Has anyone had the Mirena IUD and had it removed to ttc. I am just curious how long it took you to conceive after Mirena IUD removal? How long until your menstrual cylces were regular? I got my IUD out on Aug 5th and am ttc. I have had lots of spotting and maybe a period but nothing regular. I called my doc and they said that it takes 3 months before the hormones are out of your system. The mirena website makes it sound as though you can get pregnant anytime after removal. Any advice/stories would be appreciated. Thanks.
i think i mite me with child. i started to have sex right after it was takin out and the last weekend of june i had some sign that i mint be ovulation so we did it and 6 days later i had very very light spoting and i am pee all the time and my body feel diff i took a test monday because i dont no wheni would be ovulation and the dr said to wait to july 12 is af dont come to test i cant wait to july 12th and if im not i guss i have to try over
Im happy to test showed a plus for pregnant!!!!!!!! YAH! My husband knew i was testing this morning so I decided to do it downstairs. Then i called him down to eat bfast and told him to get something out of the oven. It was a bun! It took him a minute to get it then he asked if i was pregnant. I had to show him the test. :D
Was your period supposed to be due on July 4? Let me know because mine is due July 8, yet I hesitate to test until July 8 for fear of early negatives. This would be my third, and I'd be thrilled, yet nervous because I just had my IUD pulled out June 22, right before ovulation time. So back to my question, was July4 your day for your period or would that have been early for you? And congrats!!!!!!! babies are truly gifts to be treasured.
Hey..sorry I'm so late with responding but my period was due on today the 5th and the test was actually Clear Blue. I posted some pictures of my test and u can see the instructions on the background.
As far as symptoms go I have been really tired lately. For the past 3 days I have had naps in the middle of the day. Very usual for me. Also my breast are a little tender but not as bad as I remember with my daughter 4 yrs ago. I have been going to the bathroom a lot but thought that was just because since my IUD has been out I've been drinking nothing but water. One last thing that i really really noticed was the constipation.
I feel it is much better to get mirena removed before period, as the effect of the hormone decrease can combine with the hormone change before period, and bleed together. Ready-4-Baby-2 is very lucky!
Same as you, I got mine removed around ovulation time. I bled for 4 days and now my period is late. No pregnancy, no ovulation. I think my body is just confused by the hormone change in the mid of the cycle. Too late for me to know this, though. :)
Hope you have good luck. I just hope that my body can get back to normal as soon as possible~~~
Hi.....sory coulnt reply sooner....been a little busy. So did u do a hpt yet? Well from da symptoms u r sayin that u hav...it sounds like u could b pregnant. But also from wut I heard after gettin da mirena out a lot of people sed they had similiar symptoms like dat. But just remember evry1 is different. Hopefully u r pregnant. July 12 is just around da corner:)! So gud luk ok?
thank u for getting back to me i did a test last week but it would have been to soon the dr said im going to see my dr a week from now last time i was pregant the test said i was not so i going to have the dr do a blood test and i going to test tomm to see if the test works this time i want a baby i lost my frist one this time i hope it all works out
Just let you know that 20 days after my mirena removal, I got ovulation (ovulation test positive), so it means my cycle started from the day of removal, and my cycle was changed by the removal.
I am very sad, though. As I had un-protected sex last night, and I really don't want a child this month (I feel sick). I thought I was not ovulating as the test was negative......suddenly today it is positive......
well, I am now 5 weeks post mirena and I am PISSED bc I still no have no period, and no signs of any pregnancy! I wish I had never gotten that thing. I hear of so many women who get off and the next month they are pregnant, and it makes me so sad! Before, I took the pill, stopped it, and was pregnant the next month. I got the mirena when my son was 6 months old, and had it removed June 1... we are trying for baby #2 and no luck. The last 6 months I had the mirena I had no period and I am beginning to see that as more of a nightmare than a blessing. Whenever I am lucky enough to conceive, I will go back to the pill afterwards!
hey update i took a test today it said im not im hoping it just to eairly to tell. im sick of waiting and we will be a part for some time. i want a baby in the next 9 month u have anything u can tell me to help lol
Don't worry, you may find ovulation pretty soon, when you don't expect it....just keep monitoring your basal temperature, cervix position and mucus, do ovulation test. You will get it. The uterus just needs a little bit time to adjust. Good luck!
Hey....sory 2 hear da test was negative....yeah it could b just 2 early. It's best 2 wait until u hav missed your period. I no how u feel....I'm also feeling that way! But try 2 c wen u r about 2 ovulate, that's a gud time 2 try n also after u start 2 ovulate...keep on trying. But try not 2 stress 2 much about it...cause stress can delay conceiving as well. I no that's hard 2 do, but we hav 2 try 2 do that. Just try not 2 think about it n just enjoy.
Well, I got my period, so I know that having Mirena taken out confused my body but also got things on track hopefully. We'll see next month. I'm 34 so my clock is ticking, but with two children already, maybe I'm asking for too much. We'll see. It's nice though to have a normal cycle and not be so moody like I was with Mirena. It's so true that your body can play tricks on your mind and vice versa when period is coming. It's better to leave it in God's hands and pray for the best.
