No Period After Mirena Removal
Hi!, After 3 months of using Mirena I got it removed (didn't like it at al)  April 18th, on the 20th I got what it seemed like a period that last 3 days, I have had unprotected sex a couple times since then. I have't got my period yet, I took 3 diferent ptest and they were all negative. Before Mirena I always had short cycles and was never late, during mirena no periods whatsoever. Could I be pregnant and test negative? Any other reason for the missing period?  Thank you!

I just had the mirena removed due to headaches and other issues. I did have unprotected sex the night before I had it taken out. Could I get pregnant due to the fact the sperm can live inside the body for a certain amount of time?

I got off it in July. Two weeks before I had a short period, the only one I ever had while on the Mirena (almost 2 years). It took me 5 months to have a period. And this is the worst period I have ever had.....VERY HEAVY.

I got my mirena out on 6/22/11 and had only one day of very light bleeding. I have to kids from a diff realionship and one step daughter. My soon to be husband and I want to have a baby to complete our family. I need to know what is going on inside my body. I feel that the dr should have told us all that this might happen when we got the Mirena taken out.

I had my mirena off the first week of june and started bleeding for a week. It is now the last week of August and still no signs of my period. Im trying to get get pregnant but all my tests have been negative. Don't know whats going on but all doctors will tell you is that its ok. My period has always been irregular even before the mirena so i don't know what to expect. i guess i just need to wait...

Hi,
I suppose my story/question is a little different than the rest of all of yours. I had my first and only son March 5th, and had Mirena put in six weeks later. After my body adjusted to the hormones my flow stopped completely. I hadn't had a period for two months. It was very nice, although come to find out my partner was still able to feel the threads and would cut him during intercourse and I bled every single time afterward. I saw my Dr. and come to find out my IUD was holding on by just the arm piece. Unfortunately for me, I had to have it removed. During the time I had it in place, my partner and I had been having unprotected sex thinking that the IUD was correctly in place with nothing to worry about. Now, however, I am worried. I got it removed on September 22, and now three weeks later I still have had no period. Not even a little spotting after it was removed. I'm not trying to get pregnant. I'm 21 years old and my baby boy was my surprise pregnancy while on the NuvaRing. I've taken two tests which both have given negative test results. I know that it could take two to three months before I have a regular cycle, but I am wondering if its normal for me to not have even spotted after the IUD was removed, and if I should get a blood test done to confirm pregnancy.

Help?

can anyone help me. I had my mirena taken out November 15 and was not told that I should start my new pill pack right away. I had mirena removed due to ongoing development of ovarian cysts that were really painful, fatigue, nausea, cramping 24/7, etc, etc, etc...... It is December 2 and still no AF. This is so frustrating and I don't know what to do. I took a pregnancy test and it came up negative. I am not even spotting one bit. This is freaking me out because I already have a two year old boy who I got pregnant with on the pill. Also I am a fulltime college student and work full time. I can't have another baby right now. can anyone help me? how long will it take for my period to come back so i can start my new pill pack? I've heart of people not getting their cycle till a year later. if so, what do i do about birth control?

Hi Everyone.  I am new to this.  First off I have been pregnant 5 times.  I have 3 healthy boys, one little angel in heaven my daughter, and i had one miscarriage at 6-7 weeks.  My first two pregnancies were healthy and normal both delivered via c section.  Then after my 2nd child was born, my new fiance and i unexpectedly conceived a child.  It was a girl!!!!!  Well at 36 1/2 weeks we lost her to true knots in her umbilical cord.  We waited a little over 5 months to start trying again after her delivery.  I suppose due to severe depression my cycles stopped so trying was hard.  Dr. ended up putting me on Avandia and clomid.  We conceived the 2nd month of trying and miscarried at 6 or 7 weeks.  A few days after that I got a call my Dad was dying so I had to fly out of town.  2 weeks later my dad passed away and my husband flew in.  We had intercourse that night and again in the morning not thinking about the possibility of pregnancy.  I was sad and heart broken and i just wanted to be with my husband.  2 weeks later I realized it had been a month since my miscarriage and should be expecting a period.  no period just dizziness and alot of cramping with no show of blood.  So i tested and i was pregnant!  Our son was born this past april.  I had mirena placed in june and only had two periods after.  one short one long.  then nothing.  Still havent cycled since.  I am now trying to plan when to have it removed in hopes of conceiving sometime this summer or next year.  I really want to conceive this year.  After reading alot of these blogs I am soooo scared I messed up by having the mirena placed in the first place.  I want a girl next time.  I planned on trying using methods my dr has taught me and i have done alot of research on and that requires me pinpointing ovulation but it sounds like thats just about gonna be impossible.  Any advise?  Should i have it removed now and take bc pills til we want to try? or what?

When I got pregnant with my daughter I was 21 yrs old,and ON the Depo birthcontrol shot.and I so did not want to become prego.so I also used condoms too!? Somehow in spite of the precautions that I took not to become pregnant, I somehow fell into that 1% chance. After having my daughter, I got the Mirena IUD put in. Ive had it in now for about four years.I havent really had any problems with it at all and have not had any bleeding at all either...UNTIL last friday! omg I had Sharp pain (did not feel like a cramp!) in the center of my uterus in the middle of the night, the pain was so bad and kept me up all night.the only thing that took the pain away the next day was vicodin. This comming friday I finally have an appointment with my doctor to discuss having my Mirena removed because my husband and I are ready to have our 2nd child and our daughter is turning 5 in September. I am hoping that since I was able to somehow become prego.while on Depo shot/with condoms, that I can become pregnant shortly after getting Mirena removed!

