1st period after mirena iud removal comes after how long?

had my mirena iud in for a little over 4 years and just had it removed 1 week ago. i did not want to get pregnant again until next year and was just having it removed to switch to a bc pill that helps with pcos symptoms. my doc told me i should start bleeding within a week of mirena iud removal and to begin taking my new bc pills thursday (tomorrow....1 week after removal) after starting my first period.

she told me to use back up contraception until i've been on the new pill for a full 2 weeks. after not having to worry about that for so long, my husband and i slipped up and had unprotected sex 3 days after removal. the next day, it seemed i was ovulating (during my usual day of ovulation prior to mirena, i would have clear cervical mucous present and that's how i knew which day i was ovulating each month).  i haven't had my period yet; not spotting or any blood at all since removal. i'm now worried that i'm pregnant but it is too soon to take a test.

obviously i don't want to start the bc pills until i know for sure i am not already pregnant.  has anyone else had mirena iud removed and how long did it take you to get a period? any input is appreciated!

Hey there they say it can take a few months for your cycle to come back and to be able to start "trying" I had my mirena removed October 1 2010, spotted that week then nothing. I didnt get a period until November 4 2010. Im in the army and actually was excused from a Physcial Fitness test due to the cramps.. So just wait be patient and keep me updated and I will keep you updated..

When my husband and i were ready to ttc after our son I had my mirena removed. It was taken out on the 18th of jan n i started my period that evening and had it for about 5-7 days. Feb 18th, right on schedule i started again n then march 18th i took my positive pregnancy test. After giving birth to our daughter, i had another mirena placed but recently had it removed. It was taken out on the 10th of sept and i was thinking i might be prego already cuz i never started(besides some light spotting 2 days after removal but i started 2 days ago. 18 days later. it was was different from the first time. hope that helps.

  Hi, I'm new to this. I had my Mirena removed on Nov 7 after having it for five years, and started a light spotting on Nov 11 which lasted for about 2 days. A week later I started spotting again, and it last 2 days. On Dec 6 I started bleeding heavy so I am assuming that this is my period. I thought I was preggo but now I guess i'm not. We r actually ttc, so now I'm just waiting to see if we will have any luck in Jan 2013

Hi I've been trying to find some answers. I had my mirena for almost two years and had it taken out on Nov . I had some heavy bleeding with clots starting on the evening of the 3rd and ending on the 6th. Nothing since not even spotting. I have been taking preg. test and keep getting BFN. I'm having nausea at night, and  horrible cramps.  Im starting to wonder if something is really wrong.
