how early can you get pregnant when you got your mirena (levonorgestrel) tooken out?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Philip Hindelang
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.