I was in a car accident on Wednesday night, went to the er and was told that I was pregnant, everything is fine with the baby, just a little back pain. I am so excited thanks you guys for all your help and advice. I had my mirena removed on May 9th, and I about two-three weeks pregnant. So almost about two months it tooks for me to get pregnant.
Hi...sory 2 hear about your accident...hope u feel better soon. N congradulations about your pregnancy...thank god da accident wasn't that bad. U must b soooo excited! It didn't take u that long 2 conceive after da mirena ha? I had mines taken out on May 12 n got my period on June 16. Hopefully this month I get some gud news 2 like u. Nyways best of luk with your pregnancy n congrats again!!! Take care.
don't feel bad I had my IUD out april6th and didnt have a period till june 9th and i just took like the 20th test that said neg. i know that sperm lives for 3 days so we are trying to not go more than three days so we have a better chance and this is just frustrating. so i know how you feel and it ***** I thought that after a period i would be back to normal but guess not. I am still waiting and will keep you updated on if and when it happens. Good luck hope things work out for you sooner than later.

Congratulations... I am happy for you. I wish it were that easy for the rest of us. As of today, I am 6 weeks post mirena and I still have not had a period. This is so very frustrating. But, I just try my hardest to stay positive, its very hard, but I am trying. Hopefully sometime soon I will have some good news.
I had my Mirena removed May 20th 2009. I had some bleeding for about 4 days after that. I started my period on June 13th and it lasted for 7 days. I still have not gotten my period for July yet. I have taken 3 tests and they all say negitive. It is so frustrating. I just want to know if I'm pregnant. Could my cycle just be all messed up. It has never been wacky before....some advice please
I had my Mirena IUD removed on June 16. I Bled heavy for about 5 days. I think i ovulated about July 2nd. We have tried several times over the last month. It is now July 13th. i have achey tummy(not cramps) and very tender breast...have taken a few pregnancy test but all say negative :( Do you think its too soon to test? If so when will i get my period?
Hi ladies....I think it's a little 2 early 2 test. Yeah your periods can *** @ a later date...after da mirena removal u hav 2 giv it sumtime 2 get bak 2 normal. I would just wait a couple more weeks n c if u get your period then do another test. It's different 4 evry1....sum get pregnant da first couple of months after mirena removal n 4 sum it takes longer. I had mines removed on May 12....I bled 4 8 days. I started getting pregnancy symptoms.....but then got my period on June 16. So i'm waiting 4 this month 2 c wut happens. So don't giv up hope it will happen. Gud luk 2 both of u.
I WENT TO THE DR YESTDAY AND IM NOT WITH CHILD I HOPE THIS MONTH AND I THINK IM GOING TO PLAN A DINNER AND JUST HANG OUT AND SEE WHAT HAPPEN WE ARE TRYING BUT THIS TIME I NOT GOING TO TELL HIM ANYTHING JUST MAKE LOVE LIKE WE DID BEFORE WE START TYING AND MAYBE THIS TIME WE CAN DO IT. I HAVE BEEN TAKING MY TEMP ETC AND STRESSING SO THIS MONTH IM NOT GOING TO JUST GOING TO MAKE LOVE AROUND THE TIME I HAVE BEEN OVULATION AND SEE WHAT HAPPEN
Hi....sory 2 hear that ur not pregnant....don't feel bad, there's always next month. Yeah that's a gud idea....just try not 2 think n stress about it! It will happen wen u least expect it. Best of luk 2 u!!!
Yea they say that it could take come time. It's funny I think we had ours removed around the same time and started out periods at the same time. When I removed mine on May 20th i has beeding for about 4 days then period on June 13th for 7 long days! :) But still now 5days late now....no period. I haven't tested again because I didn't want to make myself crazy! HA! I think I will wait to test again in a week if it doesn't come by then. I wish you the best of luck!
Hi there.....thanx so much....i need all the luck i can get. How r u doin? I no how u r feeling! U will get sum gud news soon....don't worry! Yeah thats weird we got our mirena taken out about da same time. I got mines out on May 12 n bleed for about 7 days. Then i got my period on June 16 which lasted 5 days. I still havent started this month.....but hoping i won't either. I actually did a hpt test yesterday cause i was getting these weird stomach pains, but da test was negative:( So true that can make u crazy!!! But hoping it was too soon to test. So if i don't get my period in a week or so then i'll test again. N yeah u should do da same 2. Best of luk 2 u 2!!! Take care
i hope u are pregant and im going to start trying this week again i did get the ovulation test but he dose not no when im taking them he is the one that is stress more then i am so i dont going to say anything because then he stress me out more then i am so i think i will talk the test to find out what time is best and im going to have more sex before that time. so he dont no when to stress out lol
I had my mirena removed last week (July 8). I just wanted somewhere to log our process of trying to conceive after the Mirena. There seem to be a lot of women looking for answers on how long it will take. My experience with the mirena was very positive. I had no trouble with it and I had no periods during the 3 years I had it. After removal...I had bleeding for 1/2 a day. I had some spotting after sex on 2 occasions since the removal last week. My goal is to conceive before November. Because I had no period while I had the mirena...I'm not sure what to expect. However, I do notice ovulation type symptoms around the 20th of each month. So maybe I should get busy around then :)
Congrats to all of you that have conceived and best of luck to those that are still trying.
