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?

I'm 25 years old I got IUD a month ago I have been having on my ovaries , stomach cramps, pain going down in my hip. had a ultrasound today doctor said there was fluid around my IUD took cultures and no infection. when I had a period huge clots came out. what could this be?

Okay, so I had the Paragard inserted about three weeks ago. Had some cramps and a pretty bad period right after insertion, but it went away, and I feel fine. I noticed when it was done that I was mildly constipated but that lasted only a couple days and finally went away. Well now it s a little worse and I m not sure what it s from. I m hoping it s not a problem with the IUD as I absolutely love it. I don t feel any pain or anything with it, but I need to ask. I have been constipated for nearly a week now. I had my two week checkup last week and since then, having a BM has been nearly impossible. I took a mild laxative today and it still isn t doing much for me. Could this be just my body reacting to the checkup? I know every time I go to the OB/GYN I get a little backed up, but never for this long.
