Hi guys, so I'm 22 recently married and am scheduled to get the mirena inserted in a few weeks. But the more reviews I read the more aprehensive I get bc of possible side effects like mood swings and weight gain/bloating. I was on NuvaRing for a year and went from being a size 10 to 16. It also increased my anxiety/depression and I always was bloated. I think the only good thing it did was prevent pregnancy and acne. So my question for yall is how many of you experienced things such as weight gain/mood swings? Did anybody see an increase in their anxiety/depression?
You can't compare the two. The ring has estrogen in it mirena doesn't. Estrogen is often the culprit in the side effects you had. When you read reviews you aren't going to see the ones from people who loved it because they don't do reviews. Its the ones who are unhappy with it that do the reviews.
Hi I have been on the Mirena for 11 months and I love it, I have had no major weight gain or mood shifts, when you first get Mirena more than likely you will cramp and bleed and then spot, I did but over time that lessens, every woman varys and it depends on your body you should be fine :)
