Mirena and weight gain/bloating

Hello everyone!

It's been a while since I've posted but here are my issues. I had the IUD inserted in January. Wanted it out immediately, but decided to be patient. 4 months later I was put on birth control pills to control the bleeding because my periods were lasting 3 weeks! After a week of taking the pills I threw them in the trash because all I wanted to do was throw up. Now, I trust my Dr and he was only trying to help me get used to this thing. He told me he would take it out but I told him I'd give it a few more months. Now, here I am a few months later and while the periods are getting better, I feel like a bloated pig! I've gained about 7 pounds in the last 2 weeks, none of my clothes are fitting correctly and all I want to do is eat. I'm definitely not pregnant, I'm pretty fit, am controlling my eating, exercising and doing everything the same as I did before ... and having 2 kids I know I'm not going to have a super model body ... but I feel like I ate an entire box of Go Lean Crunch! BLOATED! So, I think I'm finally going to jump on the bandwagon and get this thing out at my appt next month. So for all of you ladies out there that are gaining weight on this thing ... I believe you! (as well as all of the other symptoms that everyone else is having. :)

Just thought I'd share my experiences and I hope that you all stay well!
