Connecting moms in Polk County, Fla.
I had an IUD and was VERY happy with it. Insertion was a piece of cake, the only "side effect" I had was heavier periods - although friends I've talked to actually had lighter ones and my Dr said it was rare to have heavier. And they weren't AWFUL or longer - just heavier. The only reason I had it removed (after 3 and a half years) is I decided I wanted another baby (silly fool I was, I had 2 more, LOL). I've finally had a tubal, last year - I also was uneasy with Essure and didn't want to have to think about birth control again, even only every 5 years. I had the IUD in Jacksonville so I can't recommend a Dr for one, although I was not at all happy with my Dr down here that did the tubal, although I don't want to put her name on a public board.
