IUD Removal & Tips 2 Conceive Girls (Warning could be TMI_

Okay, so on 1/15, I had my IUD (Mirena) removed. While I had it in, I gained over 30 pounds that I just couldn't get off, no matter what diet I went on, and I tried damn near everything!!! I also lost my libido/sex drive. I have also felt really "clouded". Since I have taken out, even through my current visit with AF, I can't help but jump my hubby's bones and do the BD everyday. I have also lost 7 lbs in less than a week, not changing my diet at all!!!! I'm also so much happier and loving. Has anyone else had this same situation??? I want to know what other good effects I can expect to get from getting my IUD out. I am loving this and don't think I'll have it put back in after I have another baby b/c i don't know if this is worth it.
Also, I want to try to conceive a girl, any ideas on good methods???

For conception, try having intercourse every month around your ovulation days as it is the best time for conceiving. Ovulation is the release of a single, mature egg from a follicle that developed in the ovary. It usually occurs regularly, around day 14 of a 28-day menstrual cycle. The best timing of intercourse in order to conceive is day 10, 12, 14 and 16 (in case of late ovulation) of a 28 day cycle. After intercourse, do not wash immediately and keep on lying for some time. You can also keep a pillow under your buttocks.
Zygote is formed after fertilization of the XX(chromosomes from females) and XY(chromosome from males). A girl is denoted XX and a boy XY.
Each of them has a chance to react with the other in their counterpart.So after mating there are 4 probabilities- XX XX XY XY i.e. 50% chance of having girl and 50% chance of having a boy.So there is no method proven as such in medicine which can guarantee a female child.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Okay, A little background, I recently had my 2nd Mirena removal 1/21/12. My first one I had put in after having my 3rd child Jan 2003 and removed in Jan 2008 (no issues with removal, spotted a little but nothing major), I had a little weight gain after the 4th year of having it, but lost it all by the time I had it removed, I had no periods. No other problems what so ever. I had my second fitted in Feb 2008, Again no problems, until the 3rd, then depression, anxiety, and major weight gain occurred, 30+ pounds, this is the most i have ever weighed even during my pregnancies!! Again No periods! Removal of the second wasn't bad, a little uncomfortable and a small pinch, but went fine. On the way home I started having extremely BAD cramps. Now 3 days later, I'm STILL having cramps. No spotting, no bleeding, nothing, just very painful cramping. I have been peeing a lot, still bloated, but no bowel movement since removal either. The only thing the gynecologist told me was the hormone should be out of my system in 72 hours. I dont know what to do, I just want things to go back to normal. Has anyone else had these problems? Anything would be of help...
