Conceiving after mirena
Hi there
I had my mirena removed on the 20th of April, had 3 days of what seemed to be a period on the 23, 24, &  25 April. because we are trying to conceive I did some OPK''''''''s which at first was very negative, although I expected my period to commence round about the 20 - 23rd of May based on the period in april i still continued with the OPK''''''''s, no period came but I did received a very positive OPK on the 23 and 24th May.

My question now is, what is my chances of conceiving and how soon can I do a HPT, because I obviously do not have clue to when my period is suppose to start.

Thank you for your input, it is greatly appreciated

Dear Mei

If you ovulated around the 23-24 of May then a home pregnancy test will only be positive around 14 days after that so if after the 14 days you have not seen your period then I suggest do a pregnancy test and if that is positive then well done but if that is negative then don’t be too worried as occasionally it may take a few months before your menstrual cycle returns after the removal of the Mirena.