I had my iud removed yesterday and hoping to get pregnant soon! I loved the mirena I hanent had a period for 2 years so Im not looking forward to that but hopfully I dont have to experiance it for to long!
Hi there...awww so sory to hear u got your period. B positive it will happen! By da way I wrote to u yesterday but accidently I put (mandyjune1987) name on it. It's da one right after da one u wrote on july,15 @ 11:02...so I hope u red that one. Seems like we r about da same. I still haven't started mines....keeping my fingers crossed. Best of luk to u!!! Take care.
Hi.... how r u? Yeah thats a gud idea 2 do da ovulation test. Yeah no use 4 da both of u 2 stress out. I hope u all da best this month. As 4 me I still haven't started but trying 2 stay positive n tyring not 2 think about it 2 much. Gud luk! Take care.
Hi! I'm new here! I've had the Mirena for about 2 years with just a handful of periods. I have two wonderful boys and we are now ready for #3. I am scheduled to get my Mirena out on Aug.3. I am a teacher and can really only get pregnant in Aug., Sept, or Oct. I was wondering if anyone notice a correlation between their lack of periods on Mirena and having to wait longer to conceive? Good Luck to all you ladies.
ok.. so I was about 7 weeks post mirena with no period and what happened today??? PERIOD!!!! Normally I would be mad, but I am happy bc atleast now I know when to track ovulaton... should my periods be normal. So, hopefully within this next month I will hit the jackpot... we shall see....
Hi there...welcome 2 the site! I also have 2 boys n trying for a #3 now! I don't think it matters how long u had the mirena 4 n that u didn't get your periods much. I read in this n other sites that sum got pregnant the very 1 month of trying n 4 sum it's taking longer. I had mines taken out on May,12 n bled for 7 days. Then got my period on June,16. I also didn't get my period while on da mirena...which was the best part of it!!! But yeah it's different for evry1....so I would suggest timing it.... b aware of when u r about 2 ovulate n that's when u should try. I wish u best of luk on ttc. Take care!
Hello everyone....... i am reading all this comments, i am in the same boat. I got my IUD removed last month and stated trying that same week....... but i got my period yesterday, exactly 28 days.... i have three kids already but i want another baby since my kids are all teenagers now. I had the paraguard IUD for 11 years so i am thinking it might take a little longer. :( but at least i know that i am right on track with my days so i can know exactly when i am ovulating. :)
Hi! They say that it is possible to get pregnant right away but not likely. My Doctor said if I am late not to really pay attention to it until I am at least 3 months post mirena. She said our bodies have to regulate again. I had min removed May 20th had a bit of bleeding for 2 days then got my first period on June 13th. Had it for 7 days then didn't start until July 15th. I was about 5 days late and I am normally very regular. The 28 day cycle doesn't really apply right away. At least that is what I've noticed. I wish you the best of luck! I'm hoping this month will be the one for me. :)
I feel for you! The same thing happened to me on the 15th. I was 5 days late.....getting excited then it came. Hopefully we will have better luck this month. My hubby it sad too. :( Maybe after this month everything in our body will go back to normal and we can track it better. :)
Do any of you know if you can ovulate and even feel ovulation while on the Mirena. I have a slight twinge in my lower left abdomen with slight back ache on the left side (nothing major) and heavy, stetchy CM. I still have my IUD as I couldn't get an appointment until august 3, so if I am ovulating I feel this is still a positive. Am I just wishful thinking?
I have never heard of being able to "feel"ovulation. Lots of people still ovulate while on the mirena, some don't.. its just a matter of your body. Please keep in mind that it will take some time for your body to get back to normal once the IUD is out. It took me 7 weeks to get my first period and it is here with a vengeance. But its ok, bc hopefully I can track my ovulation dates now.
And I read your earlier post... as I am also a teacher... you can get pregnant whenever you choose... you just have to take time off work. They can't fire you for getting pregnant. Try not to set timetables and months bc ofcourse it is all on God's time. I am slowly making myself realize that!
I have for many years felt a twinge when ovulating & had the very stretchy mucus as well. While on Mirena for two & 1/2 years I had neither. I had the Mirena removed on 1/20 & have felt the twinge 12 days after the 1st day of AF, but have not had any stretchy mucus. Also, my cycles have gotten longer & longer with my last one having been 85 days long. :-(
TRYING NOT TO STRESS WE LOST A FAMILY MEBER YESTDAY ITS PUTTING A LOT OF STRESS ON US AND WE ARE STILL TRYING I DONT NO WHAT TO DO TO MAKE THIS BATTER TOHELP HIM I DONT NO WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT I HAVE BEEN UP FOR 48 HR NOW

But now I have some dark brown spotting after sex? Has anyone else had this problem? I have also been feeling sick. I have been getting very bad headaches. Anyone else feel the same way?

i got my mirena removed may 26th,, july 10th i had what i think was a period but it was only for three ddays and the bleeding and cramping was on and off the whole three days..took a test and it was negative so i am hoping it was a period and now i can track my ovulation for this month.
Hey....I'm so sory 4 your loss....my prayers r with u. Try not 2 stress out! Just support him n stay positive! At da moment u guys r having bad times, but just remember that doesn't last 4-ever....your gud times will come soon. I no exactly how u r feeling...we r also goin through a difficult time.

