I had the paraguard before kids. I had had painful cramping since puberty, but short periods. The paraguard did not make the cramping worse for me. And my period was lengthened maybe half a day--still a short period. No side effects.
After I stopped using disposable products (between kids), I stopped having painful periods. I might be getting another paraguard after this baby, so I'm curious to see if it will still be side-effect-free for me.
