@soontobeGray:  I didn’t have the Mirena, I had Paragard.  But mine didn’t hurt AT ALL to take out.  I was all tense and preparing for it to hurt like a mofo but I squeezed my eyes shut, felt a pinch and then nothing.  My OB said, “Look!” and he was holding it up and it was out.  No way near as painful as I thought it would be.  

As for getting your cycles back to normal, I would think about as long as it takes for people to get back to normal after any hormonal BC.  Some people ovulate right away, some take 3 months, some take up to a year.  There’s no way to know how long it will take you that I know of, which is currently driving me crazy.  I would start charting at least your temp so you can find out if you’re ovulating, this is the route I’m going too.  Fertilty Friend is a good website/app to do so, and they have tutorials to teach you all about it.

Some people lay with a pillow under their butt or legs up after DTD, things I’ve read said it doesn’t help but can’t hurt either.  

Hope that helps and good luck! 🙂

I get heavy periods, that are sometimes very painful, i was given the name “Lysteda” by my GYN.  I didn’t get an RX…because I’d wait and see….plus we plan to TTC soon anyways.


Good luck!

@soontobeGray:  I had Mirena and I will say that having it out did not compare to having it put it. Taking it out did have a second of cramping, and a few really small cramps throughout the day. Having that sucker put in… Well, we both know what that was like. Night and day! 

2. I’ve never had issues with my period so not much help here. 

3. We’re not TTC. But I will say that I had it out in January and did not get a period until 30 days later, which is when I started charting. I don’t know if I ovulated in that window, but I definitely did ovulate the first month I charted. Theoretically, we could have gotten KU then I do believe. But we have only TTC’ed one month since February and it was a no go.

4. Generally, they say any positions that have him ejaculating near your cervix will do the trick.

@soontobeGray:  I had a friend who took hers out to TTC!

She apparently had the longest, WORST period of her life. Her husband said to my husband “25 days and counting…”

I think she bled for like 30 days? It was rough.

But then he chickened out! So they’re still waiting to TTC.

I had my Mirena removed in April after 4.5 years. Removal was a breeze, doesn’t even hold a candle to insertion.

My periods returned and were regular. As farms the heaviness goes, mine were lighter than pre-Mirena. I managed cramps and whatnot with ibuprofen.

I had 3 regular cycles before we decided to TTC. We got pregnant on our first try, baby due in April 2014.

Good luck!

@soontobeGray:  Since you mentioned endo, I would look into diet recomendations. Google search alkaline/acidicity ph levels; women with endo tend to be more on the acidic side which coudl hurt fertility.May or may not apply to you, but it wouldnt hurt to look into to!

Stay hydrated, you want healthy cervical mucus that will carry the sperm– we just started TTC this month and I think I hurt our chances of a positive BFP due to the fact that I’ve been taking vitamin C tablets, which are known to  ‘dry up’ cervical mucus. 🙁 boo!!
