I will get my IUD removed in May if we decide to ttc. We would like to do gender swaying to try for a boy. I am curious if there is any reason to temp before having it removed. This is bad, but I am not even sure if you O when on Mirena. I do know my periods are all over the place while on it.

You could always try it and see what happens... I'm pretty sure you do O, I still have ovulation signs and I have a Mirena also. The IUD just prevents implantation and/or fertilization. (apparently it's different for different people). My periods are relatively regular even with it, although December I had 2 periods...Merry Christmas to me

I have read that Mirena can stop you from ovulating and that it also takes a period of time to ovulate regularly after removal.
On the temping note, even if you do not ovulate getting into the habit of temping takes time... I would start ahead of time just to see how your body acts and to create the habit. Its such a pain in the butt though. lol

I suppose if AF stops it's safe to assume you've stopped ovulating, then? Although I was "assured" by my OB that if/when we're ready to TTC again it shouldn't take too long to get pregnant, I've heard more often than not that it takes a LONG time to conceive after getting it out. One person in Kolbie's PR took 14 months after only having it in for 6 months. I'm trying to use that argument with DH to get mine out sooner rather than later... it's not working

Not always! Liam was conceived 2 months after having an IUD taken out. Emerson was 3 or 4 months.

off topic, but how much did it cost you to get the IUD put in?

I don't get periods on it. I have no idea if I am ovulating or not. My Dr told me the same thing, that it won't take long after it is removed but I am sure it could be different for everyone as everyone's body will react differently.

Cyndee- My insurance covered it. I think I just paid a $25 co-pay for the Dr visit.

Insurance also covered mine but I believe I had a $10 appointment co-pay and then it was $100 for the IUD OOP. At least that's the way I read the bill... That was my old insurance though so I'm not sure what my new insurance would cover. I think it would just be a $20 office visit co-pay.
