I may be paranoid but I have had this coil fitted for 3 months now and I swear j am gaining weight rapidly when my diet has basically changed. DD confirms i am not eating ang more than usual...Am I being paranoid? Has anyone else gained weight and lost it when it as removed?

lol all I'm saying is be careful I have the coil in and I recently found out I'm pregnant!!!

But haven't put on any weight since I have had it in.

I always wondered if it contributed to weight gain.
Then I got I out and rapidly GAINED two stone .

Yes, you read that correctly

Nayy93 just thoughtbi would confirm I am not pregnant so I am pretty sure it is the could causing the odd weight gain

I went from 9 stone to nearly 10 stone in 7 months, then had it removed about a months ago. So far I am down about 3 lbs, but I had an awful experience with mirena overall. I felt like I had PMT every day, was bloated, tired, no sex drive. Feel much better since I had it out!

Have you changed breast feeding recently? If you have stopped it could be the reason for weight gain. I have the Mirena and have not noticed any weight gain.

Sorry for the delay. I stopped bfeeding over 3 months ago so I guess that might be a factor...
