Conceiving after Mirena Removal

Hi,  Know there is a topic on here already about this, just can't find it !!  I had my Mirena removed on Jan 19th after 8 months.  Bled for 2 days after removal.  Am concerned that it seems to be the case that cycles are longer after removal.  Have had ovulation signs on and off for about a week - which seems awfully late to me and can't possibly last that long ! lol.  

Have 3 children already and conceived within about 2 months with each of them.  Is anybody in the same position as me ?  Am also signed on to a different forum as well but nobody there seems to have any experience of this situation.

it takes time to get your cycles to regulate.  if you have had the Merina out for less than a full month then it is in my experience that the first few cycles are a bit longer after removal....think about it....you had this hormone in your system messing with your body and cycles for (in your case) 8 months....it will take a few months for your cycles to regulate.

i am not a doctor but had Merina for 5 yrs.....had it removed May 2,08 due to it being at the end of the life (5 yrs) and causing complications with my body.... excessive irritation, preg symptoms,ect... my first cycle was 39 days, then 35,27,25 and 30...or there abouts. i conceived (i am now almost 24 weeks preg) mid september after my first Normal cycle.

i understand that you conceived your other children in a short amount of time after you decided to try, BUT were you on a hormonal birth control like Merina before hand?
you might get pregnant right away or it could take a few months....give it a little bit of time and research the amount of time you should wait after Merina removal to start ttc.  reason for that (from what i have read) is because the Merina causes your uterine lining to be thin (which is why you have light or spotty periods) and it needs a few months to get thick enough to hold a fertilized egg.  i have read that alot of women who DO get pregnant right away after IUD removal go on to have a chemical pregnancy because the lining is just not thick enough to hold the implantation.  just a little to think about....good luck to you and hopefully you will find yourself falling preg (if that is what you are wanting) within the next few months.

I had mine out this past Nov, spotted for a few days and then 3 weeks later my actual period came. I am also ttc and so far nothing...  It takes time to get regular cycles once Mirena is removed.

H, thanks for your replies, congrats Joyce on yoour preg.  Yes I had been on the pill before having my other 3.  Guess I am just an impatient sort of soul !  Also I am 35 now, my youngest is 17 months, and I don't want to be both too much older or have too much of a gap between them.  I have been having period like pains for about 2 weeks now on and off.  Also I had af a week before Mirena removal, was the bleeding I had after just because of the removal ?

Must confess I wish I never had it fitted, I bled on and off for the whole 8 months it was in.

Well..I'm sort of i the same boat...I had my Mirena removed on January 14th due to ovarian cysts. Bled for 10 days. Started A/F on Feb. 4th, lasted 5 days...completely normal from my old cycles. Not sure on ovulation...had some ovulation symptoms, but wasn't sure. Had sex quite a bit the weekend of Vday (Feb 14-Feb17th) Only used a male condom. On Feb 20th, (I didn't bleed any after the AF) I had some clear discharge with pink spotting. Nothing before or after. On Feb 23rd, woke up to very sore, tender breasts and nausea. Extreme fatigue has settled in now and I'm more irritable than ever. Pregnancy never crossed my mind...until now. My A/F would be due again tomorrow (if it's normal)...took test yesterday, Negative. Wondering if it's possible I'm prego or not???

Hi, thanks for your reply.  Just to update you all I am pregnant.  I am now about 6 wks along, so yes you can fall quickly after Mirena removal.  there are lots of topics on this and it also seems you can have preg symptoms after removal but not actually be preg.  I had my Mirena out 19th Jan, but don't think I conceived until about 1st or 2nd week of Feb, so I think I would have had a longer cycle that month as I had my last a/f around mid Jan, which would make me more like 7 wks now but I'm not.  Obviously also concerned re m/c risk as have had one before.  I didn't show positive on tests until 3rd week in Feb, my advice would be to wait a few days and test again.  Are you ttc ?  Let me know how you get on,

