Overweight, unable to lose weight. On mirena birth control. When will its side effects wear off?

Hi, my name is XXXXXX. Pleased to meet you! I just wanted to know..How long will I have to wait until all of the side effects from the Mirena go completely away (especially weight gain ). I just had my Mirena t-stick removed today. I am only 21 years old and I am overweight and have not been able to lose anything while I had the Mirena even though I worked out and ate right.

Dear Madam,

OCPs lead to weight gain that is a common problem with them . I think regular exercise and right diet will help you lose weight.
