Hi Erin, throwing my hat into the ring for this one.
In the past, when I've gone off hormonal birth control, I also had a pretty bad period pretty soon after. I got my Mirena IUD removed three weeks ago, and so far, I've had no bleeding. A wee bit of spotting for a few days after removal, but it was old blood, infrequent and light. I also expected a heavy period soon after removal, but nothing yet.
I wouldn't worry about it yet - my gyno said it could take 6 weeks, sometimes more, to get a first real period. He mentioned giving me something to jump start it if nothing happens 8 weeks post removal.
It's so hard to be patient! I know exactly where you're coming from. I hope we both get AF soon - probably one of the few times in our lives we wished for that huh?
Keep us posted!
