I had one inserted July 2009, since then I have gained 25 pounds, have high collesterol whish is being treated with meds and have very high blood pressure.... I also have tingling in my hands however this may be related to a spinal injury and subsequent surgery this time last year.
The IUD is being removed next week however I am curious whether the weight will go or will I need to diet (I have never dieted before) and could the high blood pressure and colesterol be related to the IUD or perhaps just a result of the weight gain because of the IUD?
