Was excited, anxious, now experiencing fear and frustration!!
Need some serious advice here ladies...... My daughter was born July 3, 2007 I went to the 6 week check up and my OBGYN helped me to decide on the Mirena IUD until I was ready to attempt another child. After 5 years of no complications what so ever and then no monthly cycle to boot! Then in August 2012 there was another replacement made and no problems what so ever, until..... December 2013 since then a monthly cycle has blessed me. After some discussing with my fiance we decided to attempt conception and have the Mirena removed. At an appointment yesterday, my OBGYN informs me that he is unable to locate the strings and has scheduled me for an ultrasound next week to see what has happened to the IUD. He believes is has expelled itself -thus explaining the monthly cycle, I hope for my health that is the case. He did also say worst case senario it will need to be removed through a DNC. At this time I am currently on a prenatal vitamin since yesterday and hoping for the best. Any advise to give, or comments on similar situation will be appreciated! Wondering if the Mirena was a huge hinder on my future ability to conceive??
