  • The hormones in the Mirena IUD are localized. They don't go through your blood stream. So, they wouldn't make you fat. I think it's what you eat. I wish my IUD would make me skinny. That's what I need.

  • NO. My doctor told me its one birthcontrol that won't make you gain weight.

  • I had a Minera IUD put in at my 6 week post-baby appointment. At the time I was using the Cinch Inch Loss Plan to lose weight. The weight kept coming off after the appointment. I ended up shedding approx. 25 lbs. Send me a mesage if you would like more info.
    Have a wonderful day!