hi

i had my mirena coil out on 15th Aug, i was day 3 of my period when it was removed and bled til 20th Aug, my dh and I are ttc baby number 4 hence the removal. I used an online ovulation calculator and it said i was due to ovulate on 30th Aug, on Sept 3rd I started getting all the usual symptoms associated with pregnancy and still have them now, sore breasts, very tired, frequent peeing, slight cramping and lower back ache, is it possible i am pregnant and symptoms are unusually quick or effects of the coil? I seriously swear my boobs are killing! I lost my first 3 pregnancies and have a prescription ready to take progesterone suppositories as soon as i get my bfp to help thicken lining of womb. so unfair how the body can play tricks and make us think we are preg!
any insight appreciated!

Hi all, just to update, I am now 35wks pregnant, so everythink stuck this time, They say fertility returns immediately after removal and I guess I can only agree, tho I have heard of people taking months to conceive after removal.

My advice is just to keep trying, thinking of you all.  This is definately my last baby, and to be honest I haven't got a clue which contraception to go for after this, both the injection and coil didn't agree with me, and I don't want to go back to the pill due to my advancing years !!!!

Had my Mirena removed on February 23rd, 2011 after having it for 11 months. I had light spotting for two days after removal. I had pregnancy symptoms - headaches, sore breasts, nausea, cramping, extreme tiredness - but 4 negative pregnancy tests. I tried doing ovulation testing but never determined when I was ovulating. I had a reoccurring uti which may have caused the "pregnancy" symptoms. Finally after 35 days post removal I starting bleeding, so I assumed I started my period. I went to the doctor the same day because my UTI I had returned. She test me for a urine pregnancy test which was negative, just in case. The funny thing is I stopped bleeding after 1 day. I have been having unprotected sex all this month. Is there anyway I could still be pregnant, or does the 1 day period due to the lack of lining released. It's getting a bit frustrating to say the least.

Is it painful when you have this removed? And also, what is the percentage of people that get pregnant right away after having remover? Any help would be great! Thanks Yall!

Hi, I am new to the forum.  I also had my mirena removed on January 30, 2012.  A week after having it removed a bled for a day and a half.. nothing since then.  My hubby and I have had unprotected sex a few times since and I just wondered if it is possible for me to get pregnant yet? We are not actively "trying" but not trying to prevent either.  We have 2 children already and would like another.  The last week my nipples have been extremely sore and frequent urination..but I feel like it is too soon to start seeing symptoms?? I am so confused, I haven't had a period in 5 years and I am not sure if what I am feeling could be that or pregnancy... any help or advise would be appreciated!

Man reading about all this is strange I had my Mirena taken out on the 14th of March and I had spotty bleeding for three day 2 days later. for three weeks I have had pregnancy symptoms but from everything I've read that is a normal side effect to having the hormones leaving your system. After all my research I'm more afraid of getting pregnant too early after taking Mirena out. I followed my fertility calender closely and took ovulation tests and had sex consecutively while it said I was ovulating around the 6th of April. From everything I've read the women that do get pregnant right away seem to all have miscarried because their uterine lining isn't thick enough yet to carry an egg. Now I'm a bit scared but I've also read that drinking and eating a lot of soy and legumes and flax seeds, B6 and baby asprin all help to thicken your lining so it looks like its a trip to the Health food store for me tomorrow.

I just had my iud removed yesterday due to its life expansion. I had it put in June 2007, during the 5 yrs I never bleed or had symptoms untill the past few months I had very serious cyst on my ovaries that ruptured and were very painful. Two days before it was removed I did spot and had symptoms of when you're ovulating. My husband and I had unprotected sex last night. I'm not sure if just that can get me pregnant. We were planning on trying anyways because we have a daughter who is 12, a son who is 11, and  a daughter who is going to be 9 in October. This scares me cause all of the children are older and there's going to be a big age gap. But if we do get pregnant then this will be the last one for I feel our family will be complete. I will keep you posted!

I have had my merina out for a year now and still havent been able to get pregnant. Some people say it takes a year for your cycles to get back to normal. My husband and I have been trying for awhile now and I havent been able to get pregnant...
