I had the Mirena inserted 2 years ago and have picket up about 7kg since then, my breasts have swelled as has my waist line. I feel like I am in a early stage of pregancy as my breast are also often tender. I have thought about having the mirena taken out and returning to normal contraception. I have also had cyst growth continue since the Mirena was inserted. Please advise

Some women do have side effects from the Mirena. It depends how inconvenient they are for you.
