I'm thinking about getting paragard,( I had the shot and the hormones were terrible and I had Bacterial Vaginitis, yeast infection, and uti all in the 3 months it's effective and my period didn't stop for like 3 more months after it wore off ) so I guess I'm pretty prone to them. I have a great pain tolerance and my period usually last 10 days anyways so that's the least of my worries. I really need a birth control with no hormones since my body is so sensitive so I'm thinking about getting this but if I'm going to constantly be getting yeast and BVs that's the only thing stopping me
