Welcome.


We know it can be really hard to navigate the complex health struggles
that so many women experience in relation to IUD's.


You are not alone!


We've compiled this list of resources to help you on your healing journey.

Thousands of women are finding each other in support groups based on the fact we all share similar symptoms from these IUD's. Mine was the Copper coil Paragard but many others have the Mirena, Skyla, Liletta and Kyleena. Dr's are ignoring our symptoms. They are telling us it's NOT the IUD.

The IUD: Intrauterine Damage  
Dr Gangemi
"it's not a matter of if a woman will have a problem, it is a matter of when." 

COPPER AND YOUR HEALTH
by Dr. Lawrence Wilson, May 2017
in which he says: 
"Birth control pills and copper IUDs (intra-uterine devices for birth control) . These two birth control methods definitely affect copper metabolism in the body. While some women can handle them, others experience depression, anxiety, personality shifts and many horrible side effects from them, either acute or chronic. This aspect of women’s “sexual revolution” has probably caused more disasters in women’s health than any other. "
