Hi,I was looking online for a type of bc without hormones. This is a copper IUD and you get it put in and it is effective for 10 years. I haven't heard or seen anything bad about it, except for the insertion (my friend said a family member had a procedure done where they said there would be some menstrual like cramps during it and she said that she was about to scream it hurt so bad.)This is the site if anyone is interested.http://www.paragard.com/index.htmlso yeah, Thanks
