How far in advance should I get my mirena out? rjiewjdhjehe Due November 22 (boy); 1 child; 2 angel babies; Halifax, NS, Canada 2037 posts

We are getting married June 29th! After the wedding we are going to TTC!!! (I have had baby fever ever since my LO was about 6 months old.. he's 3 and a half now.. this is LONG awaited for me!!!) Planning on taking my mirena out soon, just not sure HOW soon..

How long in advance before TTC did you get your mirena taken out? did you have a cycle or two before you TTC? Also, I've heard there's a higher chance of having twins right after the mirena, any truth to this? Grandmother had fraternal twins so I may already carry the hyperovulation gene so I'm curious if this even further increases those odds lol...

My doctor told me to wait one cycle before trying. It took 3 months to get pregnant.

I've known people who had had it out and gotten pregnant the next month but I also know people who have had it and it's taken them years to get pregnant. It took me 4+ years to get pregnant with my LO after I had it removed. It took my best friend (after surgery to get it removed) 2 and a half years to get pregnant.

I got accidentally pregnant about 5 months after mine was out.

I got mine out yesterday and we are going to wait a few months because I've heard of a lot of people miscarrying if they get pregnant too soon!

My doctor said to wait a couple cycles. So I got mine taken out in August & we planned on starting TTC in October. We had sex ONCE a few days after it was removed & I got pregnant. lol

I had the marina taken out in July after having it in for 3 years but we started trying straight away. I had my first af the following month & had a regular 29 day cycle.

I feel really bad writing this as I don't want to scare anyone who's ttc after the marina removal even though I know it doesn't happen to everyone it's just one of those things but it took me 4 months to get pg but I sadly had a m/c at 9 weeks

GL on your ttc journey ;)
