5 Yr IUD...

Does anyone have it, and what are your side affects. Also, has it been hard for you to loose weight after the insertion???? I've had it for about a year, and I eat healthy exercise regularly and still can not loose more than 5 lbs, plus it looks like I'm 3 months preggers...ugh!!! Am I the only one??....
