Gain weight using Mirena

Hi all, I had Mirena for almost 8 months and I gain weight around 10 extra pounds. I am going to talk with my gym and also I am thinking to use HerbaLife. Any advice.

Good thing about Mirena is that stopped my heavy bleeding.

Good luck to everybody.

Hi, I had the mirena inserted in April this year, it was very traumatic for me as it was alot more painful than having a smear test done, after it was all over with I suffered badly with stabbing pains in my tummy, I was in agony, i nearly passed out and felt really unwell, I had to stay at my doctors for nearly 2 hours as I physically could not stand, I took 2 pain killers and waited a while for them to kick in.

I went home eventually and could not even go to collect my children from school I was still in pain, I bled quite heavy for 24 hrs, the next day the pain simmered off and so did the bleeding so i was very happy, how ever the next day the pains came back, I have now had the mirena in 3 months and I have not had a full period, I have spot bled a few times and I still get the sharp stabbing cramps and pains.

I have since been to the doctors about my pains and she sent me for a scan, I found out today that I have cysts on my ovaries.

The only thing I can honestly say good about the mirena is my periods stopped, other than that I wish I had never had it in the first place.
