Depends: When you had a long period, this may be a sign that your hormones are returning to the way they were before the Mirena (levonorgestrel). The mirena (levonorgestrel) coil suppressed the estrogen-progesterone cycle. It takes some women longer than others for the cycle to restart. If you had no problems with conception before the IUD, you can probably conceive now or within 6 months.
