  • Im not TTC but I had Mirena. My cycle went back to normal a few weeks after taking it out. And I mean normal.....I am having my periods at the same time of the month as I did Pre Mirena. Everyone might be different though.

  • I had my mirena out on Dec 17th and we have been ttc. I had a pretty long, heavy and exhausting period after it was taken out (my periods were absent too). I got really depressed a couple days after it was taken out, and I have heard for some women that is a big problem when it is taken out until the hormones get adjusted. I would do just a month or two before it depends on the person...some people are more fertile the first month after and some women need a month or two to regulate. But be aware that the doctor told me this isn't like other birth control where it is in your system a few days, once it is out it IS possible to get pregnant right away.

  • I have Mirena as well. I have it since July, I haven't had any periods either. But my doctor told me that when we would TTC that I shouldn't have any problem, she said it's usually your second cycle.
