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.
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.
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.
I'm Beth, 24yrs old and live in Texas. I am married to Mark and we have 3 little boys. Landon is 7.5, Casen is 5.5 and Hayden is 3 today! We are on our 2nd cycle of TTC our little girl. I think I might have missed O so I'm still testing for it and starting day after tomorrow also for pregnancy lol. I started testing for O too late this cycle i think. But I'm CD 18 today I removed my mirena myself in july
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?
