    Yay! Thanks for sorting this thread out Sharron!!!

    Everyone is more than welcome to yoink my 'ex-mirena TTCer' glitter thingie too for their signatures!

    Im Laura, aged 27. DH is 32. Been together 6 years, very happily married for nearly 2.
    Never been pregnant in my life.
    Long history of progesterone treatment and BCPs due to painful periods.
    Mirena in for 4 years due to undiagnosed Endo. I absolutely loved the Mirena, it changed my life and had very few side effects.
    Removed Mirena 5th August 2010 for TTC #1.
    Had one cycle with ovulation on CD18 and AF appearing on CD28.
    Currently on CD17 of 2nd cycle, darkening OPKs but no positive yet. Suffering with Left sided ovulation pain as we speak!
    Using OPKs, temping and checking CM. I love Fertility Friend charting!
    Not on any supplements apart from Pregnacare Vits for the Folic Acid goodness.

    So excited about TTC!!!!

    Good luck to all my fellow ex-Mirenas for their :bfp:

    :dust: to all!

    Yep, I'll throw my hat in for this group.

    I'm Louise, I'm 32 and I had the Mirena for just 8 months. My side effects were so awful, I couldn't stand it.

    It was removed three months ago and I've had 2 cycles ttc. I have one daughter, aged 6, and we are trying to happily enlarge our small family.

    The witch just got me, so I'm waiting to OV around the 28th of the month, and will be using OPKs, CM and CP.

    I really hope to see the BFPs flying up here, give me hope!

    I'm in, I am Tracey, 31 had the mirena for 18 months and had terrible side effects which nearly cost me my marriage. I had it out 26th june (i think). We are ttc #2 going into second cycle. hope we all get bfp's soon. I have seen threads saying about the horror stories with the Mirena, but I don't know what they are, are they side effect or ttc stories? Or is it best not to know xx

    Count me in! Im Tamra age 21 and DH age 35. We have been together for almost 2 years and married for almost one. I have 2 children from my previous marriage, girl 3, boy 2 and he has 2 children from his previous marriage boy 15 and girl 11. We would like to have our very own little bean together. I had mirena for just 6 months and it caused me to have horrible Ovarian Cysts so I had to have it removed!

    I'm Staci and I had my Mirena removed in August 2010 after 3 great years. DH and I both turned 30 this summer and we've been married for just over 3 years. We are in our first cycle TTC for baby #1. Currently CD 30 but not sure how long it will be, since while I had my Mirena I didn't get AF for a year or better (which was tops!).

    Glad to meet some fellow ex-Mirena gals!

    Wow great to hear from you girls.

    I have to say i thought the mirena was great for the first 4 (out of 5 years) years having no periods was fab!!!

    But interestingly reading Kracker's post, this last year i have turned into a mental/psycho women. Paranoid, stressed, depressed, anger spurts, i didnt put it down to the coil at all as i had been fine for so many years, but when i read up on it i found out that it can 'wear out' after 4 years causing all the above symptoms.

    DP nearly left me many times, and fair play to him if he had (i was horrendous).

    Since having it out in June i have been a new person. DP is very happy that i no longer throw plates at his head!! Winner :dohh:

    Im on CD 12 today and my opk's are getting darker. Fingers cross i get a positive and a peak on my cbfm, as the boys are with their dad all weekend.

    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 :bfp: in July 09 but had a mmc @ 10.5 wks, we then got our second :bfp: 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.

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

    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?
