Well, where do I begin? I have had almost every symptom associated with the negative side effects of Mirena. My first year was wonderful (or at least I thought so). I had some weight gain, but I thought it was normal. Over the months more and more side effects came about. I began to gain more weight,experience major constipation, acne, loss of energy, decreased sex drive, and periods of mild depression. My relationship suffered terribly during these times. I finally began to tie everything back to the IUD. My hair even changed. It would not straighten with a relaxer. Once or twice I put three relaxers in within one week and it still didn't straiten my hair. My cousin and I talked about our problems because she had the IUD also and was going through the same things, but worse. She was having serious hair loss issues and mood changes. She has since had hers removed. I have decided to do the same. I called for an appt. yesterday. I noticed that I have gained a total of 73 pounds in the last three years that I have had the IUD. It's time to go! If there is anyone who can tell me how long it takes to get back to normal, or if the weight will come off easily, PLEASE RESPOND.
