It can take up to 6 months for women to resume ovulation after stopping hormonal contraceptive treatments (Mirena is an IUD but also secretes hormones). Normally you are fertile once you resume menstruation after stopping Mirena or other types of hormonal contraceptives.
Though, usually, 3 months is the average time it takes to start ovulating again (and getting your period). You could just be unlucky so far... the average chance of conceiving for a woman 27-30 each cycle is about 25-30%, so perhaps the odds have just been against you.
If you are older than 35 and do not resume menstruation or get pregnant within 6 months, go to your OBGYN and get bloodwork done - you could be experiencing early menopause (very rare, but possible), or you might need a referral to a good ferility specialist.
It could be your husband (having low sperm count or weak swimmers), or you (not ovulating due to Mirena, or age if you're over 35). Mirena can also cause uterine scarring, so getting a checkup with your OBGYN is a good idea if you are not pregnant 6 months after stopping Mirena (6-9 months, technically, but 6 months isn't an unreasonable amount of time to seek a doctor's advice).
