Hi ladies,

I have been an Ivillage member for a LONG time. I am mom to 2 beautiful little girls (6 and 1 1/2 yrs) and step-mom to a 13 yo son. I look forward to getting to know you ladies and hopefully won't be here long...

I have an appointment to get my Mirena out on Oct. 20. It can't get here soon enough. Seriously!

Good Luck to everyone!

Hi! Have fun TTC! Welcome to the boards!

By the way... did the Mirena hurt when you got it put in? I hated being on the pill. Whenever we go back on birth control, I think I'd rather try Mirena, but it freaks me out a little. Can your man feel the strings and everything? If I'm asking too personal information, sorry. You definitely don't have to answer.

Good luck! Fingers crossed for a quick conception and healthy baby!

Welcome to the board! Meagh, wife to Dom and mommy to Elaine. I remember before I had my mirena taken out, it seemed like FORVER!!

My DH never made any mention of being able to feel the strings from the Mirena and I didn't even feel it when they put it in. You really do forget all about it lol. With that said, I wouldn't go back on the Mirena, I had too many issues with it, but I know for most women, they would do it again in a heartbeat

I have actually really enjoyed the Mirena. I have had both IUDs. I can't feel the strings. DH can sometimes, but it doesn't bother him. With the Paraguard I had really heavy long periods. With the Mirena it didn't hurt when I got it put in. Just felt like a pap. I only have very light spotting with it. Hope this helps. Any more questions feel free to ask!

Hey! I just had mine out on wed. Spotting yesterday and dr said if not pg I. Three months come back in! I know it felt like forever. But think of it this way it is an extra month to get your body ready. I have heard of ppl getting it out and two weeks later a positive. Good luck to u. I am also going for number three!

Thanks for answering about Mirena. I definitely need to consider things like that next year instead of the pill again.
