Conceiving after Depo and Mirena...

Ok, not sure if this is the place to post this, so please bear with me. I have been on BC since I was 18. I was on the depo shot from 2000 until 2006. After I stoped getting the depo treatments, I had very heavy bleeding for about a month, in order to help with this, I had a Mirena IUD inserted. I have been on this since 2006 and am curently on my 2nd IUD.

Yes. Before I was on BC I was very regular. I never had my period while on Depo or Mirena. Just worried the heavy bleeding is going to come back and I won't be able to conceive.
I have been pregnant before, but chose to end it due to being to young, I hope this is a good sign.

You might have some heavy bleeding when it's first taken out until your hormone levels are able to even out. It's hard to say how your body will react, some women are able to conceive right away while it can take a few months for others. It might be a good idea to track your cycle as you come off of it so you can see if you are ovulating and how long your cycles are. Did you have pretty regular cycles before you went on birth control?
