Mirena and weight gain?
Hi I got my mirena anout 6 weeks ago. I choose this because I gain so much weight on pills and I got preg because I would stop the pills to try to lose weight. I always gain 5 or so # with my period and drop it the day I start to bleed, but I havn't dropped the weight and its been two weeks. Plus I'm still working on the 80 # I gained being preg. HELP, I rock climb and do triathalons and extra weight really affects me (mentally and physically).

I did not have any weight gain with the mirena. I have two friends who also did not gain weight with the mirena and one friend who said she had weight gain from mirena, but I don't know if it was that or that her lifestyle changed.

I had Mirena implanted in April, and have since gained 5 pounds as of now. I exercise 3-4 times a week and try to eat healthy, but the weight loss that I was doing so well with before has come to a halt. Although I have fallen off of my diet a bit, it should not have resulted in this gain as I have kept of the exercise and even notched it up here lately. Seems like weight piles on more easily. Also, I think costant water retention plays a large part in the gain. I feel so bloated! I'm still on the fence as to whether or not this thing is going to have to come out!
