  • 25lbs in a week is really scary are u sure? I mean that is alot of weight. I have mirena and love it no weight gain

  • I have had the Mirena for over a year now and I LOVE it. It can be a little uncomfortable if you are getting a long time after having a baby but it is so worth it. I haven't had a period since I got on it.
    Also, 25 lbs is an alarming amount of weight and my guess is it is not from bc but the IUD is great anyway :-D
