Weight loss after Merina removal

I'm scheduled to have my Merina IUD removed next week.  I am curious how much weight others have lost AFTER removal of their Merina IUD?  If not significant,  I might wait until next year as I have a lot of expenses right now and if weight loss isn't significant, I'll do this next year!  I already work out at the gym 4 to 5 days a week (high-intensity interval training, weights for cardio and resistance, etc) and eat very healthy (whole grains, fresh fruit/veggies, nonfat dairy, etc. etc. lots of water no soda, sugar, candy, etc.)  Can't seem to lose more than 8 to 10 pounds of the 30 I gained after the IUD was placed.

As for me I gained about 20 pounds since I took it out, and it has caused me to have issues with getting prego agian, after having it out for 3 years now. My doctor said that my orig. obgyn placed it in wrong, and it cause ovarian cysts ? and ETC... anyways good luck!

I didn't gain a significant amount when I had mine put in. It was at a postpartum appointment, so I was already heavy with extra baby weight. I didn't really try losing weight while I had it in. A while after I had it removed, I really started working at losing weight and I've lost around 35 lbs, woo hoo! That's no help though, because I don't know if it would have been different had I been trying to lose the weight before the IUD was removed.
