Hi,
Sorry if this is in the wrong section.
I had my more a coil removed 13th August and my period is due today but I haven't had any of my usual 'symptoms'
does anyone know if the menstrual cycle changes when coil is removed?

I didn't have a period after removing the mirena as I got pregnant immediately...

POAS?

Did you have any bleeding while you had the coil in? I haven't had a period in years as I have a mirena.

I would expect a bit of delay as the hormones leave your system, but I'm not an expert!

Prior to having my Mirena my cycles were always 30/31 days. I still had periods when my Mirena was in place but I never really monitored the lengths of my cycles.

When I had my Mirena removed I had a small bleed a few days later, which I was told to expect and then I was advised to just wait for my normal periods to resume.

I used my previous 30/31 length cycles as a starting point to try and guess when I might be fertile and ovulating and we got pregnant on our first month of trying.

Some professionals say that the Mirena does affect hormones and can cause delays in periods returning and fertility occurring, yet other professionals say it doesn't.

I guess it is just a waiting game hmm

I meant to say that I didn't have to "wait until my normal periods resumed" as we fell pregnant straight away. I had my Mirena removed on the 30th May and then conceived on the 7th July.

Hiya, it took 40 days for me to have AF after getting merina removed in May, I'm still bouncing between 28-35 day cycles! wait it out smile

I didnt have any periods for a long time with the mirena in, but I had it removed on 9th April, and had a 4 day bleed from the following day. My cycles were around 27-28 days, and the periods were all just a day and a half or 2 days long. I fell pg around 15th/16th July and am currently 8 weeks smile

Good luck to you

Thank you for all your replies.
I POAS and it was negative.
5 days after it was expected my period arrived...
Looks like we'll have to keep ttc!

Please be aware that it's best to wait 3 cycles to try to conceive after mirena removal. This gives your womb lining a chance to build up and recover. Miscarriage is more likely before this point.

Is that right?? I'm currently 10 weeks and bleeding. I'm booked in to have a scan on Wednesday and I'm just crossing my fingers that everything will be ok x x

Good luck for your scan on Wednesday writer flowers

Sorry if I've worried you writer. I really do hope everything is ok. I done some online investigation before having my mirena removed a year ago and the general consensus was that waiting 3 cycles was best to give the fetus a better chance of implanting.

Well I was worried before, so a little bit more worry won't do any harm hmm

My first period after my Mirena removal though was horrendous, it was like a blood bath!!! It certainly didn't seem like there was a problem with the thickness of my lining and I also had periods every month whilst I had my Mirena in.

I'm trying to think of positive in case you hadn't guessed.... hmm

Hi im new to this but would like to ask a question, i had the mirena coil fitted for extremely heavy periods in February 2010, it worked rally well and had no periods for all the time i had it in place, i had it removed in April 2013 and had a couple days bleeding then nothing until June13th which was a normal period, ive not had any more periods since, done pregnancy test which was negative,
Please can anyone advise how long before my periods return to normal

Thanks

Hi nana it can take quite a while, mine have jut settled into being 34 day cycles after months of being anything from 26-40 days. I was previously 28 days on the dot.

I think getting to know when you ovulate is more important than your cycle length/irregularities. smile
