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.

Hi Kimmi, welcome to the group. I've never heard of women having heavier bleeding after getting the Mirena removed, however every woman is different. Did they have any idea why you were having heavy bleeding prior to the Mirena getting put in? I wouldn't think it would affect your chances of TTC, unless there is an underlying reason why you had the heavy bleeding in the first place. Some women seem to have heavier flow and it doesn't mean anything is wrong.

I hope you can get pg quickly and hopefully you'll get all of your questions answered that you have. GL and welcome to the group!

Thank you. The Dr's original thought on the heavy bleeding was just that my body was trying to get back to normal after being on Depo for so many years.
Just hoping everything is normal in a fair amount of time so we can continue TTC.
