I'm 30 years old and have had my IUD in for five years. I'm suppose to take it out in March. Was wondering if anyone else has had it for 5 years and had it removed so they could conceive again? What was your experiance like? How long did you wait to conceive? Were their any complications? I was ok with it, but then I heard it hurts really bad when they remove it and after it's removed you need to wait till you start trying again because you could possibly miscarage. Please advise.

I had the mirena for 3 years, so not exactly 5. It didn't hurt when I had it removed, my doctor told us we could start trying right away but suggested I wait one month for everything to regulate. We were pregnant within 3 months of having it removed and had no complications, but then again my first pregnancy was easy too.
