Re: Mirena IUD Side Effects--WEIGHT GAIN

I had the MIRENA fitted about 6weeks ago.
My doctors suggested this due to heavy periods and not being able to take the pill.

Since the Mirena went in - my life has completely changed!
I have gained weight steadily since - approximately 2lbs a week - even though I started dieting 3days after getting it put in!
I have also been suffering severe depression! Yes, I have suffered Depression in the past, but there has been nothing happening in my life to triger a bout of it off again!
Where the bleeding is concerned, I suppose I have been quite lucky compared with others I have read about here. I bled for about an hour after getting the Mirena fitted and that was it. My period came about 4weeks later -and that was bliss (well compared to what Im used to)! The only thing is, like others say, I bleed after sex - which is very annoying and off putting!!!

I am off to the doctors again on Monday, to ask for the Mirena to be taken out - the spotting and bleeding I can just about put up with - but I can not be doing with the weight gain, especially when I AM DIETING!!
