Intrauterine device is a reversible form of birth control, which means that it protects against unexpected pregnancy while it is inserted in the uterus, and a woman id able to become pregnant straight after the IUD has been removed.


When is pregnancy possible?

pregnancy after IUDMost data suggests that a woman regains fertility immediately after the removal of IUD. Some claim that pregnancy is possible after one month after the removal of this device from the uterus. Women should be aware that there are certain differences between a copper and hormonal IUD and should discuss all the pros and cons with the doctor prior to insertion of this contraceptive device into the uterus.

Most studies suggest that generally women are able to regain fertility after the removal of IUD after the same period of time, compared to other birth control methods .


Certain variations

Intrauterine device is known to have certain risk and side effects that could interfere with the ability to get pregnant after the device is removed from the uterus. These conditions are very rare but still possible and, therefore, women should be aware of them before choosing the appropriate mean of birth control .

Incase perforation of the uterus occurs a woman may have a lower chance of becoming pregnant. There is a greater risk for pelvic infection when IUD is in the uterus. If such condition occurs, the tubes may be injured decreasing the chance to become pregnant afterwards. If a woman uses hormonal IUD, menstrual period may be delayed after removal of the device, causing a delay in fertility regain.

Thank you Spatzi. The first ultrasound was taken at 21 weeks. The gender part was done very fast and a mistake may have been made. Either way I will be happy as long as the baby is born healthy. A positive of having a girl is that I will be able to use everything that I have already for my 15 month old daughter.

Hello Daffodil, 
So it's another girl huh! At 29 weeks, why not sure if it's really a girl? Just wondering! :roll Anyway, hope everything will be ok...also for your safe delivery! 
 
Other ladies....where are you guys? :?

Hello Spatzi 
I hope that all is well with you.  
 
My update is that I am now 29 weeks with my #5 which they say is a girl. I go for another ultrasound tomorrow so we will have another chance to see if it is really a girl. Also hoping that the fluid the baby had on their kidneys on the last ultrasound has cleared up. That's pretty much it. Just playing the waiting game.

Hi Daffodil & Mamakatie, 
I am still here...like you Daffodil, checking this site every few days but nobody came in for almost 3 months more or less. So I was thinking, everybody is gone out of this site! I'm quite happy that still, some of you are here... 
 
Congrats to both of you, wishing you a baby boy Daffodil and safe delivery! I am not TTC anymore since i had depression from what had happened to me before! But if it comes, 100% welcome for sure! Goodluck! 
 
Where are the other ladies??? :?

Mamakatie I am so happy to see somebody back. I check this site like every few days and I finally thought I was just alone. Congrats, congrats, congrats on your baby girl! I hope you have a safe wonderful delivery.  
 
Anybody else still out there?  
 
My update is my original baby girl that I was trying for when I first came on this board is one now and currently making it hard to type this since she is pressing every key she can on my keyboard. lol I had my Paragard removed again to try for #5. I got pregnant the first month we tried. I am now 16 weeks with what I hope is a boy but we won't find out until almost September.  
I hope all is well with everyone else.

Hello 
 
Not sure where my last post disappeared to. I hope that all is well with everyone. I wanted to come on and tell you my update. I had my 2nd Paragard IUD removed. (The last one was removed after 4years to have my 4th child.) I had the 2nd one placed when my baby girl was 6 weeks. She's now 8 1/2 months so I had it in for a total of 7 months. I had no problems with it being placed, during , or removal. So now I am back ttcing for number 5 and deeply wanting a boy. Well we will see how this goes and I will keep you guys updated. My Midwife thinks that I'll get pregnant easily. LOL I guess things look favorable down there.

Congratulations 1moreplease on your baby girl!!! Well done :)  
Congratulations to babynumber5 and mamakatie ... how exciting, I hope you both keep well in your pregnancies. 
 
I am now 16weeks, baby due date is 5th August, I am seeing the consultant this friday, and have to have a scan on my cervix, as I may have a weak cervix - keeping my fingers crossed everything works out okay!  
 
Good luck to everyone else trying, I wish you all the very very very best xx

Thanks Daffodil for your nice words... 
If I were you, go ahead if you feel you want to try another one. It's your choice, your body and the decision is all up to you and hubby. Don't feel bad that you are taking chances away from the other. This is life...some are lucky to be given straight away, some waited much longer! You have 4 wonderful kids, good for you! I must be thankful for the only daughter I have now, she's nearly 13 and she's everything to me. Sweet, kind & loving daughter I can say. But up to now, she still can't understand why my 2nd pregnancy was terminated! She do understand but maybe, her mind doesn't accept it. Well, I told her if we are given again, then be it! She really insist of having a baby brother or sister. I am already 38 going to 39 and running out of time. Let's see... 
 
Update other ladies??? :roll

Congrats! 1moreplease. Wow 9lb 5ozs. She sounds wonderful. My daughter was the exact same weight. Amazingly she was the easiest of my 4. The other three were 7pounders.  
 
Congrats also to babycakes, babynumber5, and mamakatie. I so excited for you.  
 
