Anyone else feel feel they've gained weight because of Mirena coil?

I've gained about a stone since having the Mirena coil fitted 8 months ago.
In the past I've found it pretty easy to lose weight when I felt I needed to, but now NO amount of healthy eating and exercise is shifting this extra weight. I also often feel very bloated and just generally yuck - the extra weight is sapping me of energy and making me bad-tempered! Clothes are tight and uncomfortable etc.

Maybe it's just a coincidence and that it's just I'm getting older and weight is harder to lose...or I'm making excuses...but I just wondered if anyone out there has experienced anything similar? And if they had the coil removed and their weight returned to normal?
