@guitargirl:  Like the pill, there is a hormone in Mirena, so your body does have to “regulate.” If your temperatures are unclear, you could be having anovulatory cycles even if your periods are coming regularly – it’s possible. But, there are a lot of other (more likely) reasons your temperatures are unclear also. First, you could have the obvious – a faulty thermometer or one that needs new batteries. Consider purchasing a brand new one and/or changing batteries. You could have irregular sleeping patterns, the best solution I’ve found to that is temping at the same time every day – within no more than five minutes – and seeing what happens. You could be mouth breathing at night, in which case you should try temping vaginally.

If all else fails, you could try using a secondary ovulation detector such as ovulation predictor kits or fertility monitors. That will clue you in on hormone changes in your body. The only way to know for sure you ovulated is 7DPO progesterone tests, in which case you would need to get with your doc.

Best of luck =)

@guitargirl:  Also, this isn’t what you want to hear, but I have a friend that conceived “normally” (unmedicated, naturally, and relatively quickly) with her first two pregnancies. For her third pregnancy (after Mirena) it took her two years to conceive, but she was AMA and fully contributes that to her infertility, not her Mirena. She did end up conceiving though!
