    I was just wondering if anyone had some insight on whether or not Premarin or IUD Mirena in fact cause infertility? I had my 1st child march 2010 with no problems during my pregnancy and I was hestitate to start back on birth control but with a lot of consideration i decided to go on Mirena well after 6 months of bleeding none stop I visited my dr. and he prescribed me to Premarin for a hormone supplement and 3 months later i stopped taking it because it didn't help and had my IUD taken out. Now a year later and a year of trying we have had no success in getting pregnant and I was just wondering if either one of these medications had anything to do with this.

    can say this i had mirena put in and i too had it taken out after bleeding full on periods for 6 months straight. I had to take antibiotics once mine was taken out but i dont remember what they were. I never used hormone supplements. It took me about two years to get pregnant again after that but i wasnt trying so i cant say if it would have happened faster. Funny thing is it seems to me that once i took birth control and the week i forgot to take it i would end up getting pregnant. the birth control to me seemed to make me more fertile. with the patch i took it off and didnt put it back on low and behold i was pregnant within 2 wks of that. so I dont know if its the mirena that caused your problem or the premarin. i just know takin birth control period made me fertile. at one point in time i had considered being a surrogate because pregnancy was easy for me but i never found the right info on that any way hope that helps