im new to the forum but i have been reading everyones comments for a while trying to figure out what is coming next after the mirena removal. i had mine taken out june 8th and have still had no sign of a period. but im thinking it may be coming soon due to all the signs pointing to pregnancy but the test was negative. im hoping i get it soon just so i know when to try again. i took me a year to get pregnant with my daughter and im really hoping it does not take that long this time. any suggestions on things to try and do to help things along?
okay i took a test on sat and is was neg..... i am getting annoyed now i had my iud out on april 6th and didnt have a period till june 9th and so i thought that i might be back on track but i guess i am not it is now the 20th and no period. has anyone else had a period and then it took a while to have another one after the first period. i didnt really have periods when i had the iud in so i am hoping that i am not really messed up from it. if anyone has experienced the same thing will you let me know this is driving me crazy.
Hi....I'm in da same boat as u. I had da mirena taken out on May,12 n had sum bleeding. Then started my period on June,16...but still haven't started this month! I also didnt get any periods while on da mirena. I've been getting cramps 4 da past couple of weeks but nothin so far. Crossing my fingers n hoping I won't start. After da mirena for sum it takes a few months for your cyle to get bak to normal. It just a wait n c game! I no it can drive u crazy wondering. But hav patience! Gud luk with evrythin!
From what I understand, even if you are perfectly healthy (and so is your partner) there is still on 25% chance you will conceive each month. So you have to be patient. I hate waiting too. Which I guess is why I like this forum.
Someone said they could feel ovulation...I can too. I did when I had the mirena as well. I used to joke, "I just laid an egg."
Again, I just had mine taken out in early July. Our goal is to conceive before November but we will see what happens. My husband and I are really enjoying the trying part. I am trying to focus on our connection more than the actual conceiving.
I was having some spotting after sex the first week after the mirena removal. I wanted to update that is gone now. I noticed some other people mentioned that.
Have a good day!
i feel the same as all of you, i had my iud out june 12 and have had 2 periods and im testing for ovulation the line is omost the same colors so any day now i will be ovulationing, i hope this month will be the month, we lost our uncle on fri and we want to name the baby after him if its a boy... i thank god i have all of u if i did not have this site i think i would be going crazzy
Forgot to mention that I had no period and no complications for the entire 5 years. A small amount of spotting in the last 6 months mostly after intercourse. I have had very little spotting or cramping today and am hoping for the best.
Hi, I'm new to this website, but I got my mirena IUD taken out on July 13, and had really heavy bleeding for 10days, starting the same day it was taken out. My question is in how many days should I expect my period? We are trying to get pregnant right away as well. will keep you posted.
I thought I would share my story with you all. I had my Merina taken out June 3 and didnt have any bleeding or anything. I started my period on June 26 which lasted 5-6days and was pretty bad. I then took a pregnancy test today June 23 knowing my period should come any day. When I took the test it should negative and then 3 mins later I looked again and you can see the faint line showing early stages of pregnancy. So I well test again on Sunday to see how things show. I know my body after 3 kids and getting up in the middle of the night to go pee, is something my body doesnt do. However I have been doing this for about a week or more...I really dont feel prego but only time will tell me more....I am 36 yrs old and have been on the merina for over 1 1/2 and didnt have my period at all. I bleed for 6moths with spotting all the time. After all that my body got in mode and I spotted from time to time... ...If you want to know more you may ask...Wish all you and everyone luck trying...
it definitely depends on the individual. It took my 6.5 weeks to get my period after having it removed and some other people take a couple of weeks, some take months... it depends. Thats a question that no one on this site can answer.
I have only had 1 period since removal and I am praying that I am back to normal bc I have heard of some people getting their period, and then not getting another for months.
Well, I'm still not pregnant after hitting the 6 month mark post-removal. I'm not suprised since it took 2 years off bc & 6 months of actually ttc to get my last child.
This time we're also not supposed to be "ttc"; we're supposed to just "see what happens". However, I'll be 28 days since the 1st day of my last period on Saturday & Baby Daddy is already talking to my stomach & asking his imaginary baby if they are in there. He also suggested that we take a test on Saturday..."just for fun". And just like last time, he wants to see me pee on the stick so he can feel like he's 100% a part of the whole pregancy. Gee, no pressure there.
I'm wondering if anyone else has a Baby Daddy who is as anxious as mine.
So ladies, is it just you, just them, or both of you who is counting to Day 28 & beyond?
Hi everyone! I am new to this site. I enjoyed reading everyones posts. It really helps to see that everyone is going through the same thing I am. I had the mirena for 3 years. It expelled itself on June 15th. I had light spotting two weeks later. Still no period. I have had ovulation twice but still nothing. Two days ago my boobs started hurting so I can test on the 30th and hope things go my way. I have two kids and we are trying for our 3rd. My husband is just as anxious as I am. Good luck to everyone. Hope to read good news from all of you soon!
Thanks you guys for responing. It's just a little nerve wrecking because the thing is that back in April of this yr. a tramaic event happened in my life and the stress caused by this brought among other things my period. I was on my period for 10 days in April, 15 in May, & in June I bleed for about 23 days when I finally went into the Dr. She recommended I take it out, and I decided to on 7/13. I always had a period during the 4 yrs with my iud but they were very light and lasted about 7-9 days and came every 22 days. (Yeah it felt like I was alway's on it) so with the removal of the iud I am so lost and confused??