Spatzi keep your head up.  
 
My update:My little girly is not 6 1/2 months old. She is the sweetest and happiest baby. She has learned how to say hi, hey, da da, ba ba(which is mama but can't quite get that m sound), bye bye. She is quite active. I want to try again but I feel so totally selfish doing so. I have contributed four miracles to the world and I feel like I'm taking somebody else chance to. I'm also not guaranteed to have a boy and I so afraid that something will be wrong with my baby after four perfect(to me) kids. Also I got my paragard fitted again. Not sure what I should do.

Babynumber5, wow!!!! Congrats too!!! I am so happy for you. This time, be careful and hopefully, no problems during the whole pregnancy. I might try again if given the chance again. I had the chance before but the circumstances during that time was so tough on me that I have to do the termination. This was not my choice and up to now, I still feel devastated! I want to thank you Babynumber5 because you're one of the ladies who comforted me during those sad moments. I am keeping my fingers crossed for you that you will have a smooth pregnancy. Take care! :)

Hi Ladies, I am 10wks 1 day pregnant!! :grin we had a scan last week (at 9wks 2days) and saw the little heart beating too :grin I am so happy, but also sooooo worried, its still early days so keeping everything crossed! I was also told after some treatment on my cervix that I have a chance now of having a weak cervix, which could mean miscarring late between 16wks and 24wks! I have my 1st midwife appointment on the 27th Jan, so I will be asking her how they are going to monitor me incase I do have a weak cervix, it would be devastating to get that far and lose my baby ... But I am also trying to think positive, I do try to not to keep worrying. 
 
Good luck everyone, sorry for you who have not yet fallen pregnant yet, and all the best to you who have. 1moreplease have you had your little baby yet? I will try to pop back to keep you updated and see how you are going, but I have trouble getting on this site sometimes???  
 
Happy new year to you all xx

Hello ladies, 
Apologies that I haven't been on here for ages. 
Sorry to hear of sad news :( 
Great to hear some positive news too :) 
 
As for me... I have just had my second depo provera jab. I didn't want to go back to the Mirena as it gave me migraines and I may TTC again next year. But in the meantime I wanted to stop my periods to help control my Endometriosis. 
I'm now 40, I have a beautiful 9 year old daughter and have a baby step-grandson, so I'm in the dilemma of just being thankful for the family I have but I still feel something is missing... 
 
Bay dust to all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Hey girls, how you all doing?? Babynumber5, how you feeling now?? I am having huge internet problems so finding it impossible to get on here, but that should be fixed on xmas eve when we finally change internet provider. I have one more week till due date, Funny to think, I have been pregnant for a year. Lol. Had my merina out in Jan, got pregnant straight away, lost that one at 8wks & 2 wks later was pregnant again!!! Madness. This is defo my last one though, so although I said i'd never do it, I am having the dreaded Merina put back in. Lol. Hopefully i'll be able to check in again soon, internet allowing. But if not, Merry Xmas to you all. I may have my baby next time I post!! :grin Good luck, plenty of santas baby dust & sticky beans all round!!! xxxxxxxxx

Thank you ladies for asking how am I doing!!! You are all too nice and I appreciate you all. Well, as for me...I can see a little light now at the end of the tunnel as my husband agreed already that if it comes again, then be it!!! He saw how devastated I was after the termination and he said, he can't afford to see me sad everyday. Ladies, it was a big impact on me and I felt I was not the same anymore and my husband saw it. He felt so sorry and he said, he wants to pay back. From this moment on, it gave a lil hope for me! Just still waiting for my first period as the termination messed up my cycle (Dr said i'ts normal). Will keep you posted.... 
What about the other ladies, how are you all doing??? Babycakes? HopeAt40?

Ok so I'm still hovering on the page. My daughter is now four months. Never would have thought it but I've actually considered to ttc again. My husband wants to. One more try for a second boy. But I have the Paragard again. Oh and for those ladies with positives (totally off subject) consider MODERN cloth diapers. If you have questions just shoot me on the mail on here and I'll answer.

hey ladies 
well Im 16 weeks and 5 days gone.Saw my midwife today and was able to hear our lil fump's (its nickname) heartbeat. Im already under the consultant at the local hospital because of my daughters growth in later stages of pregnancy. So extra appointments and 2 extra scans. 
We've decided not to find out the sex of this baby as it will be great surprise at the end of the 40 weeks. 
 
You ladies are always in my thoughts and wishing that the babydust lands on you soon xxxx

hi every im a new member. My hubby n I are trying to get pregnant with baby number 2 so the last day of my period was 10/8/11. I had my paragard IUD removed on 10/10/11 but was told I could get pregnant because I had unprotected sex the morning before 10/09/11 and should start taking prenatal vitamins. My hubby n I are still having unprotected sex but I’m starting to feel cramping every now and then, it’s been happening for the last couple of days. I’m not suppose to get my period for another 2 ½ weeks. The last 3 days I’ve been waking up with a weird taste in my mouth. Could I be pregnant already? When can I take a pregnancy test?

