TTC after Mirena

Anyone have any experiences? I have my Mirena removed after 2 years on Wednesday. How long did it take for your body to get back to normal (cycle wise). Anyone get pregnant without having a period? I haven't had a cycle since Feb 2011, and feel very out of the loop now.

I'm planning on using some OPKs this time around, but have no idea when I should start using them.

Re: TTC after Mirena

I conceived on our very first try after the mirena. I had it taken out November 12. Had my first period November 18th. Started to TTC December 13th and conceived on Christmas.

Re: TTC after Mirena

I got pregnant about two weeks after mine was removed (the condom broke!), before my period ever returned.

Re: TTC after Mirena

It took me two and half years to conceive after having Mirena removed. It was a nightmare. I can't say enough about how awful Mirena is.

Re: TTC after Mirena

I got my pregnant my very first month after it was removed! No period other than the initial bleeding from it being removed. I actually made an appt with an OB who specialized in PCOS to find out why I hadn't had a period yet (I was on CD 70). Turns out I was 2 months along!!! Took us 2 years of actively trying for my daughter, and an oops for my son lol.... best surprise ever!!

Re: TTC after Mirena

My mirena was a nightmare and I think the cause of my secondary infertility. I didn't get a real or full period back for over a year. They even tried medically inducing it with medication. Nothing. I lost 3 babies (one set of multiples) on the only two times I ovulated that first year and had faint bleeding so it was almost like a period. We didn't get a sticky bean until close to year 2 of trying (couple months short of two yrs) and right around that time I got 2 real periods then nothing the month I conceived. I thank god for the little blessing I'm pregnant with now but I will NEVER go on mirena again.

I had mine in for 5 years. It got lost, I nearly had to have surgery for them to find it but after the ultrasound the doctor tried one last time and painfully retrieve it. whew. Before mirena I was very fertile and conceived twice while using the pill correctly. That is why I am convinced the mirena had something to do with it. Not trying to be the party pooper but mirena wasn't so great for me.
