so im ready to take out my IUD , i've had it for about a year and im ready for it to be gone ! im ready to start trying for babies !! lol im letting my body rest for about 3 months then start trying i dont know if im ready for a period its been so long since i had a real one ! lol .



one thing when i went for a check up and i told my dr. i was thinking about getting it removed she was like " well a few of my friends had the mirena and they took it out themselves" , now me im chicken when it comes to ANY type of pain except tattoos 8)8) lol so i dont think that i can even try and do it myself , but i thought it was weird that my DR would bring that up or even put that thought into my head that I could remove it MYSELF ! never . lol



I want to start trying in november, which i think will give me a due date around august and that sounds good to me because i always wanted to be pregnant in the summer :?::!::idea::idea:

Idk about anything else, but unless your summers are cold, I would rethink trying to be pregnant in the summer! This shit is brutal! Lol. But good luck with everything!! :)

I definitely wouldn't attempt to take it out myself. I had mine taken out in Sept '10 and we were given the okay to TTC our youngest 2 months later. Took us about 4-5 months to get pregnant.

I know most people would frown upon this or judge me... but as crazy as it sounds taking out your own iud is pretty easy. I took my own out in January. I read alot of different threads and posts online of lots of people who had done it them self which made me more comfortable doing it myself. I started off telling myself if it didnt come out easy I would stop and go pay and have it removed. I just waited until my period was due (its the best time to have it removed even by a dr) and I reached up in with my thumb and pointer finger and located both strings hanging down and got a grip on them and pulled. It was slippery so it took 2 or 3 tries but it came out without any pain or any damage. I am now almost 9 weeks pregnant and couldn't be happier. ( I am glad I will not be in the end of my pregnancy in summer for sure.. that would be so uncomfortable!)

I was due a week before you last year (2012) and I was even too hot in the winter. I am almost 8 months along now and it's hell, literally. I can't sit still without sweating!!!
