Mirena and Charting?

I've been on BCP for years (aside for a year off of it before I met DH) and will be going on Mirena 12/10 so I can self-regulate my ovaries in preparation (down the road) for baby-making.  Does anyone chart while on Mirena?  

Thanks!

Re: Mirena and Charting?

  • I didnt, but while Mirena doesnt stop you from ovulating, it might throw your temps of because of the hormones. I did still notice my body changing through the cycle, gearing up for ovulation for the first few months after insertion. But after about 6 months my periods totally stopped and the extra CM through my normal fertile window was not there anymore.

    So your plan of self-regulating might not work with the Mirena if your period stops completely. Good luck though, if you do chart let me know how you are doing with it.  

  • Mirena is still a form of hormonal BC. I don't think that it's really going to help you if you're trying to get back to natural cycles.

  • Ditto @iwalktheline. Mirena will not help you to regulate your cycles. It is still hormonal birth control and causing changes to your body so that you do not get pregnant.

  • Good to know.  That's actually the information I've been looking for, but nothing talked about that.  Thanks all!
