Pregnancy After Mirena

Getting pregnant after Mirena? Find out how long you should expect it to take to get pregnant after Mirena.

Mirena is an IUD that is chosen by many women as a form of birth control. It can be a great choice for a lot of women, since it provides a relatively low maintenance form of birth control that you don’t really have to worry about. It is a great choice for women who don’t want to have to worry about birth control every day and it is good for up to five years. But, the question is, what happens if you want to get pregnant after Mirena? Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Have Mirena removed

If you decide to get pregnant, your doctor will have to remove your Mirena IUD. Once Mirena is removed, the contraceptive effects of it should be immediately gone. The average is that around 80 percent of women that try to become pregnant become pregnant within a year of stopping use of Mirena. Most doctors do recommend that you wait at least one menstrual cycle before trying to get pregnant, just to let your body get back into its natural rhythm.

Mirena is safe to use

The truth is that most women have little to no issues getting pregnant after Mirena. It is probably one of the easiest birth control methods to get pregnant with after it is removed. Actually, a lot of women are surprised at how fast you can get pregnant after your IUD is removed. There is no reason to worry, however, if it takes a few months to get pregnant. Everyone is different, so keep that in mind. What other women experience is not necessarily what you will experience. But, keep in mind that there is no research to show that there is any risk of extended infertility when taking Mirena.

Talk with your doctor

Mirena is a great choice for extended birth control for a lot of women. It is easy to use, and once you have the IUD implanted, there is nothing to have to worry about after that. It can be a wonderful choice for many families. Plus, when you decide that you are ready to have a baby, Mirena is a great choice since you can usually get pregnant very quickly after stopping use. If you are considering contraception, but you know that you want to be a mom in the future, ask your doctor if Mirena is a good choice for you.

    I had my mirena removed on thurseday, I had sexual intercourse with my husband two days before removal, day of the removal and this weekend, it is now sunday and i have started some light spotting, could I have possibly gotten pregnant and still be spotting? I have searched and found out I could have gotten pregnant before removal because sperm lives for 5 days, is there any way I could be pregnant and still spotting or is it too early?? Thanks

    I’ve read on the Mirena website that after removal of one should wait about three months for the walls to thicken back up before trying to get pregnant, is it true? I have removed Mirena on October 9, 2013 soon after on the 13th I got my period. On November 22, 2013 we found out we were pregnant. Jus today, January 7, 2014 I had an ultrasound done and the doctor couldn’t find a heart beat in baby !! I’m supposed to be 12 weeks 2 days today. But when doctor measured baby, it measured at 10 weeks 3 days.

    so i got my mirena out nov 22 had af on the 24th of nov lasted 8 days. then i was 6 days late took a HPT and it was neg and then my af and then started it and it only last 3 days and wasnt as heavy as it normally is. what could it be? could it have been late IB and could that have been the reason for a neg? we are TTC and that isnt normal for me. i got my mirena out right around the time that my af was due and i had a regular period and then 6 days late for my next only to last 3 days and not heavy at all. like i could wear a tampon all day and be perfectly fine with out having to change it where i normally have to change my tampon 3 times a day at least.

    I had mine removed the 18th of December and have yet to have any signs of a menses. I think you can ovulate pretty soon after. Every woman is different. I work with a few women who are also in the same boat and became pregnant within the first month of having theirs removed!

    I have currently had my mirena in for 5 years I’m having it taken out on the 14th of feb and was going to have another one put in as my partner and I don’t want to start trying for another baby for at least two years. I’m worries if I have another one put in for at least another year I won’t be able to conceive?? I haven’t had a period at all since dec 09 should I leave it out and use another form of contreception till we decide we are ready to start trying for another??

    Question!! I had my iud removed three days ago (jan 27th) and before I had it removed I had what I thought was a period that lasted a sparatic three days, today I went to use the bathroom and I will spotting a bit but it was bright, I know it’s possible to bleed after it’s taken out but it’s three days later. Since I had it removed me and my fiancé have had unprotected sex several times and are trying to conceive. Could this spotting possibly be implantation??? If so how long should I wait for a test? This will be my fourth child. Thank so much in advance!!!!!!!

    Hey everyone! I just want to tell my story and see if anyone had similar experiences or what.

