Question regarding hormones...

Hey everyone,



I just had my IUD removed because I was having some pretty crazy symptoms due to the synthetic hormones that were released every month it was in there.



Does anyone know how long it takes for progestin to leave your body so your body can start producing progesterone by itself again? I really hope someone knows or can point me in the right direction. I'm hoping it's soon so I can ditch some of the weight I've gained from having the IUD.



Thanks! Any feedback would totally be appreciated :)

It's different for everyone. Many women go back to normal right away and others take several months before their body regulates. If you were really sensitive to hormones (and it seems you were) it might take you longer to readjust.
