Its quite interesting, I have heard a lot of people saying they got really depressed on the Mirena, although Ive not heard within a time frame or anything.

For the first 3 years my Mirena was AMAZING. Seriously. I would sing its praises to anyone who would listen. I had no AF, no mood swings. It was fab. I had no weight gain or anything.

Then after 3 years, I was really depressed...but I dont think that was anything to do with the Mirena because I'd had a terrible time and my depression lifted 2 months before my mirena came out without medication or anything, I just managed to get myself out of the depression.

My only complaint was that I got more spotting and more pain after the 3 years really. I did see a Gynae for an unrelated issue but I did mention it and she said perhaps the hormone was wearing out and suggested my GP put me on the mini-pill as well to help control my periods but because I knew I was going to TTC in a year she said not to worry.

I fully intend to get another Mirena in after I have a baby. I have undiagnosed Endo (Ive not had a scan but my gynae thinks I have it) and awful periods. The Mirena was the only thing that controlled my periods.

Hi Girls,

I am ex Mirena too, I had mine removed last Jan - we have been TTC since then. I had the coil in for 4 years, no noticeable side effects for me.

I got my first in July 09 but had a mmc @ 10.5 wks, we then got our second in Nov but this was a chemical. I have had a few months break from TTC and now I am back since June. This would be my first child I am 34 (35 in a few weeks), I am trying until Spring next year then we will put on hold as we are planning our wedding.

We have been NTNP and I am now on the CBFM, my OH hasn't been told about this as he is against charting - as he wants the sex to be as natural as possible, so at the min I am keeping this secret as I would like to monitor my cycles.

Basically I am hoping to get pregnant before Christmas but as long as my baby is healthy I don't mind when really, it will happen when it happens.

Good luck to us all

OK, ive counted 10 of us so far.

Out of 10 of us we have to see a couple of BFP's surely!!!

When is everyone due to test?

Im testing 28th September - a few days early but i have been predicted 'baby news' in september by a clarvoyant (not one of these internet ones but one that i visited regarding other stuff to do with my nan passing away). Plus DP is away and back that day and would love to suprise him with a BFP.

xxx

You removed it yourself? Ow!

Maybe we could all list our testing dates on the front page?

Im due AF Sept 26th. I dont know whether to test then or the 27th. Im really REALLY going to try and restrain from testing before AF is due.

@sls612 thanks that was helpful!

I'm wondering if anyone here has heard of people miscarrying because they got pregnant to soon after having their Mirena removed. I was really disappointed to hear this. Did anyones doctor tell them to wait or did they say you can start ttc asap?
