I have had endometriosis for 14 years (knowingly!). After getting 2 cysts removed within 6 months of each other, then getting Zoladex injections for 6 months followed straight by a successful IVF and then a natural pregnancy 2 years later, I now have the mirena coil. In fact I'm on my second one. Although this does help, as I don't have periods now and have very little in the way of pain, I have gained 3 stone in weight. I've never ever been overweight and my diet was far worse than it is now. I totally believe that the mirena coil is the reason I've put on so much weight. I was just wondering if there is an alternative to the mirena coil....I absolutely hate being this fat. I feel totally disgusted with myself and this doesn't help with my depression and anxiety. Can anyone help......please xxxx
