Hi ladies. I am Carrie. I used to be the host here (2-3 separate times) anyway. Aug 15th I got my mirena out. I am waiting impatiently for my first post mirena AF. I started charting a couple days after getting it out.
I havent had much CM I dont think i am post ovulation yet. *sigh*
The hormones in the Mirena do shrivel up (or age) the crypts in the cervix where good quality CM is produced. So it's possible you may ovulate without as much CM as you may have had before. This can take a bit of time to heal.
Hi Shawna. congrats on baby, I think I left before you wer preggo... Thats good to know. I dont have much cm showing on underwear and not much slippery feeling but there is CM when I check my cervix so I hope you are right.
the doctor that removed the mirena said that its like red light green light for fertility but your uterus might take time to thicken walls. Does this mean I could start a new cycle without a period?
No, if you ovulate and the egg is not fertilized - you will still menstruate sometime afterward. But it may not be as heavy. The risk of miscarriage is much higher during the first 3 months after removing the Mirena, because of the way it thins the uterine lining to prevent implantation. Takes time for that to build up again. Doesn't guarantee that TTC will result in m/c, there's just a higher chance of it.
right. I wasnt sure because i didnt have a period while on mirena so i wondered if I could go through a cycle and maybe only spot as my first "period"
Oh I see what you mean. Yeah, that's possible. What determines whether it's a true period or not is whether ovulation occurs first, not the heaviness or color of the bleeding. If you experience spotting or bleeding without confirming ovulation first, then it wouldn't be a new cycle. It would be inter-menstrual bleeding (breakthrough or withdrawal bleeding).