Hi everyone!! I'm so glad I found this site, Ive been driving myself crazy wondering what is going on with my body!!! I got the Mirena IUD 3 + yrs ago after my son was born. I never had a period or any problems with it. I got it removed on June 16. I had light bleeding/spotting from the 22-26 of June. I'm not sure if that was a period or just a reaction to the iud being removed. Nothing yet for July. I took a hpt today but it was negative. I called the dr and she said that it could take a month or two to get back on track and that if I wasn't having regular periods by then to try the pill to regulate them and then go off of them. I really want to be prego by September. Congrats to all that are pregnant and good luck to the rest of us!!!
Hi I am new to this site. I had my mirena removed july 2 of this year. i bled about 4 days afterwards. my husband and i are trying for baby number two. these past few days i have had quite a few headaches and an ill feeling. i think it is to early to test. i would hate to be disappointed.
that spotting you had for that short period of time was not your period. Thats your body reacting to the mirena being out. It took me 6 1/2 weeks to get a period once my mirena was removed. I never had any problems with it while it was in, but it seems things are so unpredictable now that it is out, I don't think I will go back to this method if my husband and I want a 3rd baby. I think I will just go back to the pill... it was easier to get prego bc I knew when I was ovulating.
YES I AM MAKING A X ON THE CALCULATOR EVERYDAY HOPING MY PERIOD DONT COME. AND MY BOYFRIEND TALK ABOUT UR KIDS ALL THE TIME I NO WHEN I TELL HIM I HAVING HIS BABY HE WILL BE JUST LIKE UR MAN!!!! I WISH U LUCK
I NO HOW ALL U FEEL IT SUCK TRYING MONTH AFTER MONTH AND NOTHING. IT SAD THAT WE ARE HAVING Truble GET PREGANT WHEN YOUR BODY ARE MADE TO DO THIS . IT SAD WHEN I WALK IN TO THE STORE AND SEE PPL YELL AND HURT THERE KIDS AND PPL LIKE US THAT WANT THEN SO BAD ARE HAVING TRUBLE HAVING THEM. IM TRYING FOR MY FIRST FOR U ON UR 2ND AND 3 BABY GOOD LUCK I HOP IM CAN HAVE A FEW KIDS LIKE U GUYS.. I WISH EVERYONE GOOD LUCK
I am new to this site...I had my Mirena removed on Wednesday, July 22. It was quick and painless, but now I don't know what to expect. I didn't menstruate while I had the Mirena in (which I had in for 4 years) and I'm not sure when I will get it. I've read some posts about it taking 6 weeks or more to menstruate. My fiance and I decided that we weren't going to "try" to have a child but it was a mutual decision to have my IUD removed. We asked for the BC patch until we decided that we were ready to start trying but we never picked up the prescription and have not used any other contraception, so I guess you could say we are trying now. I really want another child. I have a 4 year old son. I'm kind of nervous that the Mirena might have affected my fertility? I've talked to my OB/GYN and he said everyone is different but that your cervical mucus is theoretically supposed to go back to "normal" within 3-4 days, I don't know. Any suggestions you have would be great...And I'll keep you updated!
I HAD MY MIRENA REMOVED JUNE 9 AND HAD STARTED MY PERIOD ON THE 7TH OF JUNE... NO LUCK IN JULY IM HOPING THAT FOR AUGUST...I WILL HAVE MORE LUCK...I FEEL SO BAD WHEN I HAVE TO TELL MY HUSBAND ITS NEGATIVE!!
i had my mirena removed yesterday@ a clinic (don't have insur yet) & they told me i needed 2 wait 3 WHOLE MONTHS 2 get preg (but i want2 asap)bcz the lining of my uterus is 2 thin & i need 2 give it time 2 thicken up. Did anybody else hear this from their dr or were they just yanking my chain?
I just want to give you heads up from my last posting yesterday, I went to the Dr and did the blood test and the results came back that I AM PREGNANT!!!!!!!!!
So dont give up it only took less than 3weeks from June 3 removal of Merina to have my period. Then I counted 14days and had sex 3 days prior and few days after Ovulation. I never took a Ovulation test either. I started Prenantal Vitamins since removal of Merina. I got Pregnant 1 month after my period. So dont give up at all.
I am sooooo fertile Mertiile that it has never taken me any time to concieve the 3 children I have.
GOOD LUCK WITH THE BABY DUST TO EVER WOMEN OUT THERE~!!!
Hi....sory to respond late. But I've been in da hospital for 4 days. My stomach started to hurt n I was also vomiting so my hubby took me to da emergency. Actually Ireally did think I wus pregnant! They did 2 pregnancy test but it was negative:(
So then they did some other tests but they r not sure wut is wrong. I have to go bak on Thursday to get a CT Scan done....hopefully that will show sumthin. They actually wanted to keep me at da hospital until next Thursday but I just wanted to *** home. My stomache is still hurting just not so bad! Oh yeah I still didnt get my period for this month! Well I keep u guys posted! Take care n gud luk!!!!
