suritababyy:  I would base the decision on when I wanted to get pregnant again, not to fit in your dress. When do you plan to have your next child?

I’m basically your fear lol. We had miscarried a few months ago and since it took me almost a year to conceive I decided I didnt want to go back on bc until the wedding was closer (oct 15) well after one cycle, buying a dress, and paying for our cruise wedding in full I found out I’m pregnant. I’m really excited however unlike your dilemma I will still have almost 6 months after to work on getting back to dress size. I would say maybe start trying a little closer to the wedding that way if you do get pregnant it would be too early to really affect your size.

Why doesn’t he want you to put it back in?  Have you agreed to immediately start trying for a baby?  If so it maybe does make sense to not put it back in and use a different birth control method.  If not, and its your preferred method put it back in!

I would suggest doing some research with him regarding your Mirena IUD. Theoretically, if you were able to get pregnant before using the IUD, you should be able to get pregnant again after it is removed.

The IUD isn’t meant to be a short-term form of birth control, so I wouldn’t just get another one if you’re only planning to have it removed in a few weeks or months.

I would not replace an IUD to just have it in for a few months. Use non-latex condoms or birth control pills, or talk to your doctor about your options if you don’t want to become pregnant right away.

I agree with the two above posters – it doesn’t make sense to get another IUD if you’ll only have it in for seven months. I had my IUD removed before our wedding and went on the pill until we were ready to start TTC. That way you’ll have complete control over when you go off it anyway, rather than having to wait for a removal appointment.

Mirena works after the expiry for a year +, so a few months would be fine – just leave it in.  Confirm that with your doctor though!

get another form of birth control or don’t have sex.

suritababyy:  I agree with PP regarding finding another method of BC. I don’t think there is much risk of infertility with the IUD, but just the fact that you wouldn’t have it in for long doesn’t seem worth it. Consult your doctor, I’m sure they would have many options for you. And in reality, you’d only really have to worry about finding an effective  BC for like Oct-Feb/March.

Your body, your choice. Get the IUD if you want it… and tell your FI that unless he plans to be the one to get pregnant, you’ll wait until March. 🙂
