Yes, I had a Progestasert, back in the late 80s/early 90s. It released progesterone.
My first two or three were Copper 7's and I had a Paragard once or twice. I recall that they were contraindicated for me for some reason. maybe it was that they preferred to insert them into women who'd already had babies, or something like that.
I would usually have a new one put in when it was time to remove the old, but then I also started giving my body a rest in between. My periods were always heavy, so none of these made much difference to me in that regard. When we got engaged, my husband had a vasectomy, so I didn't need to get any more IUDs (since we were monogamous).
Now, I don't have to worry anymore, because I've gone through menopause, but if I had to do it again, I'd get an IUD as long as it could stay in for a few years. Too expensive to replace every year.
