I was wondering if anyone else has had trouble getting pregnant after Mirena?

Hi Alex, I`m a 37yr old mother of an 18 month old, and I`m wanting to have another child. I had a Mirena inserted and then decided to have another child and had the Mirena removed 9 months later(terrible experience, the wire was cut too short, so the Dr used long tweezer thingy to pull it out) anyway,it has now taken 3 months of trying and I`m not pregnant, i got pregnant within the first month last time, was wondering if anyone else has had trouble getting pregnant after Mirena?

Answer: Hi, It can take a normal healthy couple at least 6 months to get pregnant and sometimes it can take up to 12 months. Try not to worry too much just yet and give you body sometime to adjust. Best wishes, Alex
