I never had kids and I've had many IUDs without any problems. For over 20 years, that was my birth control method. I don't need them anymore because I am now post-menopausal, but if I still were fertile, I would choose an IUD. I always loved having one, I never had to think about pregnancy. My periods were a little heavier, but I very rarely had cramps (never had PMS either). I was on the pill - my doc agreed with me that I could not be relied upon to remember to take it every day, so it was IUD from my early -20s onward! When my soon-to-be-ex-husband and I were about to be married, he went and had a vasectomy, so that was the only reason I stopped using IUDs (we were monogamous).
The world opens up... when you do.
