My GYN recommended the Mirena as an alternative to Depo Provera
shots. This has worked well, as it does not have side effects
or weight gain. It was not comfortable being put in though,especially if you have a tipped uterus, which I do, and I wish I would have known this and taken something for pain ahead of it's placement.
I finally feel that the Depo Provera is starting to leave my body. I believe it is stored in the fat I still have.
