I personally have not had any children after removal of the Mirena. Mirena claims that 80% of women wanting to get pregnant after removal, do so within 12 months after removal. I don't know how accurate their info is or what kind of study they conducted to get this info. I think it best to give the hormone some time to get out of the system so your body will be better able and equipped to handle pregnancy. This is just my opinion friend! If you are wanting to get pregnant sooner just ignore me:):):)I have five month old twins and I had a miscarriage in 06, five months before getting pregnant with the twins. Right before I got pregnant with them I had recently stopped ortho evra(that BC didn't go well for me either:))and got pregnant within two months. I know it is a different hormone but want to give you some hope. I hope all goes well with your removal and please know I wish you all the best friend! Please let us know how everything goes for you! :)Hug!
