Did you have success or problems conceiving after having used an IUD birth control? I have had a Mirena in since October 2008. We want to try for baby number 2 in June. I am trying to determine if I should have the Mirena removed now or closer to June. Any experiences to share??

I have not had this but I know a friend who did. It seems that the longer you are on it the longer it takes to come out of your system. My advice is to come off it now and take other precautions until your periods return and are regular.

I had mine removed in August and was pregnant by November. The doctor was even shocked at how quickly it happened :)

I was pregnant within 3 months of having it removed and that was after I waited for one month. I had it for over 4 years. Good luck!
