Wow am still on the path to pregnancy, and really cant believe it after the year me and dh have had but it seems like the right thing to do.

Ideally I dont want to be pg until december/january.

I need to get my mirena taken out, and gp says that fertility returns to normal immediately. Anyone any experience of this?

Do we start trying properly straight away (knowing my luck it will happen, ive only got to sit next to a man without any protection and Im pg grin) or wait until i know my cyle and start trying in december

any advice would be great smile

Hi Mosschops30, I had my Mirena taken out 25th April and was pregnant by June only having one period inbetween. Sadly I MC 2 weeks ago so am back to TTC now.

Good luck

oh lully, I am sorry sad. I will keep my fingers crossed for you xx

ok not much of a gap then, maybe I'll have it taken out end september, wait a couple of months then try december/january.

Do you have any other dc's? And if so did you get pg easily with them?

Thanks MS, yes i have a 2 year old DS who was conceived after about 3-4 months. He wasnt exactly planned but came as a pleasent surprise. I am just hoping that this time will be a quick but i know you can just never tell.

How long did it take with your other 2 DCs?

mosschops30 Mon 04-Aug-08 14:32:37

dd i caught straight away, same with ds really as soon as we stopped being careful he appeared.
You can bet ur ass that because we are actually planning this one it will take forever or maybe never happen at all, usually the way sad
fingers crossed for both of us ttc smile

Hiya Mosschops30,I had my mirena out on 10th July, ready to start ttc dc2. Is this your first time with a mirena?

I had my Mirena out on Friday last week and have been bleeding quite a lot since yesterday. Is this normal? My period wasn't due for another couple of weeks and we are hoping to get pregnant asap (3rd baby).
GP said it could happen straight away but wasn't expecting the bleeding and now worried......

Hi Frazzledoldbag34, i had my mirena taken out during my period but it continued for about 2.5 weeks and was more heavier then normal. My GP said that beeding is normal and not to worry. Good lunck with TTC,

mosschops30 Tue 05-Aug-08 12:54:39

Yes tis my first time ttc after the mirena. I dont have any periods on it so difficult to know how my cycle is until its taken out, which is why i think maybe I should get it removed sooner rather than later.

Good luck all smile

Could you not have it taken out and use other means of contraception until December or when you are ready to TTC again?

frazzledoldbag34 Tue 05-Aug-08 15:42:36

thanks Lully. Am guessing this is just 'withdrawl' bleed from the mirena hormones? So hopefully will be pg soon (always immediately pg with my other 2 so here's hoping).

So sorry Lully to hear about your MC - fingers crossed for a successful pg very soon for you.
Lots of lovely summer babies for all of us next year.........hopefully!

other contraception = no sex for dh until december wink

Hi, I have one child, and had the mirena removed June 07, and still not in a cycle, have been waiting patiently, but nothing happened, have started trying ovulation kits, which seem promising this month, but I have heard that some people get pregnant straight away after the mirena removal, sounds like you might be one of those lucky ones! I wil keep my fingers crossed for you.
