Dr. Philip Hindelang answered
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
At first ovulation: Mirena (levonorgestrel) does not prevent ovulation in the majority of users as opposed to birth control pills. Once the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is removed, there is no longer any contraceptive benefit. If one then has unprotected sex during ovulation, pregnancy can occur. Conception immediately post Mirena (levonorgestrel) removal is not harmful to the fetus.
