I've been sooooo hungry since I've gotten the IUD anyone else. It's really difficult I'm trying to lose weight and I am not losing weight because I feel like I am starving. But it could be because I am breast feeding and when I was pregnant I had hyperemsis Gravadrium and I didn't/couldn't eat much because I was so sick? I don' tknow but if my huge appitite is from the IUD I'm getting it taken out.

The Mirena works to try to suppress ovulation by tricking your body to make it think it's pregnant (it contains progesterone). Symptoms which are common in pregnancy are often experienced with hormonal contraceptives as well - weight gain, increased appetite, moodiness, tender breasts, etc.

However, if you are trying to lose weight while breastfeeding - is it possible you are not eating enough? A breastfeeding Mother needs about 500 more calories per day than a non-breastfeeding woman.

I've been hungrier while bfing than I ever was while pregnant. My appetite has decreased as Ethan has gotten older-he turned a year old yesterday. There is a good chance that your appetite is caused from the bfing. If in 6 mos, your appetite hasn't decreased, then it may be partially due to the progesterone in the Mirena. Many women experience weight gain when they take progesterone-only birth control.

I would say that it's more from the breastfeeding than the IUD. I was always hungry when I was nursing.

I actually have been the same way. I can eat 2 whole medium pizza's in one day and its really bad sence im 70 lbs over weight!
Sence Mirena has higher hormones it can be making you more hungry. And sence you like me are BF I suggest sence you feel hungry all the time to try healther thinks like kiwi or other fruits and salads when you feel extreemly hungy that way there isn't much for your body to store(at fats). If that doesn't work and your weight gain and eating is still pretty exessive then maybe a nother form of BC is better.
