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.
I think from reading your story that it could go either way. It's possible that the Mirena affected you differently this time somehow. A lot of times birth control is not only different from person to person or even from one type of birth control to another but it can also affect you differently each time you take it. I've been on and off the pill for years, never missed a period on or off the pill and this last time I was on it, I got a super weird period that was WAY early and the doc thought I was pregnant but I wasn't. Just some weird fluke apparently. That had never happened before and I've been on and off with the pill for nearly 10 years. I also took depo once and didn't have a period for a year when I stopped it and I was only on it for 6 months. I think with birth control that sometimes it just does crazy things to your body that aren't easily explained.
With that said I also think it's possible that you are pregnant. Sometimes tests take longer to show up. It's absolutely possible that you ovulated later than you normally would have because of coming off of birth control. If you did ovulate later than you thought then you might not be getting a positive pregnancy test as soon as you think. How long are your cycles normally? Do you use OPKs or anything to see if you've ovulated? If you ovulated later you could be pregnant and just getting negative results because it's still early. I would definitely test again. I hope this helps and I hope that you get some answers s
My periods are normally every 30 days. I may have because I don't use a OPK. But i use the estimate ovulation calender and went with that. but i had to go buy a bigger pair of pants today because my other ones are way to tight. i hurts my stomach. and i have been having heart burn like crazy at night. i wait up at night and sometimes cant get back to sleep but when i do im usually waking up to heartburn. i had heartburn bad with my last child and she came out with a head full of hair. her hair was almost in her eyes. and when i turn a certain way its hurts and it didnt do that before. and yeah im a little confused because this hasnt ever happened to me before. but i did talk to a nurse and tell her what was going on ( not from my doctors office thought) and she said their is a possiblity that i could be. she said sometimes for some women their hcg levels done show it on a hpt. they have to have a blood test or a ultrasound to find out. i havnt taken a test yet because im tryn to wait til the end of the month. when its closer to when im supposed to start again and see. my doctor office said that if i dont start by the first week of feb that i need to come in and see whats going on. i want them to do a blood test and ultrasound to rule out pregnany if im not or to confirm it if i am. because i do know there is a pill that they can give you to jump start ur period. and my husband said they are not doing that until they do a blood test or ultrasound to make sure. yes i have heard it messes some woman up but i havnt ever had that prob and i was on the pill, patch, mirena two times. and this is the only time that i have ever missed and if i am maybe im not that far along. just needing some advice. im really thinkn about gettn a test by this weekend just to see. but i didnt ever find out before until i was like a month and half late from my period. im thinkn i should wait im 4 weeks late from missed period. but i wanna know and yeah maybe i did ovulate late. i just hope i am pregnant.
