Re: Mirena and weight gain?
I've had to give up & resort to Trojans because I've had sever problems with every sort of hormonal birth control I've ever tried.
I wanted to like the Mirena, but honestly, it just doesn't work for me. It made me gain weight (50lbs in less than a year), have horrible mood swings, have acne like a teenager, and have random spotting/light bleeding spells anywhere from 2 weeks to 3 months apart. I gave up and called to see about getting it removed, only to find out that medicaid wouldn't cover it. So in the end I got so desperate I pulled it out myself.
