Weight Issues with Copper IUD

Has anyone gotten a copper iud hoping to lose weight and been successful? Or did anyone gain weight for that matter? The whole range of experiences would be helpful info. Most posts related to weight that I've found here involve the Mirena.

I have a friend who just joined the iud club! Its my understanding that particularly when switching from bc pills to an iud like her, people can experience loss of weight the pills put on or prevented them from losing. But now she's read something about cortisol levels from bodily stress from the iud possibly causing some weight gain and is worried. And like anyone worried about something, all she can find searching now are examples of weight gain rather than loss. I got a copper and my weight didn't change at all up or down, but I wasn't taking pills before, and I don't think my one lone example is appeasing her worries =) What's your experience been? Thanks!
