Even That I had this IUD for 9 years and did not get pregnant, I do not recomend it to anyone that is planing to have a family.I have been married for years already and could not take the IUD out until this week after paying a big amount of money and had it surgically removed, because it losted the string and nobody could find it. I been wanting to have family for years, but because of all of this pluss the money issue could not happen.It caused me a lot of pain during intimacy, also when I was with or without the period, a lot of tears and hard times, and if I am not mistaken it also caused me to have surgery 5 years ago to remove a part of my uterus because of an abnormal papsmear.I have also known that it is a cause of abortion, since most of the time the sperm reaches the egg and the IUD kills the embrion and feels like it is the period, but its not," it kills".This is completelly against God, when he said " do not kill", and I found out about it to late.You may have taken already the decision but it is never to late to take it back. I really had a bad experience, even that it does not happen to everybody but there is always the posibility of even worse results.Plan your life and put it in God's hands,don't do something you will regret later as I did. There are another methods as the Ritm ( protection needed(condom) from the 1st day of your period until the 16th day, then normal until the next period ), it may sound dificult but it works, and even more if you don't want to have any abnormal situations in the future.View Thread
