I’m going in a couple of weeks to get my Mirena IUD taken out. How long did it take you to get pregnant after removal? I would like to start trying right away, but I understand that I should wait a full cycle. If it matters, we conceived our daughter on the third month trying…
You can start trying right away. The only reasons doctors sometimes say not to, is because it is handy (for them!) to know the date of your last period when you come in for prenatal care. Well, that’s why they invented ultrasounds, because you can also determine how far along you are that way, even better. There is no medical reason to wait.
It is POSSIBLE to conceive within the first month. Women on Mirena usually get their cycle back straight away after removal, not like the pill where it can take a few months. But that doesn’t mean you WILL get pregnant right away. The average 6-12 months it takes a healthy couple to conceive still applies.
I myself got my cycle back pretty much instantly when my Mirena was removed. It also was normal straight away, although ‘normal’ for me has always been pretty irregular. We have been TTC for 19 months now. It doesn’t always happen the way you plan, but having been on Mirena has nothing to do with it.
