I got my mirena (levonorgestrel) out a nonth ago and switched that day to nuvaring. When should I start bleeding again? Breakthrough hasn't started, none after removal

1-2 months: Mirena (levonorgestrel) inhibits the growth inside the uterus and it takes a little time to grow back. With the NuvaRing you will probable have a cycle by the time you remove the second one. That assumes you use it cyclic, 3 weeks in 1 week out. If you immed. Started using continuous, 4 weeks in and immed. Switch with a new one, you may not have a cycle. ...Read more

Had my period July 1st to the 11th the day of my removal of iud mirena (levonorgestrel) had unprotected sex week of 12 to 17th now today is July 28 why I'm a bleeding?

Had my period July 1st to the 11th the day of my removal of iud mirena (levonorgestrel) had unprotected sex  week of 12 to 17th now today is July 28 why I'm a bleeding?

Your period: If your last period started on July 1, this is day 27 of your cycle and your period is due. The removal of your IUD didn't necessarily change that although it can change it for some women.There is only a 20-25% chance of getting pregnant in any given cycle (fecundity) prior to age 30 and this drops as we age. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Can u get pregnant right after mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD removal? I got it removed 4 days ago and now I am bleeding could it b my period coming that soon or?

Can u get pregnant right after mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD removal? I got it removed 4 days ago and now I am bleeding could it b my period coming that soon or?

Unlikely, but.....: You can get pregnant immediately after removal of an iud, depending where you are in your cycle. That being said, if you are only 4 days post removal, it is too early to check a pregnancy test. Additionally, your periods may be irregular just after removing the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud. I recommend you wait a week, then check a urine pregnancy test. Best of luck! ...Read more