As for me, I went to the dr and had him do tests to make sure everything is OK, AND working right, and everything is fine. we were sent home with a babydancing schedule, and we FINALLY got a positive from the ovulation tests. so, after all this babydancing, i hope that we get a positive that stays. =) guess i'll find out in the next few weeks. My mom saw me today and said, are you pregnant? i told her no, why? and she said apparently my face looks pregnant... whatever that means. haha i told her, are u saying i have a fat face? =) haha my husband thought it was hilarious.  
i am keeping my fingers crossed, and hope that we all get blessed with BFP's this month! XOXOXO

Hi ladies, the baby is gone at 6 weeks 3 days! I did already what my hubby wanted me to do! But I am so down and devastated by this. When we are together, I tried so hard not to show any emotions...but whenever I am alone, I felt this emptiness, the pain of losing the baby. Even if it's not fully-grown, even it's a point only...I can feel the strong attachment with that baby...because it's my baby, our baby and it is inside of me. I love already too much because I've waited for that for such a long time, years! Finally it happened, and he rejected it! 
 
Even if he said last time that maybe we should not do the termination, I decided already because I don't want that baby born unwelcomed by the own father. It is so unfair for the baby if it's only one-sided! I don't know how I can recover from this pain, or if...I can recover at all! Physical pain is easy...have medicine for that! But emotional & psychological pain...there is no cure for that! I don't know if it's considered selfish wanting another baby...but the fact that I did what he wished for against my heart is not selfish at all... 
 
At this point...I would like to thank all of you lovely ladies who were with me throughout my journey! I also asked for forgiveness for what I did. Now I can finally say...I am done with TTC! I've been here on this forum for 2 years now and have seen the ladies come in & out of this forum. Thanks for all the support & encouragement you all had given me...but I will still track on you ladies once in a while to see who got luck... 
 
I will bear the pain in my heart forever...because the heart never forgets!

Hello ladies 
 
Thank you for all your congrats and kind words. My little one is now 5 1/2 weeks and she's such a pleasant baby. 
 
@Spatzi Congratulations. I hate to hear the news about your husband after waiting so long. I hope you decide to keep your little one. I hope that your husband can see that there is always joy that comes with the miracle of life.

Hi girls....been long time out of here! During those times, many things happened! I would never actually imagined that I can post this...I AM PREGNANT finally after 2 years of waiting! I should be so happy but its not complete as my husband don't want it! Yes, it's my fault actually that I planned this alone! He want me to remove it and discussed the disadvantages of having this one. I am completely devastated at the moment and my heart is breaking into millions of pcs. I don't know what to do. I want this baby but I don't want to ruin the relationship with him and my family. I cried many many days already thinking about it! So girls...lesson learned, must plan this together...not only one-sided! And there's hope after Mirena IUD. As you knew all...I had it for 10 yrs (2x5yrs) and actually waiting 2 years now...finally, it happened...but the decision is still hanging! Will keep you posted! completely down at the moment...giving you all baby dust!!!

Hello Ladies,  
This is my first time logging on here. I have been researching many other websites and have found them very depressing. I am having my Mirena IUD removed after 4 years. I am trying to decide if I should start TTC right away or wait until September to begin trying. I really want another child but don't want to rush it and risk having a miscarriage. Any advice???

Hello lovely ladies... 
 
@babygirlhopeful - good luck for next month :)  
@daffoldil - huge congratulations on the birth of your baby girl :)  
@SassyStac85 - that's great news... and make sure you rest rest rest :) 
@mamakatie - big hugs to you... I'm sure you will get good news soon xx 
 
Well my husband and I have decided this is our last month of trying... I have been offered a fantastic job opportunity, so if I don't get my (+)ve test this month (I'm due 19th August which also happens to be my daughters birthday) I am going to assume it is not meant to be.  
After all, I am 40 and have severe Endometriosis and my husband is 43 and we are already blessed with a beautiful 9 year old daughter. 
 
I'll let you know how it turns out... and in the meantime ***********baby dust to all*************

firstly congrats to daffodil on the birth of her daughter, may she bring so much joy. 
sorry to hear about your loss mamakatie **hugs** keep positive and the gift of a new life will greet you. 
Spatzi never give up hope **hugs to you to too** 
 
Well ladies after waiting for a while and numerous tests and doc appointments I can say that at the moment I am 5 weeks gone (ish)...I had a scare yesterday/today were I was getting aches in my stomach.. A trip to the docs this morning to find out that the pain I have been getting is down to a water infection. With strict instructions of rest rest and rest, no walking out in the heat(boy its been hot here) and drink loads.. Thankfully I have got these first two weeks in August off to be with my daughter and partner.  
Fingers crossed that my lil apple pip(the size of it at the mo) stays put.

