How soon after getting mirena (levonorgestrel) out do I ovulate? I have endometriosis but had a surgery to remove it ~4 weeks ago

How soon after getting mirena (levonorgestrel) out do I ovulate? I have endometriosis but had a surgery to remove it ~4 weeks ago

Varies: It is possible to ovulate very soon after removing the Mirena (levonorgestrel). This is partially due to the fact that many women still ovulate with a Mirena (levonorgestrel) in place. I always warn my patients to use backup contraception as soon as the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is out and while they are waiting for their period to regulate. ...Read more

39 year women w/o child would like children Still has ovulation but has diaphragmatic endometriosis. Need to make decision. Remove it or get pregnant?

Why either/or?: You might consider doing both, in whatever sequence you desire. Removing the troublesome area or areas may delay pregnancy, but by 40, women's risk of adverse outcome through age alone is just 1% above that of younger women. You may want to meet with a genetic counselor to identify any family, health and age specific risks and decide based on full knowledge of the possibilities. ...Read more

Endo and Ovulation: Endometriosis does not stop ovulation. Most of your fertility is because of the scar tissue. Removing an ovary also means that you lost 50% of the eggs. That means your fertility potential is lower and probably earlier menopause. Get amh & FSH levels and see an ivf specialist soon to understand your options better. Delay could mean lower ivf success. Good luck. ...Read more
