Can the IUD make you gain weight?

I had an IUD placed nearly two years ago. I steadily gained 45 lbs over the course of a year after getting it. I work out regularly and eat pretty good most days. I never worked out prior to IUD. Did anyone else gain weight with IUD? Did it come back off after having IUD removed? I’ll be having a hysterectomy.


Yes with mirena … got it taken out and had a baby lol then got a copper one and have been steadily losing weight

Paragard doesnt. I’m assuming hormonal birth control/IUD always has a risk of weight gain.

I only had it a short time but it made me swell and gain weight fast! Took it out and it came right off

I did very bad! Like within the few months!! It also moved out of place on me.

I always have extra weight when on BC. Everytime I’m not it falls off. Its one side effect I ALWAYS have no matter the BC.

I have Mirena and same here. And having an impossible time losing weight.

I gained about 30lbs with the Mirena

Had my mirena 3 yrs now. Gained 50lbs the first year. Have finally managed to drop 15 but that’s it.

Same with Mirena. Just got it taken out and trying to get the weight off. :confused:

Yep! At least with the Mirena.

I didn’t gain weight from that… I gained weight by eating to much. I say that because I lost the weight after changing my eating habits :slight_smile:
