    Default Taking out IUD

    I have decided to take my Mirena out at the end of the month. I am wondering what I can expect when it's out ( I have had it in for 3.5 years) what have people's experiences been?

    I had mine out about three years ago in nov, decided to start ttc in feb and fell pg first month. I've been told that you should wait 2-3 cycles before ttc because falling pg straight after it can result in mc. The first time around, I didn't know that, it was just coincidence that we waited a few cycles. This time I went to get mine out at the gp last month and she couldn't find the strings so I have to wait til 9/12 to see the gynaecologist to try and get it out.

    I don't remember it being that bad. I has my first one in for almost three years I think. I've got another one in now and have has it for almost 4 years.

    It's much better than having it put in.
    I got pregnant straight away. Didn't even have a period first.

    Oh wow haha! And I hope so because the Mirena going in before having kids and not getting knocked out was no easy feat. My strings are a bit short so I will need to go back to my gyno but that's alright.

    It really depends on the person.
    I had mine out about July and it was terrible! I wasn't told about any of the possible issues such as torrential bleeding, severe cramps, etc. It was so bad that when I rang Nurse On Call they told me to go straight to hospital as it sounded like I was having a miscarriage! Luckily I wasn't but that gives you an idea of how bad I had it.
    However, having since read a lot more about it I've discovered that I should never have been given it to begin with due to personal and family medical history. But there are still a lot of women out there who have said the bleeding and cramps afterwards was absolutely dreadful.
