Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

How are you doing?

  • Mirena is a Levonorgestrel IUD (intrauterine device). The levels in uterus locally and in blood is supplied on a daily basis. So if you have it removed today, you should be getting your periods within a few days, the withdrawal bleeding.
  • You can conceive in the next cycle. The contraceptive benefit of Mirena is lost very soon after removal.
  • If suppose your periods do not get back to normal soon, then you can have one cycle of birth control pills from the first day of the period. This will regularize your hormonal levels and improve the chances of getting pregnant.

Hope I have clarified your query, do write back. All the best.
