cramping

I’ve had ParaGard for over a month; should I be worried if I’ve been having non-stop cramp like stomach pain for over an hour?

Question: I’ve had ParaGard for over a month should I be worried if I’ve been having non-stop cramp like stomach pain for over an hour. It’s never happened since I got it. The only other thing was cramps on my side while having sex. Should I be worried about that?

Answer:  Cramping the first few weeks, even the first few months, is normal after the insertion of any IUD.  If the the pain intensifies or lasts more than 90 days after the IUD was inserted, please contact your medical provider or Family Planning at 440-352-0608 (Painesville) or 440-992-5953 (Ashtabula).
