I had Mirena in and wanted to get it removed to try during our honeymoon. After a lot of thought, I decided it was better to wait because I didn’t want to risk being extra crabby or emotional in the stressful days leading up to the wedding. I didn’t have a month long period when I did get it taken out, but I was a bit more weepy! I had a couple of months of spotting periods, a full normal period, and then I got pregnant. I don’t regret not getting it taken out to try on the honeymoon at all! I was still very pregnant for our 1 year wedding anniversary.

I removed my Mirean a few months ago because of some side effects I didn’t like, but I did go back on another birth control immediately following. I didn’t have any “crash” or any side effects whatsoever to switching, but I also never have been affected by any hormonal things or PMS or anything.

@Waitingbee57: Personally, i would wait. You never know how your body will react when coming off BC.  The alternative is to have it removed a few months before, but even then it’s unpredictable how long it will take for your body to get back to normal.

@Waitingbee57:  I agree with other bees that it is wise to wait.  You could end up having side effects AND no pregnancy.  I would wait until I got home.  To me, being able to say my child was concieved on the honeymoon isn’t worth also remembering the honeymoon for my mood swings and unpredictable bouts of crying.  I am very sensitive to horomes though.

I was debating taking out my mirena b4 I got married and I’m really glad I didn’t.  My first period after the Mirena was taken out was TERRIBLE.  I kept gushing blood and if I didn’t do some research online i would have probably gone to the ER!  It would lighten up and then all of a sudden I would bleed through everything (very embarressing) and I often woke up in a pool of blood. (sorry if TMI!)

I never had the Mirena emotional crash at all- but the last thing you want is to feel like crap during your wedding or honeymoon.  I got mine out a few weeks after our honeymoon so it really only put us back a few months.  Good luck!

@Waitingbee57:  If you really want to try on the honeymoon, why not remove it earlier and use a backup method (condoms, I know, who wants to, but it’s a thought!). Otherwise I’d wait. Going off BC (nuvaring for me) was a NIGHTMARE the first month and I would NOT want to be dealing with that on my wedding day!

@Waitingbee57:  I had my IUD removed on day 2 of my cycle (my period arrived the evening prior to the appointment!) and my period, according to my chart, was 10 days that month. I normally have longer periods (minimum 7 days, max 10 days) so that wasn’t atypical for me. I didn’t have any emotional side effects at all. The only difference I noticed was that the month afterward I ovulated a few days earlier than usual. I had absolutely zero problems and the removal was a lot easier than the insertion! Mild cramping only, and two Advil did the trick.

@Waitingbee57:  yeah that was my other fear too! I had no give on my wedding dress so I couldn’t afford to be pregnant on the wedding day. I am super duper glad now that I didn’t take the chance because I was as sick as a dog and much chubbier pretty much right after I got pregnant. I also thought that it would cute and fun to try on the honeymoon and sweet that my husband wanted to, but getting pregnant a couple of months after really still was cute and fun.

Waitingbee57:  Mirena causes all kinds of side effects, hormonal imbalances, estrogen dominance, silicona and copper toxicity, etc. I recommend everyone who is serious about stopping all their unbearable side effects to watch the video on this page: mirenadetox
