i just got the paragard about 2 months ago and its been great. a little cramping the first 2 days. i had a very heavy period the first month, but the second one lightened up and im hoping it to get even lighter. as far as i know, copper is not dangerous, unless you have an allergy to copper (wilson's disease). we naturally have copper in our bodies. if youre in a monogomous relationship, i would definitely recommend paragard. i have absolutely nothing to worry about, no pills, no hormonal craziness,.. its awesome
