So here is the deal: prior to having my first son I had a mirena IUD in for 4.5 years. During those 4.5 years I never had a period. I got the IUD taken out and the doc said I wouldn't be fertile until I had a period. I found out I was pregnant very soon afterward (which the symptoms I thought were my first period). They put me at getting pregnant 9 days after IUD removal with no period first.
I had a new mirena IUD put in when my son was six weeks. I have not had a period and I am breastfeeding as well. Our son turns 1 september 25th and we wanted to get the IUD out end of september or early october.
The doctor said breastfeeding can make it hard to concieve and just because it will be after I had an IUD that it could be hard to concieve. I have not had a period in almost 6 years so I can't track those...and I don't know about the breastfeeding.....
So I guess I am wondering should I take it out now....but then I am lik
