"It’s hassle-free. You don’t have to deal with it for a decade."

After Elsa had her son, her provider recommended the Paragard IUD. She had it inserted postpartum and experienced a little spotting, but that stopped. Now she’s noticed that her periods are lighter than before.
She really likes how easy her IUD is. There’s nothing to remember, no ongoing medical appointments, no shots to get or refills to worry about. It’s just a one-time thing and it’s good for 12 years or until you want to have a baby.
