removal of mirena and trying to conceive

I have had Mirena for 3.5 years and I plan on having it removed the beginning of July. My husband and I would like to try and get pregnant in the first few months after having it removed. I have never had a child before, I was put on Mirena due to getting migraine headaches. Any suggestions on getting pregnant right away?

You can try once you get your first cycle after it's removed. Just don't dwell on it.. Stress of TTC can cause you not to..... :)

Hi, you can fall pregnant straight after Mirena, however in saying this all women are different. I had my Mirena in for about the same time as you. I got my Mirena out on the 27th of August last year, I fell pregnant prob 1-2 weeks after. I think I should have waited 3-4 months, as I miscarried that baby at 5w. My doctor did advise me to wait, even tho the company that makes it (Bayer) says you can start trying for a baby straight away. The lining on my uterus was to thin, when I miscarried I had just normal period cramps and bled a normal period, which really told me the lining wasn't the best. I tried for the next 3-4 months (I should say we) then decided to stop trying as I really thought there was no possibility of me falling pregnant. Then totally unexpected I fell pregnant. I am now 7w 3d pregnant, this pregnancy feels soooo different from the one I lost.

I would never ever encourage women to get this terrible form of contraception. It has to many side affects that the company (Bayer) will not admit too, there a lot of women out there making a class action against the makers of Mirena.

I wish you all the best, I also wish you a bit of patience to wait a few months until your uterus is perfect for your little bean. In saying all I have I am only going on my experience, the choice is ultimately up to you.

I had my 5 yr. IUD removed this year in February 3 and I tested positive for a pregnancy test March 3rd. I went for the check up and baby was conceived February 12th, about a week later. I've read other woman's comments too when I was coming off the IUD and that it can take up to a year to get pregnant. Obviously, I was ready right away. I must of hit the head on the nail exactly at the right time and now I am 1 day shy of being 10 weeks. Good luck and wish you all the best in baby land.
