Mirena is OUT (with a charting question)

Had my appointment last night and the Mirena is officially out. The OBGYN gave me an official go ahead to start trying whenever.

My question is should I start charting right away even without knowing where in the cycle I am, or should I wait til my first AF?

I was pretty crampy right after the procedure and a tad bit today. Had some brown discharge, but not much, and no other bleeding, which was a pleasant surprise.

Welcome! I had my Mirena taken out on August 5th. I have not had a period yet, my Dr. did advise me to wait until I had a normal period to begin officially TTC. I did notice just a tiny bit of spotting today, so I am hoping that my period is coming. I haven't started charting yet, but if I haven't had my period by the time I've had the Mirena out for a month I will start, just to see if I am ovulating. I think it is just up to you on what you want to do. Good luck!

I had mine out August 1st. Last night I finally got AF, which I didn't have the entire 3 years that I had it in. Hopefully my body is back on track.

We started TTC right away when we got the Mirena removed, and we also got pregnant within 3 weeks!! I never got AF back after having it removed and baby is healthy!! I think that they want you to wait just so you would be able to have some sort of idea when you would be due!

I started AF on Saturday. 3 days after it came out. So I'm starting to chart now. I'm using Fertility Friend. I'll have to see if I can link it up to my signature.
