Keeping BC Weight Off?

Hi! I had Mirena inserted about a month ago, and since then I've gained about ten pounds. :(
Since it's, you know, inside me and otherwise I have not been unhappy with it, I don't feel like it's worth having it taken out. But I am not feeling good about the extra weight. I was much much hungrier the first two weeks, but that has gotten better by about 50%. My diet is pretty good, lots of water and high in fiber, not a lot of junk. I have had a few more sweets cravings since I've had it, but it's not more than 1/5 of pint of Ben and Jerry's ever few days, or a couple cookies. I exercise moderately, but I am disabled so sometimes it's difficult.
Do you think my hormones will even out and I'll shed the pounds, or that it will get worse and I'll continue to gain?
Any tips or thoughts you could give would be much appreciated!
