What kind of IUD do you have? I had a copper one and my cycle was completely normal while it was in and after it was removed. No trouble getting pregnant afterwards – have a fab 3 month old son now.

I had the Mirena placed 6 years ago after birth of my child. But I had trouble adapting to the Mirena (bad bad cramps) so I got it removed after a year of consistent monthly cramps. I too was curious if there was problems women experienceed after removal. But I figure if there was any damage done by the device it would have healed after 5 years. I do get recurrent bacterial infections and thought there might be a correlation between the device and infections because I never got them before this device was implanted. We will TTC in the next few months, hoping all goes well but there is a little voice in my head about previously having that Mirena in…even though that was 5 years ago. Good luck…my child will be 7 when we TTC so I understand both the excitement and anxiety.

My best friend had the Mirena, got it out, then got pregnant within 6 months. She wasn’t “scheduling” her pregnancy, it just happened pretty quickly and easily. For what that’s worth!

I had my Mirena removed in April after 4.5 years, charted for 3 months, and got pregnant on our first cycle TTC in July. My best friend had hers removed in February after 2 years and was pregnant again in April. No issues here!

I had Mirena almost four years.  I had it taken out last January, and got a period 31 days later which is totally normal for me but I can’t say for sure if I ovulated that month because I had read a lot of women get a period a week or so later. So I didn’t start charting until I got a period. I did ovulate right after that. We didn’t TTC until December though, but we got a BFP on the second try in January! 

FWIW I’d I’d not have periods on Mirena, but would spot once or twice a year.

I had Mirena and had no trouble conceiving after I got it out. It took awhile to get a full regular period after I got it out – a couple of months – but I hadn’t had any periods on it. I got pregnant the month after my first period. I had 2 Mirenas over 8 years.
