Can you get Pregnant after mirena removal?

After having the IUD for 2.5 years after the birth of my daughter, I started having chronic back pain only on my right side... So I called my obgyn...
I had to have a hysterscopy to have my IUD removed, it had turned sideways causing my back pain. I want to conceive again. It has been about two months since the removal.
I was told the other day that the downfall of having the mirena is that you can conceive but cannot carry.
Is there any truth in this? Has anyone had the mirena, had it removed, and conceived and carried a full term pregnancy?

I want to start by saying I am 26 with 1 child (had no issues conceiving, successful first cycle) and had Mirena for 2 years. I don't mean to scare anyone but the "can conceive but not carry" has been true for me and has been extremely depressing. I have actually gone as far to decide not to continue trying, adopt, and get on another form of birth control. I have had my Mirena removed for a year now, got pregnant a few weeks after removal and miscarried at 4 weeks. I then continued to try to conceive and had 2 more miscarriages both at 8 weeks. The last I even waited the length of time the doctor recommended to let my hormones regulate (3cycles) and my pregnancy still failed. I am going to be referred to a fertility specialist to find out what damage Mirena did to my fertility and see if I have a case against Bayer.

Yes!!! I had my mirena in for longer than I was so post to almost 6 years and was worried also! When I had it removed it took only a couple months before I became pregnant! I am now 31 weeks pregnant and have had no problems this far!

There was just a lady on TLC the other day who had a baby after mirena. There is no reason you should have trouble carrying. Sometimes women have trouble getting pregnant at first, like with any hormonal birth control. Here's the Mirena web site for more info. mirena-us.com/index.jsp

I had my first IUD put in 6 weeks after I had my daughter in 2007 and the. In 2009 we decided to have another baby so I had it removed and we conceived our son who was born healthy and perfect in 2010 so yes you can have a healthy baby after you have the IUD removed

Yes. I had my first son when I was 30 (after trying to conceive for six months). At my postpartum appointment, I got a Mirena. Three years later, I had it removed so we could try for our second child. We waited 2.5 months, to allow the lining of my uterus to thicken, and then conceived the first month we tried. I carried my second son through a completely healthy pregnancy; I was 34 when he was born. I got my second Mirena at that postpartum appointment. Two years later, now, I just had my Mirena removed and we'll be trying for our third child after I wait a few months for my uterine lining to thicken again. I'm charting and don't anticipate any problems conceiving again.

congrats stefanicolle..im having my mirena removed next wed. and am hoping to become pregnant right away. I've had it since Jan. 2010 after having my second daughter. Hopefully it wont take to long and there wont be any complications. My sister had her mirena taken out in Jan. 2012 and found out she was pregant in April 2012. In June she miscarried. She then conceived about six months later and now has her 3 beautiful daughter.

It is possible to get pregnant immediately. I had my mirena removed on 11/27. My husband and I started right away. I took a pregnancy test on 12/31 and we are expecting! Excited beyond all belief! Just keep trying and no stress!

Everyone is different. I had Mirena for 2 years. When it was removed in April 2012, gynecologist said it could take up to a year for hormones to be balanced again and be able to conceive. I had a normal period a month after removal but wasn't able to conceive until exactly 1 year and 3 month, July 2013 and it was an ectopic pregnancy. I had surgery August 2013 because my left tube ruptured and it had to be removed. Amazingly we conceived again 3 weeks after surgery and right now I am 23 weeks 6 days pregnant with a girl. Everything is great so far. We are both healthy. Good luck!

Hi Stefanicolle I had mirena put in in nov. 2009 8 weeks after i gave birth to my third healthy child . and I had the mirena removed In january 5th 2012 I got pregnant about 1 month later and misscarried at 5 weeks again i got pregnant in october of 2012 and misscarried at 6 weeks about a week ago .I never had a problem before like i said i had three healthy kids in a row with no misscairages and now i just cant seem to go past 8 weeks Im 100% sure that the mirena had something to due with this my doctor said its probably my age .im 32 right now but I THINK ITS BULL ... I tried to tell her about the mirena she put in me in 2009 but she did not believe that the mirena is the problem its my age ... WHAT A BUNCH OF BULL .. I do think that mirena is safe for some women to use its not safe for every woman its dangerous and can lead to infertility or misscarrying not once but multiple times like me..
I regret having the mirena I wish I turn back time but its just not possible I feel like it robbed me from ever getting to complete the last piece of the puzzle In my life but all I know Is that I wont give up for now I will keep trying because you just never know if you dont try.

I had surgery for endometriosis in 1998. I had a DD in 2000 and after used BC pills until 2009. Got Mirena in 09 and decided to try for more in 2012. No issues in 3 years w/ Mirena. Had it removed 9/19 and ovulated in Oct. Got BFP 1/2/13 just before 37th bday. First pregnancy took almost a year to conceive in early 20's and didn't have Mirena before that. Second pregnancy took 3 months after Mirena and in mid-late 30's. I feared all of these things and read tons of message boards. My advice, every person is so different. Use the boards to find comfort in not being alone but don't put so much weight on it that you stress. Best of luck in your quest for your miracle.

I have the same question. mine fell out april 15. Since then, i have been feeling like crap... nauseous and weak. Im not planning on getting another one because i do want another child. But im concerned about all the stories i have read. The last time i actually had a period was in October 2012. Ive had the IUD since March 2009. When it fell out there was blood. I wish i could get some other advice. I go to the dr Wednesday. Would they be able to tell me if im pregnant so soon??? My nurse sound very surprised when she noticed in the hospital records that the ER did not do a blood pregnancy test (saturday night).
Please someone respond back.

I'm 22 and had a mirena put in after I had my son 3 years ago, now my husband and I are trying for a second. I had it taken out Oct 2012 concieved a week after and then miscarried 4 weeks after that then had to get a D&C. My doctor told me that mirena might have had something to do with it since I'm so young and in shape I shouldn't have had any problems. Been trying since and still no luck =[ they can lead to frequent miscarriages so just be cautious
