Cooper IUD


I don’t want to/ can’t take hormonal methods due to some other medications I’m taking . However the copper iud is known to increase pain and cramps during periods and I already feel like I’m dying when I’m on mine. Any thoughts or opinions? So far I’ve just been careful. I’ve never been on birth control before and my ex was infertile so I never had to worry too much. But now that I’m active again I’ve been considering getting on something. Advice and options are appreciated!
