Hi, I was just woundering on something.
I cant take any b/c that has hormones becuase of the risk of bloodclots (I had one when I was 19 due to depo and my mom and bro got one too) I wanted and IUD but I am allergic to copper, does anyone know of one that doesnt have hormones and isnt made of copper?

As far as I know there are only 2 types of IUD's. The 10 year copper one and the 5 year with hormones. I've not heard of any other ones. Sorry!!

No, there are 3 approved brands, but 2 of them have hormones, and then of course, the 3rd is the Paragard copper-T.

Hey thanks ladies.
Quote:
Have you talked to your doctor about this? I can’t take birth control pills due to my migraines as that puts me at a higher risk for stroke. I am also very sensitive to hormones, anytime my hormone levels change I get a bad migraine. My OB/GYN told me that I could get the Mirinia (sp?) IUD because the amount to hormone, in it is so minimal. Unlike a pill that has to go a round about way to get to your uterus and ovaries the hormone in the IUD is way less because it is were it needs to be to start with. I would double check with your doctor about this and see if in your case this would be okay or if even the very small amount would cause your body harm

Hope that helps

Thanks, next time I go I am going to ask. The hormone thing scares me but I will def ask. Thanks

i'm on the Mirena IUD and it's Plastic and has a hormone in it, but it only releases a small amount (like 5mg) at a time

The mirena releases 20 mcg each day, the mini-pill I was on released 35 mcg each day. Since I had a negative reaction on the mini-pill, and the dosage in the Mirena is nearly 60% of the dosage of the mini-pill, I decided that it wasn't worth the risk for me. The hormone does enter the blood stream and if you do a search for negative side effects from the hormone in the mirena, you will find quite a few forums dedicated solely to those people who have had negative reactions. Nearly every woman on those boards also had a dr. who said that the Mirena would not be a problem.

20mcg? MICROgrams.. So that must add up to 5mg a year? lol. Hell, I have no idea where I saw 5mg, but I can't remember all that I read about the IUD I'm just glad that I don't remember to have to take a pill and that I won't get pregnant for 5 years!
