Mines bad so ore warning you before you read

I have 3 children with ex’s 22,18,13

I had Mirena 2005 then next one 2010

Married my now husband 2014 has it removed sept 2014

I was 44

Fell pregnant Jan 2015
Blood test confirmed it

TTC immediately fell preg 14th Feb 2015

7 weeks has very bad hemorghing has scans seems I was having twins and lost one

Advised bedrest

Hemorghed 8 week 9 week 10 week

Baby was fine

Solid bedrest

Hemoraghing wasn’t explained

I had a huge bump could feel baby moving from 10 weeks

12 week scan baby me all 100%
Genetic blood tests all 100% worries as age

14 week scan 100% was under consultant as age

16 week scan it was a girl she was 100% normal moving waving

19.5 weeks I started to feel awful
Couldn’t eat 104 temp wouldn’t walk slept 18-20 hours a day
Consultant GP midwife all said pregnancy sickness
I said it’s not consultant prescribe me anti sickness meds I never took

20’weeks my waters broke they were brown
Went to hospital a doctor knew immediately I was very very ill

I had sepsis and can’t ghvw both as cervix won’t open
They left me 2 days in labour ward trying to induce me and in the end I was rushed into threater
I lost Lily 2 litres blood ended up in intensive care 2 placlet transfusions
6 blood unit transfusions

Discharged on to new born maternity unit !

Then 4 weeks later I started hemorghing again loads this was for 2 months until last time ambulance rushed me into resuss

It’s found if you ah w Mirena too long your body gets confused = hemoraghing
It only stopped as I had to have another and it’s still in

Thank you for your reply, I'm so sorry for the bad time you had it must of been awful, I've only had minera in for 6 months so I'm hoping it's not really effected my body much

All you can do is see but only 6 months in and younger than I was your probaky not at so much risk
Facebook has lots ttc groups
I did temp charts and clear blue ovulation sticks think that’s how I fell so quickly
Good luck

I had my mirena coil for 3 years, then conceived within a month of it being removed. Good luck!

I had three mirena coils over ten years, had the last removed and got pregnant the following month. No issues although I'd expected to have to wait a while for my periods to return.

Thank you all for replying smile

Had the mirena removed about 28th December and fell pregnant straight away. I’m now almost 11 weeks.
I had it in about a year and a half too.
I’ve had issues with bleeding with this pregnancy however it’s due to having a subchorionic hematoma.
Good luck! smile

I’ve had 3 Mirena gutted back to back. Removed last one in August 2016, started ttc January 2017, pregnant late May 2017. Sat here now with 6 week old on my lap. Took a short while for my periods to return, and were light and short all the time I was ttc (they had stoped completely

NoSuchThing Wed 14-Mar-18 02:05:39

..sorry... periods had stopped completely whilst I had the Mirena in. Good luck with ttc, remember to take a pain killer (paracetamol or ibuprofen) before removal.

We conceived 3 months after coil removal.
It had been in for 4.5 years previously and my periods had stopped completely.
Little one is now asleep on me and is almost 3 months old. :-)

With my first pregnancy I’d had a coil for 4 years, had it removed and caught pregnant within 6 weeks.

For pregnancy number two I’d had the coil in for two years and then conceived a month after it was removed. That pregnancy unfortunately ended in a miscarriage though 2-3 weeks after getting my BFP.

Thank you so much for everyone giving me hope I think it's more scary for me as it's a new partner, so a completely new journey, without boring you all I came out of a 26 year extremely verbally abusive relationship and my current partner was literally my saviour so now we have decided to add to our family it's very exciting but scary at the same time
