i got the mirena in may 2010 since then i have not changed my eating habbits or excersicing it has been the same as before. and i have been gaining so much weight. i dot knwo what to do i have started to add more to my walking routing and well my eating is pretty healthy i dont eat fast food or any junk food most og myfood is organic but i dont knwo can the mirena be the cause of it?
I have had mirena for 2 years & have not gained any weight either. But, everybody is different. Weight gain is a side effect with ANY birth control though, but it is less likely with Mirena. Mirena does have some hormones in it, but not nearly as much compared to birth control pills. Also, the hormones stay in your uterus, they don't travel in your blood stream like hormones with the pill does. Some people have sensitive reactions to hormones though, so your weight gain could possibly be from the mirena. If you are in a new relationship though, that could make you gain weight. Studies show that when people are in love, they gain weight. Strange huh? I think it's true though. Whenever any of my friends (including myself) have gotten married, they gained weight! Love + happiness = weight gain...LOL! Fat & happy a true statement.
