Hi everyone....Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Megan and I am 31. We have one daughter, who is currently 5 1/2. I've had the Mirena IUD for 5 years and just had it out via hysteroscopy (they couldn't find the strings). After heavy bleeding initially, I had a followup appt with my doctor and I am clear for TTC now. I am a little afraid this time around because I had pre-e with our first daughter, who was born at 35 weeks, 5 days. I have also been trying to lose weight before having a second, but after speaking to my doctor, he informed me that I was placing too much pressure on myself and basically that I could begin to try to get pregnant. I haven't had a period in nearly 5 years (Just spotting) because of the Mirena hormones. So, I am a little worried about being able to conceive (even though we conceived our first daughter immediately). I am also pretty clueless about where I am at in my cycle, although I had what I think were ovulation pains two nights ago, and we BD'd. Yesterday I had what i believe to be EWCM and we BD'd yesterday as well. (TMI I know). I am just hoping for an easier pregnancy and I would like to be pregnant sooner rather than later! I am excited to meet everyone!

Hi Megan. I had my Mirena removed in December 2011 n have been TTC myself. I have 3 boys n last one had signs of pre-e myself.All were also born around or before 37 weeks. I had heavy bleeding for the first week then period week after. Best thing the doctor told me is to chart n kind of figure out ovulation day ( which is he said is day 12-14 of cycle ). I didnt have much for periods either while Mirena was in place. I just take it one day at a time. I wish you all the best. Baby dust your way.

Have you had a period since it was removed in December? I charted my 1st period...which was probably actually the heaving bleeding...which occured about 4 days after. 2 days after I had light spotting and then I had the heavy bleeding. I have no idea when I am ovulating so its tricky. I wish you the best as well! Keep me posted!
