TTC after Mirena?

DH and I have finally decided for sure....we want another baby!

I am just so happy DH has agreed...for awhile he was on the fence about a third child. We have a 5 and 7 year old. One boy, one girl.

We are thinking of beginning to TTC in December....The reason for the wait is b/c my DD will then be enrolled in Kindergarten and the new baby would be born, in the fall of next year, when the kids are back in school. Plus we are moving to a new house this Summer and will need time to settle in. 

I am nervous about TTC after having Mirena for the last 5 years. I concieved both my children within a month of deciding to get pregnant. I know for many people it takes much longer....and I have heard of horror stories of infertility after Mirena. I plan to have it removed soon and use condoms until time to get pregnant. That way my cervix has time to thicken back up, and my cycle can become normal again.

Does anyone have any promising stories of getting pregnant after Mirena? Seems like you only hear the bad ones...

I just don't know how I will make it until December to start trying! DH and I sat up for hours last night talking about baby names!!! lol

Oh and FYI I decided to post annon b/c I have nosey family on this site...who don't need to know I am TTC until I am pregnant...lol

 Well mine was in a shorter time than yours, mine was just over 2 years but I got pregnant a month after it was removed. We decided to TTC in Sept, got it removed the end of that month, I let my body regulate for 1 month after and then month after that I was pregnant. I am now 21 weeks with a baby girl! I know there are some bad stories and I think the fact that I also got my period back while on the Mirena (and even while nursing) helped my body regulate faster. It is a good idea to give your body a few months and you should be fine. GL!

Thanks! I think one of the main things that worries me is the fact that I have not had a cycle in 5 years. I just hope everything goes back to normal when I get it taken out. LOL.

All of the bad things you hear now about Mirena, were not being said when I got this put in.

I had my Mirena removed in May (not to TTC) and my period didn't return until November.  So I'd guess that if I had been TTC, I wouldn't have even been fertile for the first 6 months.

I was pregnant within 5 days of it being taken out. I miscarried at 8 weeks and conceived again a month later.

Congrats on the pregnancy! :)  Maybe since I will have mine out for about 8 months before TTC I will have better luck...I can hope anyway lol

About every 3 months I ha 2-4 day period.

my Dr actually told me I could be preg immediately after taking it out without even having sex if I had sex the day before. But I honestly was soo surprised it happened so fast.

my advice would be to use condoms etc for the first month so you have at least one cycle and can count your days.
