I know I sound like a broken record here, but Im so glad I found this group. I had the coil put in at my six week check up, back in January. I've had some panic attacks, palpatations, but worse the weight gain. Now mind you, Ive had gastric bypass surgery before I had my two babies, with my first baby I lost the weight quickly and then became pregnant with my little girl six months later Since that coil, ive gained about 15 lbs...which is odd cos I eat like a mouse and go to the gym three days a week. I went to my Dr, the same one who told me the coil would be great complaining of all these symptoms, my hair was falling out, I was tired all the time, etc. She said it was my iron and being the mother of two small babies....she also told me when I got it fitted that weight gain stories were an easy excuse for people who dont say no to cake. Well sister, I dont eat cake and I'm fatter than I was when I was pregnant. This little monkey on my back is getting out and the sooner the better!
