I had Mirena inserted last September and I think I am going to have it removed. My husband can get snipped. I am sick to death of my doctor telling me that my recent symptoms are not as a result of Mirena. I have gained 20 lbs after I worked so hard to lose almost 50 after the birth of my 3rd child. My hair is falling out like crazy which the makers of Mirena have said is a side effect. I am also experiencing mild depression, lack of sex drive and I just feel irritated. I don't think it is just a coincidence that I have gained all this weight. I love that my period is gone, but not at the cost of my sanity and my stomach getting larger. If there is anyone else who has gained weight, please let me know. I think that Mirena is probably a wonderful BC for some women, but I think that everyone reacts to different medications differently and I am one of them who is reacting in a negative way.
