What are the chances of my wife getting pregnant, she has had the Mirena IUD for the last 6 years and not willing to take it out. What I am looking for her to get pregnant so I am waiting when the IUD looses its effectiveness? Once she gets pregnant  with

Pregnancy with IUD: Sounds like you both are not on the same page. I recommend that you see a marriage counselor to resolve this because no matter what happens one of you will resent the other (more). Pregnancy can happen after 5 years but sometimes the presence of the IUD, no matter how old, can prevent pregnancy. If she were to conceive, IUD removal can cause a miscarriage. ...Read more

There is no problem with having the Mirena at the same time. ...Read more

I have heard many woman get pregnant after a endometrial ablation. So will I get pregnant if not on birth control. My tubes were not tied.?

Need birth control: Contraception is required after an endometrial ablation. I will not do an ablation unless the patient or her psrtner has permanent birth control. Please see your doctor and discuss this important issue. Use condoms until you can be seen. Ablations are great procedures but do not prevent pregnancy. A pregnancy after an ablation is dangerous and has very poor outcomes. ...Read more
