Is there a higher risk of getting pregnant with twins once the mirena is removed?

Is there a higher risk of getting pregnant with twins once the mirena is removed?

Mirena: No there is no increased risk of having twins once an iud is removed. Pregnancy rates are effected by age. As a woman gets older she has a harder time getting pregnant and also very importantly, a harder time not miscarrying (keeping) the pregnancy. Both of these factors are due to the age of the egg. ...Read more

The uterus or elsewhere.(tube) see a md to sort this out as tubal pregnancies are common when iud's fail. ...Read more
