Welcome to ehealthforum.
If you are not practicing any contraception after Mirena removal, then there could be some hormonal or structural problem associated that is not letting you conceive. Visit your gynecologist and get infertility work-up done to see if there have been any major changes after Mirena removal. It will help to know the underlying cause and treat it to help you get pregnant. Get your partner also investigated by getting a semen analysis done to make sure that the sperm quantity and quality are fine to get you pregnant.
Take care.
