Cycles after Mirena removal


I have had a Mirena IUCD for nearly 4 years. I have not had a period since it was inserted. Has anyone here had a Mirena with no periods? How long did it take for your cycle to return after it was removed?

Haven't had my Mirena removed yet but have not had a period in well over 18 months; have had it in since July 2009. Curious to hear as they say they should come back quickly and your fertility should return straight away, but it'd be nice to hear real-life accounts

I am hopeful my cycle will return right away. Although my husband and I will still be WTT, I feel it is time it comes out to allow for enough time to regulate my body and determine if I have anovulation with my PCOS.

I have also forgotten what having a cycle is like. I feel like I am going to have a rude awakening when it comes out next month.

When in your cycle was it removed?? I am curious if af will start right away. Was it painful when it was removed? Going in was miserable, and I hope coming out will be much easier.

Thanks for your input.

Hi! I had my IUD removed April 20 and started bleeding that weekend, which was about a week and a half before I was supposed to start. It lasted about 10 days.

Since then, I haven't had a period. I took 2 pregnacy tests and they were both negative. Has anyone else had issues with irregular periods after IUD removal? I've always had extremely regular periods.

I had my period on July 10 so I was in the middle of my cycle. It didn't hurt coming out. I did cramp a bit afterwards.

Hi all

I am medically trained to fit coils and have one myself!!

I had a Mirena prior to having my LO and had no periods on it
I had it removed had a period (sort of withdrawal bleed) and ovulated 2 weeks after and fell pregnant !

I am now WTT with another Mirena in and tracking my cycles; I am ovulating every month even though having minor irregular spotting

The Mirena coil does not affect ovulation so your fetility should come back asap. (works by altering the uterine lining, preventing implantation and making cervical mucous hostile to sperm)

It can take up to a few weeks for the bleeding to settle as the uterine lining (ie what gives your period) is not under the control of the progesterone in the coil any more.

If the mirena is removed in the first 5 days of your cycle (if you can work that out!) it is better for cycle/bleeding regulation and it is relatively pain free to remove sooooo much better than having it put in!!