Oh! I would also like to add that before I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, I did have light  bleeding,so I thought noo theres no way. And had no morning sickness either. But I took quite a few different pregnancy tests that all came back negative.I didnt find out that I was pregnant until I went into to the doctors for my monthly Depo shot.They took a blood test and a while later I got a phone call saying I was 2 months pregnant!?! I was so so shocked you know?..I told the lady no no theres no way! she responded with I know this is a bit of a shock for you but take a deep breathe and let the news sink in,ok honey.have a nice day.

I had the Mirena for 2 years before my last child. I had it removed in late August 2009, had no period until early October and confirmed pregnancy on Oct 31st. My daughter is 2 now and I had the Mirena put in right at 6-8 weeks postpartum. I got it taken out this Aug 26th, we are TTC our last one and I did have a 1/2 day of bleeding 5 days after removal. I guess it must not have been a period, but maybe withdrawal from the Mirena removal? No one knows. I am feeling frustrated, but am grateful to have found this forum.
I have been waiting for a period, since 3 HPT have come up negative.
I have 4 children and all conceived the very first month of trying except the 4th, post-Mirena. She was conceived after a total of 6 weeks of trying.
I am still waiting for my period and now that I am 37, I am slightly more worried about conception. I have been so blessed in the past to conceive quickly. Unfortunately, I am not patient.
Hopefully, my period will return and I will ovulate, so we can have our last little one.
Thanks, ladies for sharing your experiences. It really helps me to not feel alone! My husband, obviously, loves the TTC part, so he doesn't care how long it takes, etc. I think women feel more pressure when TTC.
I hope this can give some of you some hope, even for myself! I really don't think the Mirena influences anything but short-term fertility, based upon my own experience, but it may take a bit to return to normal.
Best wishes to all of you!

I got the mirena right after my second child was born. Hadn't had sex in 7 months and when I did it came out. I had the mirena in for a month before it came out and the whole time it was in I did nothing but bleed. I have not bled since the day it came out. I haven't bled in 3 months now and am concerned I'm pregnant. I have taken 2 pts and they both say negative. I just don't inderstand what's going on with my body I feel like I'm pragnant, I'm gaining weight, headaches daily, but no morning sickness. Has anyone had the same problem and not had a period for 3months?

Same issue here, I had mine removed 11/20 and nothing. According to my Dr. I was fertile the day it was taken out. I had some minor spotting at first, but that was it.

Nada, zippo, zilch, zero.... I have not had any babies before, so I really don't know what to expect.

It has me on edge, wondering and waiting....

Hi, I'm very much the same as most of you, it's driving me insane already, it's only Been  five weeks since I had the coil removed, I had light bleeding 2 days after for approx 5 days then 2 weeks later I had the same again but I wouldn't say either of these were periods, since then if had alot of pregnancy symptoms Inc extreme bloating, it's horrendous, a test was negative this morning, I believe just im not pregnant, but from what I can gather is that the coil must trick our bodies somehow in to believing we are pregnant, this sounds crazy but it's not the only explanation as none of us are actually pregnant!

Yes the hormones it releases make the body seem pregnant so you won't ovulate. I was perfectly healthy before mirena, i had it removed in december and haven't had a period since. But i am pregnant. After mirena i have found out I have PCOS and Premature Ovarian Failure. I do believe the mirena is responsible.

I didn't have the Mirena. But I had the implanon in my arm for 3 years and it was time to remove and/or renew. But I didn't immediately renew as I was considering the 12 year version instead of 3 again. Anyway, my doctor told me not to expect a period because it wasnt a sure thing. She told me that estrogen could stay in my body for 1 minute or 1 year. I took it off May of this year and I conceived in June! And I'm 4 months pregnant with a baby girl. And I found out I was pregnant at 2 months. I have had no symptoms up to this day. I don't even feel pregnant. I just wasnt expecting a period that it wasnt a big deal until it was too late to get on BC for 12 years lol

But when I removed the birth control I had a brown discharge for about 3 days almost 2 weeks after it came off. So dont expect a period soon. Like my doctor said 1 minute to 1 year. Just play it safe in the meantime.

I had the mirena removed in april 2013 and now its almost november 2013 and still no period. Only recently my stomach feels weird and my nipples are extremly sensitive (almost painful). with my first son I took tests and they all said negative. It wasnt until I got a blood test that said I was pregnant and also found out I was 4 months pregnant. Im worried. Should I go get a blood test or is this normal after the removal of the mirena??

I was late removing the mirena I had it in me for 7 years my doctor left and after that I had trouble getting a new doctor.  I have had my mirena put now for a full year now and my periods have not normalized and I am not pregnant or close menopause.  By not normalizing I mean when I do have one it is less than a day long.  I don't know what to think I am worried to because I do want to have a baby.
