trying to concieve after mirena?

If i had problems getting my Mirena taken out 16 months ago, would that have caused my miscarriages and problems getting pregnant since, when i have two healthy children?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If there were problems in getting the IUD taken out, you might be at risk for endometrial injury and scarring which might affect your fertility levels. Consider discussing about it with your treating gynecologist/obstetrician. Go ahead with an endometrial biopsy (to rule out damages) and Hysteroscopy test (to visualize inside of uterus and rule out scars, synechiae etc). Treatment as appropriate would be started to help you based on examination findings and investigation results. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any unusual/abnormal/new symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
