I never knew when I ovulated before
I got the Paragard. Now, I have cramps and heavy discharge
, but its literally like water. Sorry that was gross. Still after all this, I would recommend it for anyone who cannot tolerate the hormones in birth control. I had tried every low hormone pill, ring, etc. The Paragard takes some getting used to, but its way better than the hormones and filling prescriptions once a month, etc. I hope this was helpful.