    I had my mirena for about 2 years. I had my period throughout that
    course quite regular. I recently got it removed on January 16th. I used
    an ovulation kit and tested for ovulation throughout the next week as my
    last period was January 6th. I got 2 postiive tests throughout that
    next week indicatiing that I was going to ovulate. My husband and did
    the deed many times throughout that next week. I never had any bleeding
    with my mirena removal that a lot of people did. My next period was
    expected around February 3rd. On the 3rd, i had lots of cramping and
    lower back pain, thinking that my period was oging to start. the 4th and
    5th, there was no cramping at all. On the 3rd,4th and 5th, I only
    spotted when I wiped and it was brown spotting. I have done a pregnancy
    test, and it came back negative. Perhaps I am testing too soon or what
    do you think. Responses would be great!! :Thanks
    Also people with similar situation, please respond too!! :)

    Hello-
    I got my Mirena removed on 01/21/2014 and got my Period on 01/23/2014 (it was definitely a full period, not spotting from the removal.) I had my Mirena in for 4 and a half years and, for the most part, continued to get my period every month, granted it was lighter. My husband and I are TTC and had sex every other day for the duration of my cycle. I am now on Cycle Day 28. My cycles are usually 23-26 days long (this was calculated while I was still on mirena.) My period has always been regular and I’ve never had problems with it. I’m still getting BFN on home pregnancy tests. Could Mirena have made my entire cycle shorter and that’s why I haven’t gotten my period yet? Or do you think I could be pregnant and just not getting a positive yet?

    Dana-
    I’m in the exact same position as you. I had my Mirena for 4 and a half years, got my period regularly while on it. I got it out Jan 21 and got a regular period on Jan 23 (it wasn’t spotting from removal, it was a full period) My husband and I did the deed every other day and every day around the day I ovulated. I am now on Cycle Day 28 (My cycles are usually 23-26 days long) I keep getting negative’s on my pregnancy tests too. I was wondering if you found out if you were pregnant or if something else was up.
    Thanks!

    I had Mirena removed in March 2014. I got my regular period in April on the 17th. Lasted 5 to 6 days. The month of May I am 6 days late, but on the 22nd I awaken to small amounts of bleeding and cramping… Is it possible that my body is still trying to regulate itself? My husband and I aren’t trying to conceive but we aren’t preventing it either. So confused right now. I’ve always had regular cycles. Help please!!!!!

    I’m just curious.. I understand every women is different. I had got Mirena in back in August 2012 hand had it removed June 11,2014. I want to know how soon I should typically start my period and my husband and I are trying for number 3. Problem is since being on Mirena after like 7 month my period stop so now I don’t know when I’m ovulating. Prob TMI but I’ve been keeping track and we have been intimate like every 2-3 days each week from the time I had my iud out. So can I assume that if no Aunt Flow by next month that I could start taking pregnancy tests?? And of course the obvious pregger symptoms.

    I was just wondering how things turned out for you.. I had my Mirena in on August 2012 and had it removed June 2014. My hubby and I had sex 3 days before removal and then like every two-three days since. Still no period and I don’t know when I’m ovulating since my periods stopped after like 7 months into using Mirena. I feel like if I don’t get my period by July 11th that I could start testing. What do you think??

    I removed my Mirena on June 9, 2014, had light bleeding for two days starting on the 11th. I didn’t notice my normal ovulation symptoms that month but also wasn’t tracking with OPKs or temps. I got a lighter than normal period on July 8 lasting 3 days. I have been having cramping, bloating, nausea and food aversions for over a week. My husband noticed the change and asked if I was pregnant. I have taken several tests, multiple brands and all were negative except one early result generic blue dye test that showed a faint but distinct line. My period isn’t due until August 5 and by normal calculations I should be ovulating right now if I’m not pregnant which is what the tests say. OPKs are continuing to come back negative every day. I’m at a loss! Any thoughts

    How high is the percentage of having twins after mirena has been removed? Mine was taken out in April 2014 I had one normal 7 day period in may in June I had spotting for 2 days and bleeding for 1 and a half. July my period is supposed to come this weekend but I took a hpt and it’s positive. This is my 3rd pregnancy and I already feel flutters. Could it be twins?
