Well, I know I have been majorly absent, but I swear I have a good reason!
Verizon internet is awful, that’s why. I just got my internet back approximately 10 minutes ago after not having it since toward the end of November! Glad to be back to the boards, especially since I’m having a hard time sharing all this TTC stuff with my friends and family… it’s not easy for me. I find it strange that those closest to me seem to be the ones I least want to talk to about all this…
Anyhow, I had my Mirena removed on November 28th (hooray!) after much debate with my Fiance. Nothing negative, just making sure that we were ready to just go for it. I started reading up on Mirena removals/pregnancy… and I was so freaked out by the things I was seeing… Complete horror stories of women who had horrendous cycles that lasted multiple weeks and drained their bank accounts to buy stock in Tampax products… SERIOUSLY?! I nearly cried.
I suppose I’m one of the lucky ones. While not uber lucky enough like some ladies to get pregnant IMMEDIATELY after Mirena removal (wah), I did get right back to my cycle 30 days after removal and while it was heavier than normal, it wasn’t anything out of a horror flick.
I started using an Android App called “My Days” so I can keep track of absolutley everything… despite my Fiance being semi-creeped out that I’m keeping a log of our sex life and my cycles on my cell phone. According to my app, today is my first day of the high fertility streak, with ovulation set to occur on the 7th.
The tricky thing is I only have the one ovary remaining, so doc says I won’t ovulate every month… oh well, we will just treat every month as though I’m going to ovulate! 🙂
Any experience with TTC after Mirena is appreciated, and HI TO ALL-so glad to be able to talk to you again 🙂
