I'm wondering how long it took some of you to notice a weight loss after removal? I've had my Mirena out for almost 3 weeks and since then I've gained 5 lbs!! Granted, it's been the holiday season but I was hoping to at least drop a pound or two without trying. I am having my first real period now and I've read that it took some of you a couple of periods to really get back to normal. I'm starting to exercise and eat a little healthier now that Christmas is over so I'm hopeful the scale will start going the other way.
