What birth control option gave you the least side effects? I have gained significant weight from mine and although it has had no other negative side effects I’m struggling to lose any weight despite also taking Vyvanse and Wellbutrin!

      The paragard insertion was a bit painful but not too bad. But it will give you heavier periods. I too have never had children. If you have a low tolerance for physical pain you will definitely feel pain but it goes pretty quickly.

      Are you taking birth control to help with your menstrual pain? If so while paragard is highly effective at preventing pregnancy, it make dismenorea worse
