    So i had been on the Mirena IUD for just over 2 years i took it out the 26th, of January. I just started my period the 14th of February, & me and my partner are looking to conceive as soon as possible, I have no clue where to go from here, when to try, the best days to try or anything. note this is the first period I've had in over 2 years so I don't know how permanent my cycle is or even what it is. I really need some good advice, & don't really have time to waste. Please & thanks.

    Most women ovulate in the middle of their cycles, but since you haven't had a period in 2 years you don't know your cycle. You are probably going to have to have 2-3 periods before you can figure out what your cycle is and therefor when it's time to have sex. You could looking into monitoring your cycle by taking your temp every day, checking your cervical fluids and it position, also Ovulation Predictor Tests can help too. I have heard the website Fertility Friend is a really good resource to learn all about keeping track of your cycle and you can learn all about charting too.
    Good luck & baby dust to you.

    Frequent sex, every other day is best, especially if you don't know specific day of ovulation yet.

    Sex every other day, and change it up - keep it fresh! Keep a daily log of vaginal sensation, cervical mucous and your desire for sex too. In a couple of months you'll have it all figured out Oh, and basal body temperature plus ovulation test kits are great too.
