Paragard IUD ok to get?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I know hormones can affect lichen sclerosus, but the paragard is hormone free... is this ok to get?

i read that steroid creams affect condoms and cause them to thin/break. im not looking for that to happen!

      To be honest, we discuss if we are having sec before I goop up for the night. I am not taking a chance of my husband getting a steroid that is 8000 or is it 9000 x stronger than hydrocortisone on his parts or lips/ in his mouth. I don’t know what it could do to him. After we have sex I clean up in the bathroom, then apply my steroid and moisturizer, then go to bed.

    Hi Always Somethin,

    I have a copper IUD, also known as Paragard. Have you had an IUD before? It has a few pros and cons! Happy to discuss if you need a discussion.

      Thank you for responding to my paragard question!!!!

      I have never had an iud.  I had tried to get one 6 months ago but the dr couldn’t get the sounding device in. So I was thinking about trying it again with my new doctor.
