birth control!

hello everyone,
I'm having a bit of a problem.
my husband and i have been trying to conceive for the past 10months on...........
and still nothing no happy happy baby news..

now here's the thing i already have two children.
so i dont necessarily think that it's that problem.
i was on mirena birth control from Oct 2009 till march of 2010 so not very long.
i didnt like it at all.
it hurt like hell i felt it.
my husband said h even felt it.
so i go and have the check up and they said the string was missing!!!

so my question was- where the hell did it disappear too?
they didn't know i didn't have any infections.
i had it removed and we tried right after that!

like i said i am still not pregnant!
i went to my doctor and they wanted me to go for test well my health insurance doesn't cover it so i cant have it done...
it was just to see if my tubes are blocked.

on the other hand when we first started to try,
we got ovulation test! and as most of you may know they are not cheap!!!!
we did it for id say about 5 months.
i also went on and i went by their ovulation chart! so it is pretty accurate.
but i did the test according to the chart from and the test said i wasn't ovulating so stupid me but an actual smart move.
Ive decided to take 1 test every-morning.
for the next 4months.
well little did i know i never said i was ovulating-
and with that i was also doing basil temp's as well.

i stand here today still without a pregnancy!

now my question to cafe mom member's is.
did anyone have that type of birth control?
and have the problems that i am experiencing?

Ive been told from other mothers that its a horrible form of birth control and it takes a long time to get pregnant after it is removed...
i just hope it happens soon..

now the mirena add says that you can get pregnant as soon as it is removed...
so whats my problem!? I'm curious.....
thy say when you try to get pregnant it doesn't happen.
so weve decided to just go with the flow and have sex....

  • So you haven't been ovulating? You can't get pregnant without ovulating. There are meds you can take to force your body into ovulation, if that's the problem. Bring this up with your doctor.

  • The Mirena ad also says it can cause you to become INFERTILE. It could just be time, though. That BC is just awful, good luck!
