Pregnancy after Mirena

I'm having my Mirena taken out in December so we can start trying for our second baby in February, and I was wondering how long it took some of you to get pregnant after having the IUD. Should I take it out sooner, or closer to February. We really don't want to have a pregnancy before February. My OB/GNY said not to because it lowers the chance of another pre-term labor, which I had with my first child. By the time it's taken out I'll have had it for only 7 months.

  • I got pregnant 2 days later after having it taken out. I think you are smart to get it out in Dec. and wait until Feb. before trying. I didn't listen to my doctor & now I wish I had b/c he told me to wait until after I had a period before trying and since I didn't, I ended up having placenta previa. I did carry the baby full term and she turned out perfect, but the money I spent for a specialist, money I spent on medicine to keep the baby, the worry I had my whole pregnancy & the fact that I had complications delivering the placenta, was not worth it, so I've learned my lesson to listen to my doctor.