hello ladies.. 
Daffodil, that is amazing news, Congratulations on your beautiful baby!! 
Everyone else, i hope all of you get your BFP's soon!! it WILL happen! 
as for me... last month, i got a positive, and i was so excited. I told my husband and he was thrilled.. i scheduled an appointment with my doctor and a few days before my appt, i began bleeding and having pains.. turns out it didnt take. =( we were upset to say the least. i feel like after losing my baby at 4 1/2months a few years ago, and then this, maybe its just not meant to happen. i've been so depressed, im 28 and i feel like im broken. my husband is trying to be super supportive and positive, but so far im just not feelin great. =( on top of that, i left my job.. no more clinique. now i got hired as the gm of ulta and im waiting to start the new position so i have to wait 3 months for my benefits anyway.. so maybe i should hold off anyway.. 
sorry for the downer post, i know its been a while, and ive been checking on you all, but for some reason my posts haven't been submitting. hopefully this works.  
 
good luck, and babydust to you all xoxo

Hello ladies 
 
I just wanted to update you. I had my baby girl on July 16th. She was 9lbs and 5 ozs. and 20 inches long. I had her without any complications and tears. Amazing since I tore with my other three 7 pounders. I'm just taking it easy and patiently waiting for my pelvic bone to return to its rightful place. I am not debating whether I should get the essure or the paragard iud again since my family is now complete even though I didn't have a boy. 
 
I will still be checking the board from time to time, hoping for good news for those ladies that are waiting. I really appreciate this forum and each of you ladies. You all deserve your positives soon. I wish you guys all the best.

babynumber5 ... I did stop looking things up on the internet, To start with I 'googled' about my chances etc thats how I found this thread, I have stopped doing that! I had to as it was getting me down more each month the witch came... But I just cannot stop thinking about it myself, I am not obsessive, just around ovulation time, check my dates match and like to know this is the best time for us to try, then from that point to the day I come on I am just wondering 'am I?' ... I cannot help it, I had an awful migraine last week, but I didn't take any painkillers, just incase! It is bound to be on our minds. How can you not think about it sometimes?  
I have symptoms AF is going to appear tuesday now too, My boobs are sore today, which I always get a few days before and I am very snappy!! I will be so disappointed this time, as Like you I did everything right, (mainly at night too) But also because Darren is working for a month in china from thursday! So have no chance of trying next month :cry I just do not understand why it is taking so long :(  
All the best, I do believe it will happen one day! xx

babycakes thank you so much for your reply, its so hard when someone says stop trying and it will happen, or just try and forget about it for a bit, how on earth do you do that when you want it so much, its impossible lol i really hope this is your month, it sounds like you have covered yourself, this is the thing i dont understand, i do it on the right days, every other day around ovulation, i dont get up after, its usually night time so i just fall asleep and still nothing, im sure im coming on i had cramps yesterday and today a little brown discharge so pretty much sure im out once again as im due the witch tomo so that makes her right on time :cry

Want another baby ... I have no idea, sorry, the best thing I think is to make an appointment with your doctor and ask them, I am sure they will be able to help you. All the best x 
 
babynumber5 ... I know just how you feel, It has been 6 months for me, I did fall pregnant but mc at just over 5 weeks, So am sure something is wrong with me! :sigh nothing has happened apart from that and its been 6 months for me. If I had took awhile with my other pregnancies I would not be so worried, but I fell first month with them both, infact didn't really try with my daughter! I feel as I am now 37 that doesn't help, and the fact I have has 3 treatments for pre-cancer cells in my cervix, one extra this time around! I try not to think about 'trying' too much, but just cannot help it at times. Like you feel i'm waiting to ovulate then waiting to come on, I don't drink, don't eat certain foods etc for two weeks each month 'just incase'.  
I am due my AF next week (19th) Darren was in the country this month, (for a change) I tested positive on the correct day for ovulation and we were very active all round the ovualtion date, so I cannot see why I would not fall pregnant this month, other months Darren has been working away alot, so I just put it down to that (rather than think something may be wrong).... If I do not fall this month, I will make an appointment with my Doctor and see if they can advise anything, I feel my age is against me this time, time is ticking! 
I do have my fingers and toes crossed for you, your symtoms maybe pregnancy symtoms too, really hope so! I no it is sooooo hard but keep the faith, I am sure it will happen soon xx

well hello ladies 
atm I have not come on.. my last period started on the 4th June but but didnt have the coil out until the 14th. I am not sure on what my cycle length as I hardly had any periods during the year I had the coil. I never had any spotting after having it out either. 
My partner and I started TTC on the 15th onwards and have virtually been trying every day.  
I dont know if I am reading into things but I have had a load of early signs.. I have been feeling sick during most of the day which was the same with my daughter it started early and all day until I was 9 weeks gone. I have also got tender and sore nipples, increased discharge and feeling tired.  
However much I just want to pee on the we have decided to be sensible and wait until the end of the week(8th -10th) before trying a test.

Welcome Trishtea... I too had the Mirena for many years (8) and had it removed on 17th December and then my first AF came on 21st but it took 42 days for my next one to appear, so it took a couple of months for my cycle to sort itself out, but now seems to be pretty regular - about 26 days. 
I did give it until April to start TTC, but I wish I had started sooner now. 
 
