Has anyone had a weight gain problem since being on the Mirena IUD?

I was losing my baby weight after my last child and then I started gaining it back again plus more. I kept blaming it on my age that I was having a hard time losing the weight, but recently I am starting to think it might be the Mirena. I thought about when I started gaining the weight and it was right after I got the IUD. I am not eating any different, and weigh almost as much as the end of my pregnancy. Am I crazy or has anyone helse had this problem?

  • I'm still loosing weight. It's slower then it was before. Maybe you just need to change it up.

  • Yes...get it removed! Ugh I hate that thing. I gained 30 has the hormone that it releases and tricks your body into thinking its pregnant. I had it removed 2 months ago and I've lost about 15 lbs
