Hi, I just saw your journal entry on the Homepage and had to comment! My doctor recently suggested I switch my birth control to either Mirena or the Depo shot (I am currently on the Evra patch and I really like it but have been having some irregular bleeding) but I found the same thing when I looked it up online! I was so disappointed! I noticed that the Mirena website says that it has less of an effect on weight than other birth control methods but there were real people everywhere saying it does. UGH! Anyway I'm stuck because I'm definately not going on the depo shot either! One of my good friends is a pharmacist and when I asked her about it she said she wouldn't recommend it as it can lead to osteoporosis which is bad enough on its own, but it can also take up to two years to get your fertility back. Anyway, just wanted to comment because I'm annoyed about the Mirena thing too, I mean I didn't actually go on it yet and I'm lucky that I read peoples comments online before I made a decision but the company should be honest and say "may lead to weight gain" or whatever because obviously that is whats happening!