Wow Spatzi that is a long time TTC - I think we need some good news on here don't you? 
 
Mamakatie - any news? I'm really hoping for a positive for you... 
 
Daffodil - that's great to hear you are 37 weeks - keep well and don't forget to let us know one you've had the baby x 
 
My AF came again this month - and I was so surprised because I had so many symptoms and was convinced I was pregnant. I'm now having my doubts as to whether it will be possible for me to have another baby, what with age and my Endometriosis against me.  
I feel really down at the moment as 2 of my work collegaues have announced they are pregnant (1 of them considered an abortion) and my 19 year old step-daughter is due her baby in September and didn't even want to be pregnant! Sometimes life isn't very fair is it? :sigh  
 
But what will be, will be...

Hi Spatzi, thanks for your reply :) 
I was wondering, as you didn't have periods either with your mirena, how long was it before you got your first period once you'd had it removed?

Welcome to the forum Trishtea...Our situation is quite similar! I also had the Mirena coil for 10 yrs (2x5yrs) and unluckily, not conceived yet for nearly 2 years of trying! I had it removed Aug 2009 and since then, no luck till this moment! I can say (from own experience), let your body adjust first from the removal of that foreign thing in your body, let the uterus lining thickens (as the IUD Mirena caused thinning of our uterus) and most important of all...don't expect too much that it will happen soon as you expect! Of course, all of us are different...for some ladies, it happen soon...for the others, ages before it happens! The signs or feelings that you are experiencing at the moment maybe is just a reaction from the removal of the IUD...imagine, 10 years is very long and considering we did not had any periods during that time! So, be patient and observe...goodluck! 
 
How's the other ladies, any positive news??? :?

Hi ladies 
I'm new here. I had a mirena coil for 10 years (2 x 5yrs) and had it taken out on 06/21/11. My husband and I had sex the day before it came out and pretty much every other day since. I've now got really tender breasts and have been feeling sick for the last couple of days, and was actually sick yesterday morning. I took a hpt last night and it was negative :(  
The problem I have is that I didn't have periods at all while I had the mirena in so I have no idea what my cycle will be like or even if I'm ovulating at all... I had light spotting for less than a day 4 days after I had the mirena out, but it wasn't a proper period. 
So I'm fairly confused at the moment and I don't know whether to keep testing; I'd get an ovulation kit but because I've not had periods for 10 years I wouldn't know when to start...

Hello ladies, :) hope everyone will have better luck soon, I'm just keep telling myself it will happen eventually when its meant to. I'm actually due for my witch today, but she hasn't shown yet. I'm gonna give it a few days before I get my hopes up. Me and my dh have had a rough few weeks, family emergencies and whatnot..so we haven't BD'd as much as usual or paid much attention to days/cycles. But hey, who knows. Well, I wish everyone the best of luck, xo babydust!!

I am sorry to here about AF showing up and the other confusing cycle things going on. 
 
Just a little update. I'm full term as of this moment 37 weeks. My doctor thinks that Im going to go early. I do too but I want to make it until my shower on Saturday. I had a rough end of the day. I lost my bird that I had for 5 years. I'm so sad. 
 
I hope you guys have some positive news soon. I'd love to read something positive right now.

Morning all, I am a little confused again, I wonder if any of you have had anything smiliar... sorry if theres to much detail, but I am at a loss. My period is due today, last saturday (4 days ago) I had a small brown discharge/bleed, just thought my AF was going to come early and been expecting a larger red bleed every day since, but nothings happened, just when I wipe I would get very slight brown (old blood, so I am informed for googling) on the tissue. When I went bed last night I did have a great stain with slight pink, so wore a pad to bed exceting my AF on time, but nothing all day, not even the brown on the tissue when I wipe, nothing? I know its only today I am due on, but its been going on since saturday. I still expect to come on, as its not sounding right to be pregnant.... Its so frustrating, I wish I could just come on as normal, as its all messing with my cicle, what date should I calculate for ovulating etc.  
Just wondering if this happens to anyone else whos ttc? 
Babydust everyone.... stay strong, it'll happen one day :) xx

Just a quick Hi to everyone... Congrats, its been fantastic news for some, and 'hugs' as its been not so good for others!  
I am due on tomorrow and feel as though it will be here! so another month passes by, Darren should be home (he works away alot) the next time I am meant to ovulate, so fingers crossed he doesn't get called away on a job! It feels far to long to be trying :(  
 
Good luck everyone, babydust to all xx

Hello ladies, 
I think I might be pregnant, but not sure at the moment! 
My AF only lasted 3 days at the beginning of this month. Now my boobs are so sore and blue veins have appeared. I feel so bloated and just 'feel' pregnant. 
I'll have to wait a couple of weeks to test, but fingers crossed...

Saw the doc today who said my results were on the border between normal and borderline(which is nowhere near any point of worrying). Plus she said there would and Should not be a problem to try. So IUD is out and she said that we can start trying straight away. Although there is some discomfort so we will see if there is any BD tonight.

