Getting pregnant after Mirena ?

I got the mirena iud put in Oct of 07 and taken out Dec of 08...Since Dec weve been trying to get pregnant and its just not happening and im really starting to think something is wrong!!! My periods are right on time every month starting on the 12-13 every month - -they are more regular now then theyve ever been and im still not pregnant. Im wondering if its from the mirena or something else? Any advice would be nice! Thank you

You need to see your doctor.  I had the Mirena in for nearly 3 years.  I had it removed 14 months ago because the FDA FINALLY made Bayer Pharm release the real side effects, and I was experiencing them all.  In April 09 the FDA filed a cease and desist against Bayer to stop all print, television, and internet advertising unless they disclosed ALL side effects.  Did Bayer disclose side effects, no!  Instead they just chose to stop advertising.  We have been trying to conceive for 12 months, and I just found out Thursday that I am infertile; thank you Mirena.  I have a 4 year old daughter, but had always planned to have more.  I am heart broken that I may never have more children.

No. It is not related to Mirena. wait for some more time. see a doc if you have still not conceived by December. I conceived after 11 months of iud removal and know of some friends who have conceived almost a year after stopping OCPs.Good that your periods are regular so nothing serious to bother about.

6 to 12 months may be a normal time frame in which you may not be able to conceive after getting the iud out.what does your gyne say?wait for a few months is what i can recommend.

Nothing to worry at this stage.You may be hitting the anxiety button so stay calm.I have known cases where it has taken more than 12 months after stopping mirena.Stress and anxiety may lower your chances of conceiving so you may try some relaxation techniques and breatjing exercises.

Tomorrow i will being going to my gynecologist to talk to him about removing my mirena so i can conceive by the mid to end of march. I have a few questions for you . 1, i am 17 is he allowed to tell my mother that i am trying to conceive or does patient confidentiality apply? 2, after having mirena removed what is the likely hood that i will get pregnant in the next 2 months? 3, i need to know the complications and risks that could happen when i do get pregnant . i read that the best and safest ages to have your baby is 17 - 35. I know what i am getting myself into responsibility and financial wise so please don t lecture me about trying to have a baby . i just need to know how i can make this the safest pregnancy possible at my age . Oh and i quit smoking cigarettes today , so is this early enough that i made it safer to carry the baby. I did not smoke a pack a day or anything it was just like a pack a week sometimes not even having one for one to two weeks.

I have the I D Mirena for 6 months now. It was reinserted after my 5 years. I have always had my periods on time every month. This month my period was due around about the 2nd give or take a day or 2. I never got it. A week after it was due I started getting period like cramps, headaches, lower back cramps and some nausea. Today is about 2 weeks late and I had a negative hp test last week. Is it possible that I could be pregnant with the IUD?

hi I have had the mirena for 1 1/2 years and I have been bleeding on and off for a month with bad pain and pass clots from time to time. I went to the doctor last week and they could not find my iud. so they ordered a pelvic ultra sound im waiting for my results but what do you think it could be causing this pain and clotting? my pregnancy test was negative and also for infections.

I've had my IUD since March (it was put in during the week of my period while on BCPs) of this year. Everything had been fine since the insertion. I haven't had more than the occasional spotting. Today/Last night I noticed that my central abdomen, between my belly button and the top of my pubic hair is tender when pressed like I was having an exam. I did have sex back at the end of October (two months ago) but he did not finish inside me. My strings are still in place and it only bothers me when I press on it.

I currently have a mirena IUD and have had it for a year and a half. I had unprotected sex 2 days after my period ended. Before that it had been over a year since I have had sex. I got extremely nauseous about 5 days later. Had diarrhea and started to feel a tingle sensation in my boobs. Let me say that the period I had before I had sex was extremely heavy and the first I had in a long time. Now about a week before my period is due (if I even get one because of my IUD) im not sick anymore. Have as much energy as I should with a 4 and 2 year old. Im getting thick white discharge and the normal odor that a female gets. Now my boobs feel bigger but dont really hurt. I have taken 2 pg tests and both negative but could be to early. Possible im pregnant?

Hi I m Maggie a mom of two children one is two next month and my younger sis four months, I have the mirena iud I got it on February 13, my partner and I are sexually active for 8 weeks and I bleed after every time and now I have sharp abdominal pain around my belly button, I also have a history of ovarian cysts. So I m not sure if that s what wrong or if something else. I checked for strings and I don t feel them, but I never could after it was placed. Really wondering what cause I m worried I may be pregnant again cause I was on birth control after I had my daughter and she was fully breastfed like my son is now and I still got pregnant.
