I was with one of my friends today and we were talking about how the mirena made her (and myself) gain weight and then its impossible to lose. I've been working extremely hard and keep gaining or standing still.

I don't want to take it out because I love it. The weight is a problem. A big problem as its leading to other medical problems.

Did you gain weight with it?

I gained maybe 10 or 15lbs that I couldn't shed easily. (If I tried harder, I could - and did - lose them, but they were the 10lbs that came back as soon as I took a week off from exercize.)

I have never used it, but pretty much everyone I know that has used it had the same problem.

I've heard it's a common problem.

I didn't gain any weight from it. I just had a baby though and I'm considering getting another one. Hopefully that doesn't happen to me this time because I already feel fat with baby weight.

I have been on it for four years now and I am around the same weight as when I had it first put in.

I never tried Mirena for exactly this reason. I'm afraid to find out!
