Tika, 19, IUD

Honestly, I think it’s so worth it.

Tika found the non-hormonal Paragard IUD to be the perfect option for her body. She knows she wants to have kids someday—and she knows now isn’t the right time. Tika felt that the super-effective, long-lasting non-hormonal IUD would be the best way for her to protect against pregnancy. She especially likes that she can set it and forget about it.

Tika’s period did get heavier with her IUD, but she doesn’t mind. To her, the benefits outweigh any side effects.
