Hi, The paragaurd IUD is an


The paragaurd IUD is an effect form of birth control. It is unlikely that you are pregnant but anything is possible therefore, you should consult with your doctor. Even for the most regular women an odd period can and does occur on occasion. You can always purchase a home pregnancy test to put your mind at ease either way.
