Mirena

Hallo Doc

I am 47 yrs old and had the Mirena fitted in 2005. Everything is wonderful and I have no problems. I went back after a year and the dr is also happy.

I suffer from an overactive thyroid and have been battling with weight. However, since 2005 it seems to me that my weight distribution changed. Where I always picked up weight first around my thighs, my tummy now seems to be much bigger.

Is it the Mirena or does this happen after 45?

Thank you as always for your help.

Regards

It is more likely to be age related. Weight distribution chnages with age.
