  • Yes I gained 15 on depo...but honestly I never was going to take the pill on time so it was best for me. I'm not for the IUD.

  • Yes. I had the Mirena IUD and gained 30lbs (along with countless other side effects)..and I couldn't lose any of it no matter how hard I tried. I switched to the Paragard IUD (non-hormonal) in June and have lost 10+ pounds so far. I feel amazing now.