Hello again! Today I am freaking out. I am due to start the 27th. I took a first response two days and it was negative. I took the second test this morning only because I couldnt wait. It had a really faint pink line. I have since taken two more tests this afternoon and still a faint almost barely there pink line. I will wait until the morning to try and test test again. I am freaking out trying not to get my hopes up. Still in the back of my mind I am hoping.
Hello all I am new!! I wanted to congratulate everyone that has gotten pregnant so far, and encourage those who havnt to not stop trying!...SOOO here's the scoop I have a mirena right now and I am having some BAAADDD baby fever, I have 2 beautiful girls already (one is daddy and one is mommy) and of course my husband wants a boy...I would love to start trying but I have told myself that I need a bigger house(we only have a 2 bedroom and the girls share as it is) if I want another baby and this is what motivates me to move toward buying out bigger home but I am just getting it soooo sooo bad...I might just go for it what do you guys think?!
will i took the opks from the days i stop my perod to yestday there was a light line for the last 4 days so we did it the hole time and we are going to keep doing it for a few more days.and hope this works because the test only shows a litgh line i dont no if i miss it or still waiting for it the test said some woman get a light line before it change drack but it not drack i think maybe i miss it and if i did it ok i had sex the hole time. i realy hope this month is the month im sick or trying and trying not to stress if i have a boy im going to name it after his uncle that just die...
MiMi, I had my IUD removed on 05/15/09 after having it in about 4 years, with no period. I bled for about 2 weeks after having it out and then nothing. Today I finally started my period, I have never in my life been more excited to see blood, lol. So i know how frustrating it can be just waiting on your cycle to start. Good luck to you and your efforts to have a new bundle of joy!.
Took three more tests again today. Hubby thinks I am addicted. I am getting light lines. Still a little darker than yesterday. I guess I will go into the doctor tomorrow to get them to give me a definate. As much as I am hoping for that positive, I am hoping that everyone of yall get your positive very soon. Do not give up hope. I had surgery due to cervical cancer shortly after I had my first child. I was told I had a one in ten chance of becoming pregnant again. A few months after trying I concieved my second child. After him I became diagnosed with endometriosis. On top of my previous surgery, I was told that the endometriosis would make it impossible for me to have another one. Viola, after only a month and a half off the mirena I believe I am pregnant. If it can happen to me, it will definately happen to all of you. Good luck to all!!! Holly
I have PCOS, was diagnosed in High school about 6+ years ago. I have never been consistant with my cycles since they first started about 11 years ago.
I started working out in Jan of 2006 to loose weight and feel great for my 21st birthday. Working out was the first time that I was consistant on an almost perfect 28 day cycle. I met a man in Apr and we were pregnant in no time (this was unplanned and not the best thing ever at that time).
7 weeks after my son was born I had Mirena put in, two years later... I now have a beautiful 2 year old boy and moved on. I got married to the most wonderful man in May this year and we want a child together. But in the last 2 years of having an iud I have never had a cycle (keep in mind the PCOS).
I got my Mirena removed July 17th and we're now ttc. I am not sure how to go about the best timing on conceiving, right now we are just winging it- No ovulation tests or charts, just having fun when the mood strikes.
Any thoughts on my situation? I also want to try for a VBAC and I think I am going to be switching doctors... so a LOT of new.
I think maybe you should TTC every other day till you know what your ovulation days are. Also, for VBAC...midwifes seems to be more open and helpful when it comes to VBAC. Have you considered maybe looking into a midwife?
I had my mirena removed at the beginning of July. I think I ovulated last week based on my body signals. I feel kind of icky these last few days. I guess this means my cycle is coming.
So its now been 7 weeks post mirena and still no period. I took another pregnancy test yesterday and still negative. I keep thinking i might be pregnant becuase my boobs got a little bigger and i have those very distinctive blue veins again and i have to keep getting up at night to pee. the not knowing is killing me. I would even be happy to get my period right now just to know when to try again. Has anyone else had these same things happen to them?
It's been awhile since I posted, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me whta to do with irregular cycles. I had the mirena IUD for 4 1/2 years, after having it removed I began with pretty normal cycles after about 1- 1/2 months. So that was about 3 months of normal and then I had my period to end up late by about 4 days. So now I am trying to concieve and I don't know how to calculate this month. Do we adjust the days by a few or trust the previous cycles and figure it will be normal this month?
With the removal of the iud on 7/13 it's now been 15 days and I think I'm crazy because I feel pregnant, I'm peeing all the time, I always seem to be hungry & very tried and I feel bloated..I haven't taken a home test because I don't want to get my hopes crushed if it's neg. Is it too early to test or maybe it's just in my head? any thoughts on what I should do??
I WAS THE SAME WAY RIGHT AFTER I HAD MY IUD OUT AND ITS TO EARLY . IF U HAVE A 28 DAY cycle U WOULD HAVE BEEN OVULATIONING IN THE LAST DAY OR TWO. U SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY SIGN OF ANYTHING FOR AT LIST A WEEK FROM NOW. SO IT IS TWO EARLY. I WAS THINKNG I WAS PREGANT I WENT TO MY DR HE TOLD ME SOME OF IT WAS BECAUSE OF HAVING THE IUD OUT
WHEN WAS UR LAST PEROD?
