It is the copper IUDs that can cause heavy periods, not Mirena. The main reason for IUCDs to be inserted during periods is to be sure thatv you are not pregnant at the time of insertion.

Demi,

I had my Mirena inserted just after having my period. It is more preferrable during menstruation as your cervix is a little bit more open. My periods stopped altogether after 2 months and i did not gain any weight. But it differs from female to female if your period is going to stop. With that there is no guarantees. Even my gynae told me that.
Hopes this help.