In a little bit I go for my GBS test. This bothers me for some reason. I just don't want to be poked and prodded today. Hopefully it is negative because I really don't want to have to leave for the hospital as soon as my contractions start.

Hey ladies  
I might have received a great BIG spanner in the post today. 
A week n half ago I had my first smear test(25yrs old) n got a letter saying I've got some abnormal cells n I've got have a repeat smear in 6 months...BUT the leaflet i got with the letter says to refrain from falling pregnant until the abnormal cells have gone/ treated.  
I still my original appointment on Tuesday so I will ask if I can or can not try... Feeling kinda down :-( 
Baby dust to you all x

Nice to see so many ladies on here today, sharing their news good and bad. 
I just wish it could be good news all round, but one thing I have learnt since I started on the path to being a mum is, It's not easy & its certainly not fair!!!! 
 
Thankyou Spazi for asking, I am doing well it seems, I have my 12 week scan on Monday so it's still all early days, am alternating between excitement & sheer terror, but only 4 more days to find out if it's still o.k in there. If all goes well I will be due on Boxing Day, Eeeek!! :) How about you?? Hows this month going?? 
 
All you other ladies, how are you?? What you all been up to?? 
 
Ladies with babies, keep well!!! 
Ladies TTC, good luck & babydust!!! 
Babycakes & Gomo12, hope you are both doing o.k & sending hugs!!!

@mznikkiey I remember you. Congrats on the baby girl! I was hoping for a baby boy too but they say it is a girl. But I am absolutely in love with her now and have bought too much pink. Oops, lol. 
 
@Spatzi Thanks for asking about me. How are things going for you? I am doing okay. I will be 35 weeks on Friday. I am just trying to get ready for her to come. I have a few back issues going on since I am a major back sleeper and can't do that now. Other than that I am fine. Even though I am silent sometimes, I'm still checking in on your guys hoping for good news. I can't seem to leave the forum until I know that you guys have had success.

Babycakes...it's so sad to hear news like this, same on what happened to Gomo12. I am sending my sympathy for your loss. If you can browse back, you can see that I was looking for you quite long time because I never heard from you since you posted that you got some problem/bleeding and that was it!!! I was hoping you were ok and just busy, enjoying your pregnancy so it is quite sad you came back to this forum with a sad news! I am sorry for that and hope that you & Gomo12 can cope up quickly with your loss! Keep the faith! 
 
Daffodil...how are you? 
 
And how about the other ladies??? Any good news, Mamakatie, Babynumber5, Supermom...HopeAt40??? and the rest of the ladies here??? :?

I am sending my symphaties to you. although no baby will replace the one you lost but keep the faith that someday soon you will be holding your beautiful perfect baby in your arms. 
 
@HopeAt40 I am so dissappointed :( at the witch showing up but I am not giving up on hoping that you will get preggers, I am spreading lots and lots of babydust your way.

Hi Everyone, Sorry I have not been on, I miscarried at 6 weeks, and I am fine about it, but I just needed not to think about it all the time, so stayed away from anything on the internet about making babies! I really am okay, these things happen for a reason, and I would rather it early then weeks later.... my sister had a still born baby girl, Hazel (about 11 years ago), it was so devastating! My miscarriage at 6 weeks is just disappointing, It simply does not compare at all!  
I found myself reading so much about babies, cycles, ovulating etc etc I felt I should just try and get it out of my mind for a while. 
 
Thank you for all your concern and tips etc ... I live in the UK and the doctors don't really seem to do much here, but I will ask about "compounded" progesterone suppositories, I've not heard of these, but as I have been told I am at risk of a late miscarriage or prem birth, due to having 2 loop electrical excision procedures and 1 laser ablation, due to 3 smear tests showing abnormal cells, do you think these would help? I worry I will not fall pregnant again due to all this, but I can still hope!  
 
Congratulations to all who are pregnant, good luck to everyone trying! and I send cyber hugs to gomo12, I am so very sorry to read of your loss, keep in the faith!! My sister went on to have a beautiful little boy after her loss... I am sure you will succeed very soon xx

Hi all, thanx Mamakatie & Sassystac85 
 
@Mamakatie, I am so sorry I rally felt this was you month but I am still a bit hopefull since you are still having some of the pregg symtoms, maybe your bleeding is nothing to worry about, lets give it a couple of days.  
 
@Sassystac85, try to relax and let nature take its cause, althoug it might take some time for you to fall pregg cause your utirine lining needs to heal from the mirena but we are all different. all the best

Hello ladies 
First time of posting but have been catching up with some of your post for the last week. 
I've got the Mirena coil fitted May last year and thankfully I am having it out on Tuesday 14th! My partner and I have decided to start trying for a baby as we believe the gap between our daughter(she is 7 n half -previous relationship) is getting too big.  
AF appeared with full force Sat despite only having spotting since Feb! I've already started taking Vit C and Folic Acid supplements to try and get my body ready..any other advise will be great.. Oh and I'm not 100% on all the abbreviations yet.. 
Wishing the best for u all and sorry to hear of your loss Gomo12

:( the witch showed up... Almost 2 weeks late, I don't understand why I was having so many symptoms and still got a bfn in the end. My boobs are still hurting. Maybe I was and it just didn't take, because it Wouldn't be the first time. :( my dh is tryin to cheer me up, saying we'll just have to try harder, and that we have time still but I'm freaked out about losing another little one.  
Gomo, I completely know what you're going thru and I am so so sorry you had to experience that. I lost a baby at 4 1/2 months, and its just crushing. I'm sending u lots and lots of hugs.  
Well, I hope everyone is finally blessed by lady luck this month and that we all get bfp's soon. Xoxo babydust to all of u lovely ladies.

