Hello! Wondering who has experience with TTC soon after having a Mirena removed?
How soon after removal did AF arrive?
When did you start TTC?
Did you fall pregnant successfully?
I have just had mine removed and keen to get cracking but have been told to wait for one full cycle. I’ve also read online that you should wait even longer?
Would love to hear your experiences.

Hi I did- I had mine removed, had some bleeding for a while (not heavy) then had a proper af 4 weeks after removal. Started ttc that cycle and fell pregnant.

I got mine out mid August. We started TTC straight away. No one said I had to wait at all. I don’t know why you would?

I had some light spotting two weeks later, and the first proper period 6 weeks after that. My cycles reduced in length from 6 weeks to about 32 days.

It took 8 months to fall pregnant. I’m don’t think that is connected the fact I had come off the mirena though.

I got mine removed and fell pregnant before I got a period. Unfortunately that one ended in a mc, quite unrelated to the mirena (I had 2 mc before I had my first, so before I’d had a mirena). I can easily tell when I’m ovulating so it was easy to tell when to try.

ETA - I fell pregnant again and he’s now 2yo.

I had a Mirena removed and was sent home with instructions to begin fertility treatment with my first period. I never got to the fertility treatment as I fell pregnant (with twins) within 4 weeks of removal. To say that the doctors, husband and I were extremely shocked is an understatement!

I had nil bleeding when my Mirena was removed. I then had a 50 day cycle, a 28 day cycle then fell pregnant on third. That ended in miscarriage and I’m now 68 days post d&c.

I should mention that my 1st was 5 years TTC and 4 cycle IVF 12 years ago with my 1st husband

Can’t remember exactly how long after removal it took to get my period, but I do remember a bit of spotting immediately after. Cycles varied between 29-45 days. It took 21 mths to fall pregnant with ds2 with 5 losses including his twin.
It was a bit of a shock after we had conceived Ds1 so easily, it was first go with him.

You can actually fall pregnant from sex in the few days prior to mirena removal. I also had mine out to ttc two days ago but wasn’t advised to wait a cycle. Best of luck!

eigne - apparently the lining needs time to build up again in order to sustain a pregnancy?

Thanks so much for your replies and sorry to hear those still struggling.

Emma - Are your cycles back on track now?

I’m pretty impressed you still know when you’re ovulating. I have absolutely no idea where I am!

I do t really know when I’m ovulating, but I still was getting periods (not heavy ones but regular), so I’m guessing I was still ovulating.
I got pregnant twice before at the drop of a hat so I am acutually slightly worried I may be ‘the one’ who falls pregnant from sex prior to Mirena removal!

That must be so frustrating. Best of luck for it all settling down soon.

I find this really hard to believe since you claim you are a dr with 2 years OBS experience in another thread
