Today I had an intra-uterine device (IUD) inserted for the first time.
In the months and weeks leading up to this decision, I was confused and conflicted because of the myriad of chaotic, incomplete, and anecdotal information about the process that is scattered across the internet. While a personal blog is, by definition, anecdotal, I want to provide a well-researched, regularly updated, and (hopefully) well-rounded resource for anyone weighing the pros and cons of all forms of birth control and, in particular, the IUD.
This site will be one part personal experience, one part general information. Facts will be cited, details will be given, and, in the end, I hope this will be a valuable resource for anyone contemplating this decision.
