Hi my name is Dee and I am new here. I currently have 3 beautiful children and after 5 years have decided to start trying for our 4th. I am in my 30's and my last baby was born with a birth defect so i am a bit nervous what might happen this time, but we want to add another miracle to our family. Also just had my mirena removed after 5 years and wondering how long it has taken others to get pg after having it removed. Our first two kids we weren't trying at all and got pg, our third I was on the nuva ring and removed it and a month later was pg. So not getting pg right away will be very weird. Any advice, thanks!
Welcome! I don't have personal experience with the mirena but I've heard of others taking a while for true fertility to return. I would suggest you start basal temping and using ovulation tests to help determine when you are ovulating again.

Hi and Welcome!! I've never had the Mirena but my understanding is that fertility is supposed to return quickly. Of course, that may be different in practice. I hope you get pregnant right away so you can start your journey. I look forward to hearing more from you about your journey.
hi and welcome!
