Periods after mirena b**bs McGee 2 kids; Wilmington, Delaware 179 posts

So I had my mirena taken out about two months ago, switched over to nuva ring but was delayed putting it in while waiting for my first cycle , anyway had it in for 3 weeks like normal, took it out when my af was due and two days later it showed up, weird part is it only showed up for one day! We use the pull out method but when I was waiting to put nuva in we did not pull out once or only used pull out , I did test but they were negative, I'm so confused could it be possible we conceived? Why would it be only one day of period? Oh and probably not relative but I started waking up in the middle of the night to pee every night which only happened when I was pregnant both times. I'm just lost

I too went from mirena to the nuva ring (love the nuva ring btw! hated the mirena) and I noticed my periods were not only lighter, but shorter as well! It was that way for me the whole time I was on the nuva ring for 18 months. (we plan to TTC soon so Im no longer on it.)



i took a test at the end of every month just to be sure I wasnt pregnant (we didnt pull out) and never became pregnant.

Yeah mine used to last 5-7 days and then they got to be about 2-4 days. The first day was horrible then barely anything for just a few days after. It was strange! But I never fell pregnant.

I hated the Mirena. It migrated not once but twice!! And I became pregnant while using Mirena
