i am so sorry for the stress you are going through, but hang tight!!! it will get better as soon as you get that (*#$&()#*&@! out of your body!
I had a paraguard for four years. like you i was SO happy with myself for finding something so natural and non hormone based and safe. wow was i wrong!
long story short, your hair WILL come back, just get that thing out! id bet you have copper toxicity. i tried the zinc and vitamin c to try to counteract it and if youve had it for awhile, it just wont work.
i gained lots of weight on the paraguard, got really just bloaty (looked puffy in the face/lost all shape) lost hair, got all antsy and nervous...it was a mess. didnt put it together for FOUR years.
long story short, my hair is FINE now. it took six full months for it to slowly stop falling, but it did. and as it stopped falling, it started growing back. when i saw all the hairs growing in my hairline i was amazed at how much had fallen!
dont listen to what your gyno says. they will say oh paraguard is fine...its not. take biotin. i take 5 MGS a day...it will help get your hair back in shape.
look at this blog alone, or google copper toxicity and you will be sad at all that you read. write if you have any questions and please get the iud out and hang tight!!! will be the best thing you can do for yourself!
