extra day was so light it did not make a difference to me. I did have to have it inserted and removed under general anaesthetic because I had not had a baby yet. In the beginning, DP could feel the strings when we DTD and I was on top (sorry TMI), but the strings softened after a couple of months and wasn't a problem. I also conceived the first month after having it removed. Don't worry that the current one's will effect fertility, copper IUD's have come a long way since the type in the 60's that did cause problems. After my baby, I'm definitely going to get another.

i also had mine for 3 years.
no problems for me, lengthened my cycle by a couple days, total blood loss was same just stretched out. i had mine in at a family planning clinic, didn't need any painkillers or anaesthesia even though hadn't has a kid. had a few cramps the day it was put in and day it came out.
i agree, its good cos no hormonal side effects and once out you are back to normal and can ttc right away.
