    Default Mirena

    My friend gained a bunch of weight with Mirena... she finally decided just to take it out (her husband is getting the snip snip) and she lost 10 lbs that week or so.

    I'm getting Implanon at my 6 week post partum - its inserted in your arm, by your armpit, and its the size of a matchstick. Lasts for three years... but I can get it taken out if I have problems... I've been nervous thinking about what kind of BC to get after the baby was born, but all of them can cause weight gain, and I got Depo last time... NOT doing that again...... So we'll see..

    I understand that the shot affects evyone different. My question to you is since you got the shot have you had more of an appetite? If so change your birth control. Try it the IUD AND SEE.

    Good luck

    This has me kinda worried. I mean, I know the weight gain is because of eating more from the hormones...but I don't want anything working against me. I picked up my presciption for the depo shot, but haven't went to the dr. to get it yet. Then again, getting prego again before I am done school would not be the best idea. Has anyone tried Merena the IUD?

    It is DEFINITELY the shot! I took it several years back and gained 20lbs within the first 3 months!!! I took the shot on a monthly basis though. There have been similar threads like this before in the past few months. A lot of women here have had issues with weight gain and the birth control shot!! Talk to your doctor and see if you can get a different form of BC! Good luck!!

    Default Anyone on brithcontrol and having problems losing weight

    I started getting the 3 month shot 9 months ago. I gained about 15 lbs in that time. I took phen about 10 years ago and lost the weight, now I am having problems losing the weight. Is it the shot? I am not gonna get it anymore because Iam sterile but it takes a while to wear off. I just wanted to see if anyone else is on the shot. If you ever want to become sterile there is a new procedure. It does not include any cutting.It is called ESSURE. They put these little coil in your tubes and then you grow scar tissue, so the sperm and eggs never meet. I have 4 kids Iam done.
