Thanks for the query.

Mirena is a soft, flexible IUD that releases small amounts of hormone locally into your uterus. It gives you birth control for up to 5 years.

You can try to become pregnant as soon as Mirena is removed. Within a year of having Mirena removed, about 8 out of 10 women succeed at becoming pregnant.

Amenorrhea develops in approximately 20% of Mirena users by one year. The possibility of pregnancy should be considered if menstruation does not occur within six weeks of the onset of previous menstruation. Once pregnancy has been excluded, repeated pregnancy tests are generally not necessary .

I recommend you to get a USG done for ET-endometrial thickness.
Consult your doctor for menstrual regulation.
