I just had the mirena (levonorgestrel) inserted after coming off the pill due to weight gain? Will mirena (levonorgestrel) make me gain weight as well or no due it not having estrogen?

In brief: IUD

Progesterone iud's are reported as weight neutral in the literature.
They are an extremely effective form of birth control and can decrease menstrual flow.
