I keep reading horrifying reviews about weight gain and acne while using Mirena. Is there a part of the population that didn't have this happen? I have my appointment scheduled to have it inserted and I am extremely nervous. I have had very heavy periods and really bad cramps with the pill I am on so my doctor has suggested this.
Everyone's body reacts differently to birth control, someone can expirence weigt gain or acne but someone else doesn't.
You won't know until you've tried it.
However some of the most common side effects of mirena are weight gain, acne, migraines, abdominal pain and irregular bleeding.
