I was just curious if any girls here had any experience with IUDs. My girlfriend has been using the ring for a while and I love it, but lately she's been thinking about getting an IUD. I know it's not going in ME, but I just like to know whatsup when it comes to her birth control because it affects me too. I guess there's a type that doesn't use any hormones. She wants that because she says for that one week a month the ring is out she feels so much better. Do any of you really notice that big of a difference with hormones? Just an overall decrease of sex drive or a feeling of just blah when you're on them maybe? I've noticed some changes in our relationship. She's toned down a lot... not nearly as excited or hyper around me and we're not going at it 3 times a day. I just take that as another step in our relationship though. After all we do live together and still have an active sex life. She swears it's the hormones affecting her though.
