    had mirena removed september of 2011 and was just wondering if it is possible to become pregnant cause i have been trying to conceive and its been seven months. i also had some spotting 12days early before my period with no symptums of cramps just curious is too what that could be.
    fcl responded:
    Yes, it's possible to get pregnant after the removal of a mirena. However, the average time to get pregnant is 6-8 months so you're well within the norms. Most doctors won't see you until you've been trying for a year.

    Good luck!

    I had mine removed the same month as you it took me a year to finally get pregnant just keep trying and eventually you will get there. I thought i wasn't gonna be able to conceive anymore or maybe my husband wasn't adequate to make any baby's. But i finally just stopped stressing about it and had fun with it. Now i am 16 weks pregnant seemed like it took forever but it happened. Just enjoy yourself when the mirena has fully worn off you should get pregnant it just takes 8 to 12 months for the effects to wear off. I diffenantly would not recommend getting it again due to there is a law suit against them due to some off the side effects it has which includes infertility. So from one girl to anothr goo luck and hope it all turns out well!
