I had the Mirena inserted in July of 2007 when my son was just 6 weeks old. I had it removed a few weeks ago on November 10. My sister in law has had 3 miscarriages which she fully blames on the Mirena. I asked my dr if it increased the chances of miscarriage and she told me no, but I have read lots of terrible stories about miscarriages, chemical pregnancies or not being able to get pregnant for a long time after removal. My dr said to take a prenatal vitamin for 6 weeks and to use condoms in the meantime. She said she would also like for me to have a period before I get pregnant. I have spotted here and there (mostly brown) so I am wondering how long did it take after Mirena for you to get a period? I have never been so anxious to get mine! Did you have a period before you tried to get pregnant? My son will be 4 in May and I really really would love to have a baby by October or early November. Thanks for the input ladies!
