How soon after Mirena IUD removal did you ovulate?

Hey guys, I had my IUD removed this cycle and the nurse said my fertility should return fairly quickly. I've been testing for ovulation using OPK since CD8 just to learn my cycle and currently CD12 with no signs of ovulation yet, I know its still fairly early but Flo app predicted ovulation yesterday so now I'm wondering if I'll even ovulate this cycle. What are your experiences with returning fertility after coil removal.

It took 90 days for me to ovulate for the first time post removal and over the 11 months since its got gradually shorter until now I’ve got a 35 day cycle. I have got PCOS which might have some impact on that time frame!

90 days isn't so bad compared to other forms of contraception really, I'm just being impatient as ive wanted to ttc for a couple of years but only just got the courage to get my coil removed.

I can understand that! Hope it all happens quickly for you- I know fertility returns quickest from the coil so you’re ahead of the game there - and lots of people find it’s instant so fingers crossed that’s you. We’re going to start TTC In January and I’m desperate 😂

I ovulated about 3 weeks after my mirena removal. I had a break through bleed a couple of days after removal for 5 days and then ovulated 2 weeks after that.
Please ignore flos predictions! It’ll drive you nuts and is just a rough guess. I have a 27-30 day cycle and ovulate around days 16-18, which I wouldn’t have known without BBT.
I am now on cycle 10, which is a bit shit but I have endometriosis so not entirely unexpected. But from bloods and scans, I am ovulating so my mirena hasn’t caused any issues there.
Good luck! X

I had mine removed on the 21st January, and baby was born 2nd December same year - and she was 2 weeks late, so it must have been within a few weeks of having it removed

@CRbear Thank you! And good luck with ttc next year!
@Woaaaahnelly Oh really! Thanks for the heads up about the app and sorry to hear its taking a while for you, and I hope you get your bfp soon!
@NothingIsWrong I'm hoping for a similar story to yours! I'm just getting myself worked up as the app said I should of ovulated but I'll just have to see how things go as its litteraly been 6 days haha

I didn't. I had to have my periods medically restarted after nearly a year.

I had the Mirena coil removed in late April 2015 and fell pregnant in the August of that year. I was 41 at the time, though this was my third DC.

I had my Jaydess coil (3 year one) removed 3 weeks ago. I had regular periods on the coil so out of interest took ovulation tests while I was still on it and it suggested I was ovulating (is definitely possible but don't know how accurate it would be while on it). I've been testing the last couple of weeks and no peak yet so I'm guessing my body is adjusting after having it removed. But then I was also taking Pregnacare vitamins which can affect your cycle which I've stopped now so I don't know... so many variables it drives me insane!
Just gonna wait for AF and see! Would be interested to know how you get on too!
