  • I've been on it for about 10 months now, since I had my daughter, and I don't seem to be gaining. In fact, I lost weight, but that's just the baby weight that I had gained in pregnancy. I'd like to lose more weight, but I don't exercise or eat right, so it's my fault, not the birth control!

  • Pretty I seemed to have gained a little weight. Not much though.

  • Yes it does.....and that's not the only side effect! I was considering Depo, until they gave me a paper to sign listing all the different side effects. It was like some type of contract. Just my luck, I'd get the worse of them. I got the Mirena instead!
