Hi ladies, I'm so very sorry that I've not updated in so long. I am still reading your comments, and I'm happy and thrilled that people have found this site, and that it has helped women realize that they are not "crazy", and that the symptoms they are facing after getting an IUD are real, and they ARE related to the Mirena.
I have really struggled to lose the weight I gained with the Mirena, which has never been an issue for me before. I am convinced something about that thing changed my body chemistry, but maybe I'm wrong. I somehow doubt it. I will spare you the details, but even switching to a vegetarian diet with no processed or fast foods hasn't worked. The good news is that I started Medifast less than a week ago, and the pounds are starting to shed like crazy, so it seems like my journey with this is going to come full circle.
Otherwise, I feel happy, healthy, and thrilled I got that thing removed.
I encourage you ladies to keep commenting, keep the conversation going, and keep helping each other.
