Wait a bit: The lining in the uterus is very suppressed and thin- it may take several months to become more normal. Some patients have ovulation suppressed by Mirena (levonorgestrel) as well and it can be a few months to recover- may need "fertility pills" to help this happen sooner.

Anovulation: An irregular menstrual cycle can be a sign of anovulation. If you are not ovulating consistently, pregnancy will be difficult to achieve. You can do home ovulation testing with a kit, or see a physician for lab work in the second half of the cycle to test for ovulation. You may need medication to improve your chances of success.
