Hello everyone. I new to this pregnancy.org. my hubby and i are trying to concieve. okay heres my story. I had the mirena and had it removed on November 29,2011. I had my normal period 2 days later on Dec 1,2011. The reason I say normal period is because that is when I was supposed to start. I had a period every month while having mirena. They werent heavy heavy but they werent light either. I havn't had a period since then. I have had symptoms of pregnancy but no positive result. I havent taken a test in over a week. I was supposed to start Dec 31,2011 and havent and it is now Jan 21,2011. I really dont know what to think. I have had the mirena once before and had it removed because I got married. I do have 2 children with my ex-bf. After I had my first mirena removed within 3 months of it being gone I got pregnant. My husband and I have 2 children together and would like to have one more. I had it taken out and had no bleeding from removal just a slight cramp when it was removed, but other than that I felt better it being gone. my period 2 days later was like any normal pre-mirena period. normal being heavy and then went to light it lasted about 7 days. and that is normal for me too. I called a nurse at my doctor office and they said its just the hormones tryn to get out my body. now i know that not every womans body is the same and it effects other differently. Reading some stuff it says when the mirena is out the hormones are gone and some woman can get pregnant right after or it may take some time. I'm just wondering if this is as common with other woman? i have taken pregnancy test and they were negative. I do plan to test again. just needing some info. we are really hoping i am pregnant. i have been feeling very tired here lately, headaches off and on, bloated(my pants dont even button anymore) and usually when i start i do get bloated but i can still wear my clothes. some lower back pain, and a swollen breast. nausea off and on no vomiting though. So could yall give me some advice please and thank you. could i be pregnant? or is this normal after mirena removal? when should i test? i havnt tested in a while. im trying to wait i dont want to get test happy. please help..thankz..and i havnt ever missed a period unless i was pregnant. when i had the mirena the last time it was no time before i got my period everything went back to normal and i had that mirena from may 2007 til july 08. this time was from feb 25,2011 til nov 29,2011 so like 9 months.
