Hey ladiesI was hoping to get some experience stories about the iud and nexplanon so please feel free to share. Which one do you think is better? I was pretty set on getting an iud after this baby is born but then I read that you can breastfeed while having the nexplanon.I am scared to get an iud because I've never had one before and I feel like the arm implant would hurt less, but at the same time the iud is said to be really effective and have less hormones then the nexplanon. I am stuck
Thank you in advance

With the IUD, it depends on whether you are talking about the Paragard or the Mirena. I had the Paragard put in after I had my first child. It fell out of place, causing excruiciating pain. It was the Non-Hormonal IUD. I have no experience with Mirena.

I have the Nexplanon now, and I love it. It does have it's side effects, but that's all birth control. It is a hormonal birth control and my bleeding has been all over the place, but it's evening out now. I've had it for 7 months. It hurt more having the Nexplanon put in, BUT it wasn't horrible pain. They numb your arm, so it's closer to a pinch. It does bruise a little right after and your arm will be sore for a couple days, but again, not horrible pain.

I personally prefer the Implant over the IUD because even if the Implant were to move around a little, break, bend, etc (it shouldn't but just saying IF it were to) then it would still be effective (it's just as effective as the IUD) because it still releases the hormones through your body.

I have the copper IUD (Paragaurd), hormone free, just copper and I breastfeed. Getting it in wasn't bad but my husband had some complaints at first about it poking. I am satisfied with it.

I had the copper IUD for 5 years and had no complaints. You can breastfeed with both types of IUD. The insertion was 2 pinches, so not really painful. My exH said he could feel the strings but current DH hasn't ever said anything about that.
Mom to 4 girls - age 11 (1/05), 9 year old twins (1/07), 21 months (7/14) and baby BOY is due May 26, 2016.

I had the Nexplanon. It popped out. Hormonal birth control DOES not work for me, any kind seems to make me crazy. I am planning to get the copper IUD after this baby, if we decide to use bc.
