    [QUOTE=Jibralta;6792909]Maybe you're thinking of the Mirena?

    ]

    Well they definitely said it will last 5 years so either I've been misinformed or the copper coil has been changed. I read online studies show that last over 20 yrs. I remember being disappointed that it only lasted 5 years when previously it was recommended for ten. Hope they haven't fitted the wrong one! Given my very heavy bleeding and terrible cramps I can't imagine they have as the Mirena is supposed to improve that.

    I have had a lot more side effects with this IUD than I was warned about so that is why I'm researching permanent methods.

    I think the only truly effective permanent sterilization method is to get your tubes tied and a hysterectomy.
    I am open to kids, just not babies. The right guy for me will feel the same.

    There is family history of a need for hysterectomy for all the women on my mother's side so I'm going to be careful what I wish for lol.

    I have the Essure coils and have had no problems. They have been in place for nearly 8 years now.

    I've got the Mirena. I needed the extra hormones. When I got it (2014) I was told that it lasts for 5 years, and the copper one lasted for 12. I'd double check with your gyno to make sure it's not an option to just keep being on an IUD.

    I'm gonna point another poster to this thread to help you. Her name is Fudgie.

    Oh I thought Essure was the titanium implants. I still haven't be able to get hold of the clinic to verify when it runs out, apparently nobody there answers the frikken phone 😡

    I find that crap sex is a side effect of using condoms lol. Plus they are designed for sexual health not contraception. Some studies show that the withdrawal method is more effective with condoms only being 80% effective. I don't like those odds lol
