Re: Mirena and weight gain?
Omg I've had similar problems!! I would go through bleeding spells then nothing for months! I just feel like condoms aren't good enough.. mainly because that's how my son was conceived.

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.
If I could afford it, I would reserve some of my eggs and then get my tubes tied..
