pcos and mirena

i was diagnosed with pcos at the age of 17. i am now 28 and have i 1 little boy! it took us 3 years with out any help of meds to get pregnsnt in 2006. after noah was born my doc suggested i use the mirena. i had it inplanted in oct 07. i had 1 peroid that was in may of 09 and other than that some spotting once in awhile.

we are now ttc # 2! i had it removed on 10/13/09. i had the normal post removal bleeding 2 days later and since then nothing. i have tried opks, which someone told me they are a waste of money when you have pcos, and they have all been neg. i took a hpt yesterday and it was also neg.

i guess what i am asking is for people to tell me there experiences and stories that have similar problems. i know i shouldnt panic yet since it has been only 1 month, but i would like to know how long it took to concieve (conceive) afterwards!

looking forward to some reponses and thank you!

I recently was diagnosed with pcos my Dr told me and it was in information i obtained from the mirena web site that the Mirena IUD actually ups your chances of ovarian cyst, and can cause you to miss more cycles when coming off of it. i have always had a regular 28 day cycle since soming off Mirena a few months ago My cycles have been between 28 and 54 days long. i know it's probably not what you wanted to hear, but that what i have been told.

thank you for your response! i am going to try and wait the 3 months and then go back to my doc. hopefully the meds she wants to give me then will help me ovulate and we can then get pregnant! i guess it takes about 3 months for your body to get regulated after the iud was removed! i dont know if i will be choosing this form of contrceptive again!

I know i won't use it again, i had a bunch of issues with mirena. To bad because I did'nt get pregnant on it when I have got pregnant on 3 other forms of birth control. Good luck and baby dust to both of us :)
