Karen (4 years ago):

I have felt nothing but severe hunger pangs since I got the Mirena put in. I eat healthy, exercise, and am eating the appropriate diet. I am getting it taken out ASAP because it has become unbearable. I gained 2 lbs. the first week it was put in and that was without changing my diet.
