I have been searching all over the web for an answer, and while some peoples experience are very similar, I haven't found a situation quite like mine. I had my Mirena IUD removed on 2/12/15 (I had one in for 10 years; replaced at 5 years; no periods for the whole 10 years with the exception of bleeding for about a week at both insertion times) and had sex with my husband that night and pretty much every other day since, as we are ttc. The next morning, I had very light spotting that lasted less than a day, so I assumed that it was associated with the removal.
About a week later, I began feeling very nauseous, had frequent trips to the bathroom (especially at night), became constipated, had a egg-white looking discharge (sorry TMI) and experienced hot flashes. After a lot of research, I attributed these pregnancy symptoms as either "all in my head," or my body experiencing withdrawals of the hormones. Since I haven't had a visit from AF yet, I figured I just haven't ovulated yet and it may take my body some time to start ovulating again since I had the Mirena for so long.
Last night (2/28/15), I woke up to use the bathroom and immediately afterwards, I was back in feeling like I hadn't voided everything. After the third time of trying to void my bladder (and what reminded me of UTI symptoms), I saw very faint pink discharge on the toilet paper. I put a pad on and thought AF was finally coming. Unfortunately, there is hardly anything on the pad (like just a few spots); I'm talking way less than even a light period. When I go to the bathroom, there is still the slight pinkish tint, but not every time.
I know it's possible for a person to get pregnant right away, I've read stories about these women. But every story I have read, the woman has had some sort of period, either bleeding right after removal, or before removal, or 10 days after removal. I took a pregnancy test on 2/27/15 which was negative, but after looking up research on implantation bleeding (which apparently takes place around 6-14 days after implantation, depending on which report you read), it may be too early to tell. Has anyone else gone through this. Would I love to be pregnant now? Well sure, but I didn't think for a second we would get it literally on the first try. In fact, for as long as I had it in, I didn't think it would be possible. Any tips, info, suggestions, likes stories, etc., would be greatly appreciated!
