Pregnancy After Mirena

Getting pregnant after Mirena? Find out how long you should expect it to take to get pregnant after Mirena.

Mirena is an IUD that is chosen by many women as a form of birth control. It can be a great choice for a lot of women, since it provides a relatively low maintenance form of birth control that you don’t really have to worry about. It is a great choice for women who don’t want to have to worry about birth control every day and it is good for up to five years. But, the question is, what happens if you want to get pregnant after Mirena? Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Have Mirena removed

If you decide to get pregnant, your doctor will have to remove your Mirena IUD. Once Mirena is removed, the contraceptive effects of it should be immediately gone. The average is that around 80 percent of women that try to become pregnant become pregnant within a year of stopping use of Mirena. Most doctors do recommend that you wait at least one menstrual cycle before trying to get pregnant, just to let your body get back into its natural rhythm.

Mirena is safe to use

The truth is that most women have little to no issues getting pregnant after Mirena. It is probably one of the easiest birth control methods to get pregnant with after it is removed. Actually, a lot of women are surprised at how fast you can get pregnant after your IUD is removed. There is no reason to worry, however, if it takes a few months to get pregnant. Everyone is different, so keep that in mind. What other women experience is not necessarily what you will experience. But, keep in mind that there is no research to show that there is any risk of extended infertility when taking Mirena.

Talk with your doctor

Mirena is a great choice for extended birth control for a lot of women. It is easy to use, and once you have the IUD implanted, there is nothing to have to worry about after that. It can be a wonderful choice for many families. Plus, when you decide that you are ready to have a baby, Mirena is a great choice since you can usually get pregnant very quickly after stopping use. If you are considering contraception, but you know that you want to be a mom in the future, ask your doctor if Mirena is a good choice for you.

    I had mine removed 12/14/2015 and used ovulation sticks to track when I would ovulate. I ovulated on 12/22/2015. I highly recommend using them if you can.

    I had Mirena in since 2011. It was due out in Jan 2026, so I switched to Nexplanon. I had my “period”on mirena around Dec 10. Had the Mirena swapped for Nexplanon on the 16th. Dr stated no need for backup method. Had sex the next day. Realized 2 days ago I was most likely pregnant, extremely sore breast that felt very full. Naseous for no reason. Then I actually caught a stomach virus and had such violent projectile vomiting and diarrhea that I believe it triggered a miscarriage, as I have been bleeding more in the last day than in 2 years combined on Mirena. So yea use a bacup if switching from one to the other despite what you may have been told. Luckily, I did not want a baby, so realizing that my body was rejecting the pregnancy was such a relief.

    I got my Mirena IUD taken out yesterday 1/7/2016. My husband and I had sex that night. I was told my the ultrasound tech that I am very Fertile by the Blood flow in my ovaries. That night after intercourse around 30-45 mins I had to this weird pressure sensation in my left ovary. IT didnt hurt but was unusual. is it possible to conceive the same day of removal. I think i may have been ovulating. Today i feel find no cramping but had that same feeling very slightly today and then it was gone.
    possible that i conceived?

    I had a mirena removed on January 5, after having it in for a year. I am TTC baby #2. After having it removed I had bleeding on the 6th,7th, and 8th then it stoped. So my question is, how do you determine when of if you are ovulating and how do you track it on a calendar if I haven’t had a period in 2 years (due to pregnancy and mirena) to go off of? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    I had the Mirena removed Jan 3rd 2016 and since then I have not had any bleeding, even right after it was removed. After every removal of my mirena I’ve had some bleeding except with this one. My husband and I are trying for baby #3. We started having sex a few days after removal. Now I’m having massive stomach cramps and lower back pain, but still no bleeding.

    I had my mirena in for five years and spotted every month. I got it removed in December 2015 and had what I assumed was a period right after. I thought I was pregnant in January, but got my period. I tried again in February. Is it possible to conceive that soon or will it take longer because I had it in for five years?

    I had my mirena for 4 months, I had it removed 2/18 i assume this was the end of my cycle I was spotting very light until my Mirena was taken out then I bled normal again until 2/20 which is 2 days later. That day being my birthday me and my husband had sex now here it is 2/24 and I’ve been nauseous, smells are making me sick, I’m emotional and tired. Can you really be pregnant and symptoms so soon?

    I had my mirena in for 5 yrs and 3 months got it out January 17th and got a period or what I think was a period that lasted 3 days on February 9th. My boyfriend and I have been having unprotected sex because we are trying to have a baby. It is not match 13th and no period. I’ve taken 3 home pregnancy tests but all negative results. Could it be too early that the test aren’t ready the pregnancy yet or am I just not pregnant?

    I got my Mirena IUD removed in December 2015 during the time I got it removed I was on my menstrual after getting the IUD removed I had unprotected sex many times my first period after getting it removed was Jan 1, 2016 and the next Feb 4th in February I took a pregnancy test it was a negative result & now in March I take a test and its positive. Finally my question is could I have possibly gotten pregnant before my last period? The doctor explained to me upon removal of the iud that I should wait for a regular period cycle. I’m confused please help!!!