THE ONLY WAY I THINK U COULD HAVE BEEN HAVING SIGN IS IF U HAD OVULATION THE DAY U HAD IT OUT OR THAT WEEK
the day of my last period was that day 7/13 when iud was removed. but yeah I guess it's just my head playing baby games with me, Because i even feel nause now. I'll see if I can wait to take the test. Thanks
Quick question everyone..... do you guys have mood swings after the IUD was taken out? I am asking because OMG i cannot stand my husband these last days.... i love him so much but i don't want him near me..... and we have been figting so much.....
hi i am new to this site and love reading all ur comments it has been helpful. i had my mirena taken out on 6/29/09 and had very heavy bleeding fo about 10 days or so i didnt know what was going on. but after the bleeding we have been ttc since then i am hoping i get pregnant very soon with my second, with my first daughter i got pregnant right away. i think i am having signs, sore breasts but not as bad as the first time , but i have been getting up in the middle of the night to pee and that hasnt happened before. so do u think there is a good chance i could be pregnant or is it me just really wanting to be??
Spiket77, Yes I have been searching for a midwife. I think there is only one office here in town that will or is willing to do a VBAC, they invited me back as soon as I get pregnant that is. I am very excited to TTC and for a possible vbac.
Sweety09, Same here- I love my husband dearly but man, this last Saturday was birthday and my husband and I did nothing but fight since the IUD was removed.
I think even though I dont have a cycle normally, I think tonight is my ovulation peak. I have been reading up on the signs of ovulation. One is the ovulations test, the other is the basil body temp and the third is the mucus. I have been tracking the mucus patterens because that is all I have or can afford- LOL! Pray for me to conceive soon.
Congratulations... I am always excited when I hear positive stories.
If I am back to normal, which I am praying for, I should be ovulating this week. My husband and I have really been at it, but we will see if it pays off. I sure hope i get prego soon, we have been wanting baby #2 for a while now.
Hi....yeah I'm goin through da same thing as u after da iud removal. I though it was almost my time of da month, but then I realized I was feeling that way almost all da time. I guess it's da hormones....LOL
Hi....they say sum people get pregnancy symptoms after da merina removal. I had sum symptoms last month but then got my period. I really did think I was pregnant:( Just remember sum get pregnant right away n for sum it will take sum time....but who knows u just might b??? I wish u all da best!
Congrats to you landonNhailsmom! I loved reading your story about the doctors telling you that you couldn't conceive TWICE! What do they know? HA! Sorry doctors. If it is meant to be then it happens.
Caralea - Sounds like you are on the right track with charting. Best of Luck!
All- On the emotional roller coaster after the IUD removal. I cried on and off for about 3 days after the removal. I wasn't even sad. I haven't been mean but I sure do get irritated and scream on the inside :) My husband was scraping his ice cream bowl the other night and I thought I was gonna throw that bowl across the room! Of course I didn't and I'm glad he couldn't hear my internal dialogue. HA! Gotta love some hormones.
Well I had my IUD removed June 23rd. Started on the 5th lasted 10 days. I thought that I was due to O on the 19th., So we had sex like crazy. I had no O pains or anything. Yesterday driving home from a friends I started getting O pains and today I have egg white stuff! We had sex Sunday night do you think I am covered or should we have sex tonight?
Well I only had mirena in 3 months I got it removed because I heard horror stories about all the side effects everyone was going through I have a 4 month old I'm not going to be trying anytime soon I got on here because I was seeing if any success stories happened but apparently there aren't any so I guess the mirena was a bad choice but if I do happen to get preggo I will keep y'all posted I just feel things will happen whem there supposed to
I think everyone should keep track of when your ovulation day is because you only ovulate for 24 hours with my child it took 3 years of trying to conceive him so you all out there just keep trying one day the miracle baby will happen
I to have been having pregnancy syptoms but I only had my mirena removed July 15. I have been emotional sleepy and my boobs have been so sore but I also know its way to soon so I think its my body just trying to get back to normal. But good to you all and Im hoping it happens for all us very soon!
Hi It's also been awhile since I posted as well. I would acually like an answer to that question to its frustrating. My cycles since march have been 41-43 days and just this last month it was a 34 day cycle. starting in two weeks we can try again hopefully. Good luck to u and keep me posted.
Sometimes women are put on birth control pills for a few month to regulate cycles. I am not advocating this...just an idea.
My cycles have never been consistent but it seems like you would count based on your current cycle? that and look for egg white cervical mucus. OR...have sex every other day :) for good measure.
Also, somebody said there have been no success stories...but there a lot of success stories on here. I really had no issues with the Mirena. Now, just hoping to conceive.
I feel like I'm either having PMS symptoms or pregnancy symptoms. Bloated, thirsty, warm, achy chest, and light headed. I won't take a test till next week. I kind of want to be sure about what I am feeling. Seeing a negative sign is kind of deflating.
well i finally got my period after almost 2 months since removal. I'm actually happy to see it because i know that my body is getting back to normal. i've read people saying that their pms symtoms were so much like feeling pregnant and i agree. the last 2 weeks i have had all the symptoms of being pregnant and it was just 2 weeks worth of pms. congrats to all the people who are pregnant and i hope i end up in the same position soon.
