TTC after MIRENA anyone??

Hello :)...I am Meresa (30)...I have DH Chris (30) and DD Andrea (5) and DD Aleah (3)...I am TTC #3 and our last :)...hoping for a little boy but happy with whatever God wants me to have :)...My first was an accident, my second was the first cycle after Paraguard, and now I am on cycle #2 after Mirena...I had to go on the BCP to regulate my cycle. I have to honestly say I don't think I will ever get the Mirena ever again. I am about to start AF here in about 4 days and I know I'm not getting a BFP so if anyone would like to walk this journey with me then feel free to join in :)...I will be on CD1 probably around the 11th...can't wait to try really hard this cycle...armed with Fertilaid, Preseed, lots of internet ovulation and pregnancy tests!

I am getting my Mirena IUD out today! I to am 30 DH is 33 an this will be our 4th and last child. DS Keegan(11) DS Kaiden(6) and DD Layla(3). I'm not really sure what to expect, it took no effort to get preg with my other children, but i did not have an IUD. Ive heard a few mirena users mention the use of clomid? I'm just excited to be getting the ball rolling!

I'm trying herbal supplements first. I'm trying Fertilaid now...if I run out before it works then I'm going with Vitex and regular prenatals (much cheaper)...I've never had a problem ovulating in the past...both my girls were quick but this last cycle I ovulated just way early in my cycle...it actually took my off guard and I didn't BD in the right spot SO we have the thermometer and the ovulation tests and we are hoping to catch it this time :)...good luck to you...I've heard many stories about the getting the IUD out but for me personally it wasn't very pleasant coming out and the Mirena crash afterwards was a little rough emotionally for a couple of days...I hope like some it doesn't hurt for you and you have no crash...If I manage to conceive this last baby I think I'm going back to the Paraguard again...I actually liked that IUD and return to fertility was quick!! Good luck to you...let me know how it goes :)

Yeah! its out! it wasn't that bad. He told me that the second it is taken out i'm not protected. That I could get pregnant any time. I'm hoping to be one of those that gets pregers right away!

Hi I too had the Mirena ! Only kept it for about a year, then went back to Ortho Tri Cyclen...i would say i have been off birth control for about 6 months now and have been trying for the last 3 months; however, i havent done the best job of tracking my ovulation - this month my husband and I are really set on making sure we're following my ovulation cycle to a T...last month we were hoping were pregnant - my cycle was late (which it NEVER is) so now i'm skeptical on if this has thrown off my cycle - so I'm a litle lost in the sauce right now and trying not to be discouraged... but now we're ready for #2!!!

Have you used Fertilain in th past? I'm never heard of this before. At this point - I'm a little frurstrated with the "getting pregnant" process and getting an extra little boost doesn't hurt.

I conceived my first child while on birth control - this time around - it's quite different.

Is this something you can get at a local store or do you have to get it online?

Thanks!

I am wondering, if the bleeding I am having since the IUD was removed should be counted as a period? I did not have a period while I had mirena but since wed when i had it removed I have bleeding like what I would call a light period. Should I count this as a period?

Hi, I conceived my younger son in one cycle after having my Mirena removed. I had bleeding right after having my Mirena removed that in retropect I know was not a real period because the ultrasounds showed that I was about a week behind what was expected. I did have a complication that I think was caused by Mirena--I had a mild placental abruption in the first trimester that one doctor theorized came about because I didn't wait for my uterine lining to improve before trying to become pregnant. My son is here and beautiful but at the time of the abruption the doctors only gave my pregnancy a 50/50 chance. I have a Mirena again and am considering TTC--if we decide to go ahead this time I will wait an extra cycle before trying.

I've been on the mirena for just over a year, but am having it removed in the next couple of weeks. My NP has also said that fertility returns immediately since it does not stop ovulation. I've only had one period but twice I've had a couple days of spotting, so I have no idea what my cycle is like. I did have some ovarian cysts a few months after getting the iud and I can tell every few weeks, I feel different: slight cramps off to the side, different mucous, so I assume I'm ovulating regularly. I've never done any charting or temps. Last time, we got pregnant my 2nd cycle off the pill so we never got to the point where I felt like I needed to "work" at it. I plan to do the same this time. I did kinda start noticing changes in CM last time, so I might pay attention to that, but I'm hoping to avoid stressing and micro managing as long as I can. With any luck, we'll get knocked up quickly! I'd be really happy if I didn't have to deal with periods and cramps and such for too long. Not looking forward to that side of ttc!

Can anybody else tell me about the removal? Having it inserted was pretty rough since I had to have a c section and never got to dilate more than a 3. Is it easier coming out?

Manda :)