Hello All, 
I haven't been on here for a while as I couldn't access the page - and I felt so lost without you all :cry  
 
I thought there would be lots of good news, but sadly not... 
Gomo12 - no words can explain how so sorry I am for your loss xxx 
 
mamakatie - it sounds like this may be your month :)  
 
My AF is due in 6 days (and counting!!). I'm not feeling very positive as we have not BD much, but I don't have my normal pre-AF symptoms either... I suppose I'll find out one way or another soon enough... 
 
Wishing everyone lots of luck this month - we could do with some good news

so sorry about the news ladies, I hope everyone gets that BFP next month. I'm going to take my hpt in a couple days, my mom and dh said they think its time. I'm still very nauseous and my boobs are hurting (which doesn't happen before OR during my mc) and I'm becoming especially sensitive to smells. We joke with my mom that she's a bloodhound cuz she has a sensitive nose and I'm smelling things that even she doesn't pick up. And of course they make me MORE nauseous. My dh is starting to get his hopes up too, so hope I along with u lovely ladies get my BFP soon. *babydust* :)

Your witch came!? Damn her! I was hoping for a BFP for u, sorry hun.. I bet It'll happen when u least expect it. :)  
I'm confused about my cycle now. I had my last period on the 25th of last month and it was late but only came lightly for like 2 days then abruptly stopped. I kind of figured it was because I was sad about my kitten dying. So, me and my DH have tried a lot this month and I'm not sure when to test again. My ovulation strips haven't shown anything at all. But now I'm feeling really nauseous. 
Question is, when should I test? Around the 21st? And can me being sad affect me ovulating? Thanks, 
* big heaping hands of babydust for you lovely ladies*

hi girls, im alittle fed up today, af is due tomorrow, and i caved in and done a hpt today and it was a bfn, so im thinking pls not again this month, i know im not due till tomo and i have no signs of af coming, but i just wish i could test and have a bfp instead of bfn all the time. 
It has now got to the point where i am thinking its just never gonna happen, we are doing the bd when we are meant to and this month i even really chilled about the whole thing, but i just know come tomo or a couple of days time the cramping will start and the witch will show her ugle head. 
my sis in law had a baby boy on wednesday so maybe that makes me feel even more desperate, dont get me wrong im really happy for them, but just so want another baby too, pls pls pls let me get my bfp i couldnt face another bfn..................................sorry girls i have no where else to let this out im feeling so down today :cry

1 more please - that's fantastic news. You must be so relieved :)
 
I've been feeling really nauseas the last couple of days - to the point of nearly throwing up at 3am! 
I'm hoping it's a good sign but I think it's too early for morning sickness as I'm only on day 20 of my cycle. 
Will have to wait a while to find out...

daffodil - take it easy... I know just what it's like - I worked in Central London when I was pregnant with my daughter and the Trains & Tubes were so hot in the peak of summer I had to start my maternity leave 4 weeks early as I could not cope with the heat! x 
 
mamakatie - I'm so sorry to hear your news. It is so sad when a beloved pet passes away :sigh I hope next month will bring you better news x 
 
I'm on day 15 of my cycle but not expecting a positive this month as we haven't BD as much as we should have!

Well, tomorrows the day. Cant remember ever being this scared, with my other miscarriages I always kinda knew they were gone & when I had my children I was confident they were ok. This time tho I'm clueless. Hate that doc for doing this to me, hope shes wrong. I should be 6wks 1day tomorrow so hoping baby is developed enough to have a heartbeat. Wish me luck (again) Lol.

Wow babynumber5 your job sounds wonderful. It would be so hard to see the babies lost though.  
 
Oh man I had an interesting day yesterday. My daughter had to take pictures outside. My husband, kids, and I were standing outside for 2 hours in the sun. I'm the teammom and my husband is the coach of my daughter's team. I didn't want to desert all the parents and leave them standing out there alone. So I stayed out there. I started feeling nauseous and dizzy. I leaned on my husband and told him I had to go and the next thing I knew I was on the ground and had fainted. I have never had that happen to me. I have never been in the later stages of pregnancy in the summer. I have to carry cold water with me everywhere that I go now. Ladies please learn from me, be careful in this summer heat.

