Hello all- I need some lady advice! I recently determined -- with the help of my PCP, that my birth control has resulted in fairly severe weight gain this year. I got a Mirena IUD in April and have gained 20 lbs, despite eating better- cooking healthy food at home, less alcohol- and working out more regularly. I love the IUD's convenience, but I am uncomfortable in my body at this size and the weight is proving near impossible to take off. I could do better in eating and working out, I know, but am I no where near bad on either front. I love the fact that I don't have to worry about BC and that I don't have a period (my cramps are very very bad.)
What would you do?