Thanks so much! I thought i was the only weird one! LOL! :) today is even worst... i am crying of everyting and still fighting with my husband for everyting.... hopefully i won't get a divorce before i get pregnant LOL.
And the wrost part is that yesterday i started ovulation but i just don't want him near me AT ALL! well i guess if this goes on i am just going to waste my ovulation this month. :(
I had my iud removed on June 24th, and I think I had some light spotting right after, nothing heavy by any means. My husband and I are ttc. The ovulation kit I bought was either really confusing, or I'm really dumb. One day it would look kinda positive, the next it was a definite negative. So who knows when I actually ovulated?! I've been waiting and waiting for a period. I'm not sure when I'm actually due for one because while I had my mirena in place, I never had any periods at all. I started to wonder 2 or 3 days ago if maybe I am already pregnant. I took the test in the evening, and it was negative. I'm too scared to take another, though I know that it's best to test the first time you pee in the morning. I don't want to be let down... I know it sounds silly. My breast haven't been tender at all, but my nipples have been really really tender. I've been really really tired, but I work long hours. I've had a decreased appetite. Help! Does it sound like I'm pregnant? Or is my period just taking forever to come? Or is it normal to take this long? I don't have a mom, so I don't know who to ask. Anyone have any ideas?
I too just have to roll my eyes when I read some of these postings. I am six months post removal, I have had VERY long cycles (up to 85 days between 1st day of periods), and every time I get close to having a period, I feel pregnant. To see some people get all worked up over being two or three weeks post-removal just makes me giggle. It took me a year & a half off the bc pills to conceive my last child & three years off to conceive my first. Believe me, a little patience wouldn't hurt any of these ladies.
However, I also understand that some of these women also have time constraints due to enlisted spouses, work schedules, age, ect. I don't think any one of these ladies is more occupied with having a new child than they are caring for the one(s) that they already have.
As for me, I already have two beautiful kids and no pressure to add to my brood anytime soon. It's not that we don't really want to, just that we're young & healthy so time appears to be on our side. Besides, we're both having a great time "practicing" ttc in the meantime. :-)
As a word of advice:
I've come to find that it's kinda fun to get to keep actually TRYING to pregnant. Seems like alot of people either only get to do it a few times in their life, or never get to since they never have to "try" to get pregnant. I think I'd be sad to only have that feeling of anticipation for a few weeks out of my life. Every few months is like getting to open a plain brown box. Most of the time it's empty, but when the day comes that it's not, I'll be that much more appreciative for whatever shows up inside. :-)
Well trust me I know how it is when ur spouse is in the military so there's not much time but I think if everyone relaxes then it will happen stress is very bad on a pregnancy but I want to appologize if I offended anyone pregnancy is a very good thing everyone I wish y'all good luck
I know that I am still just a baby for only having my iud out 2 weeks. I think for most of us women its not just the excitment and anticipation to get pregnant, but it is knowing that someone else is experiencing these things. There are so many "What If's" out there and so many things we all can share to each other that our husbands may think we are nuts to obcess over. So this blog or forum as my husband calls it, is refreshing to hear stories good or bad- it is refreshing to know that you're not the only one out there.
Me personally I am really scared, the PCOS could be fighting against me. But others try to reasure me, I've had one child and so I have the chances on my side. Heck the fact that I have one child and 2 step children, makes me think I am fresh out of the funny farm for wanting more. LOL!
Thanks for all the comments. I am going to keep trying with driving my husband nuts, keeping the ovulation tracking to my self and just keeping my husband on edge wanting more-
As I mentioned above... Keeping somethings to my self is making this ttc with my husband easier. He is content having me want him 2-3times a week and not discussing all the gross things with him. LOL
Man I am in a giggly mood tonight. I am just excited for our future. Part of me wants to conceive this month or next to keep from having a summer baby, the other part says who cares prego and in a swim suit would be FUNNY! Ovulation is confusing when you dont cycle for 3+ years. I had major "spotting" after my sons birth for weeks (or I gues you could call it after birth) and then I had very little spotting after the iud. During the iud and now nothing.
just updating to everyone. it is now past what was supposed to be the time i ovulated. it was between the 21st and the 26th i think. i dint take an ov test just whent by the predictor on the net. i had alot of cramping during that time so i am hoping i was ovulating. just have to wait now,,,, and its driving me crazy... i am gonna take a test on the 7th or the 8th and see what happens... hope thats not too early
Hey I am so glad to hear from you. How are things? From the sounds of it, not expecting yet? I thought my cycles were driving me crazy but I think you have me beat. Is your husband home or is he gone on leave right now? Again, I can't imagine what that must be like for you when he is gone. I love your profile. You didn't have that set up before did you? Your boys are adorable. I keep praying for boys this time. I am late again this month by 3 days now. So maybe this is it. I'll keep you posted. Take care!
I have decided to get my Mirena removed, actually going to the doctor today! I only had it a year and my period didnt stop until this month pretty much.I got it after I lost my son last May and my fiance and I decided to try it again now. I was wondering, did it take long for people to concieve and how long did you have ur IUD? I dont know how to track my ovulation without a period but the test can do that right? Sorry new to this the first one was a pleasant surprise, lol.