1moreplease I have my fingers and toes crossed.. :) I hope that everything turns out ok for you..  
Sorry I haven't been on the last few days, my MC finally came (after being late) and then a few days ago my baby cat who's 12 months suddenly got terribly sick and had to be hospitalized, she passed away yesterday. Me and my hubby have been taking it hard and now the witch stopped midway thru my MC. Its probably from stress/grief.. I'm home alone right now and I'm just so sad. I know its off topic but, I just had to vent to someone, my husband is taking it terribly since she was like his shadow and I have to be strong for him. Hopefully next month I'll finally get the bfp we've been hoping for, I know that will cheer him up again.

hi daffodil 
its nice to hear from you, i too know what you mean by seeing the babies grow in the womb i work as a midwifery assistant in hospital and i work on the delivery suite and maternity ward, i see the babies some of our ladies lose, it is quite upsetting to see these babies and how they are formed during the week of pregnancy they are lost.  
 
i hope you are well and enjoying your pregnancy, good luck x

Hello ladies  
 
I know this is a bit of a side note but I thought it was intriguing. I went with my daughter on a field trip to see Bodies: The Exhibition (the real human body exhibit if you haven't heard of it). While we were in there it was a section that had fetuses. It was on one hand sad because something had to happen to the fetus in order to be featured there. On the other hand it was intriguing to see what our babies look like in the womb. The had displays from 4 weeks(that looked like a rice grain) to 28 weeks(that looked like a premie). The 28 week old was very touching for me because I am exactly 28 weeks. I was able to show my daughter how big our baby is, but I had to deal with the emotions that somebody else lost their 28week old baby.  
 
Well congrats to the ladies with positives and keep hanging for those that are waiting. I believe that your day will come soon.

Hi. I am new. I had a question about removal of a Mirena IUD. I have had mine since the birth of my daughter in '06. I have been thinking about having it removed. I haven't thought about having another child until recently. My husband really wants one, I have been nervous about it because my first pregnancy was very hard on me. So, back to my question, how long would I have to wait to start trying to get pregnant. Thank you in advance for any advice and/or thoughts. :grin

Thanks for the kind words. :) I had a few spots today but nothing besides that. Wondering if that means the witch was just late.. :/ My friend said it might be implant spotting and for me to test in a few days but I'm not getting my hopes up. Guess ill wait for next month. :) how is everyone doing? Updates?

Babynumber5, hopefully this months faint positive was your body warming up & this cycle will be sucessful !!!!!!!!!!!! 
 
Hi cutiepie, I did have a chat with my pharmacist friend about this ages ago & she said if you havn't had a period for over 3 months (& u arnt preggers) a doc can stimulate one for you with tabs/injection. They wont do anything for at least 3 mths tho as its apparently normal to miss a few sometimes. Maybe its worth nipping to see your GP. :)  
 
***** Happy Easter to all you ladies, hope the Easter Bunny has an extra special egg for you all ;) ****

I haven't taken a test yet, just got off work (and yes, I love clinique!!) and my hubby should be bringing me one home. hopefully he remembers. :) I was due yesterday/ today but it didn't come, so, I think I'll wait till easter morning to test. That way if its a BFP (fingers crossed) I can give my mom an egg that says "happy easter grandma" haha she'd totally lose it. Or maybe wait till mothers day, hmmm haha getting ahead of myself.

Well ladies, I did indeed ask hubby to go & get me a test, & unbelievably it was a BFP!!!! :eek Was so not expexting that!! Have absolutely no symptoms!! Am going to try my hardest not to get too excited. I don't have the greatest track record at hanging on to them when they are in there. Fingers x'd anyhoo. This is the 2nd time i've been preggers since having my IUD out 18th Jan so It seems I have escaped the Mirenas evil clutches!! 
 
Thankyou ladies for your much needed support & distractions, i'm not going anywhere, you're all too ace!!! :p

God, this month is just unfortunately bad. :( I'm sorry ladies, I know you'll get your positives soon, just keep your head up and semi-stress free. (I know, easier said than done) I've been stressing too . I woke up yesterday morning and I was sooo hot, I was sweating then as I stood up out of bed I had to make a mad dash to the bathroom to puke. And this morning I'm nauseous too. Maybe I'm gettin the flu, guess ill see, my MC should be here on the 20th-21st. *fingers crossed* :) *heavy handfuls of babydust to all*

Turbo86...thanks a lot! That's all I can do, to support the other ladies here who's on the same ride like me. I know how it feels waiting this long so I encourage the other ladies to be patient when they feel losing hope waiting for 6 months or more. I've been the longest one here (I guess) waiting for my 2nd baby...been waiting for 1 yr & 8 months now and still no luck. I am 37 now and felt like running out of time! I started to think that Mirena ruined my fertility being with it for 10 yrs. Oh boy! If I only knew it will be this long, I shouldn't had fitted it! My daughter just turned 12 yesterday and asked me again about having baby brother or sister...hard for me...anyway, goodluck to you and keep us posted! :)  
 
HopeAT40...good to hear from you again! Still wishing you luck on this waiting game! ;)

babynumber5 - Wow that's really interesting! I was diagnosed with Endometriosis after having my daughter 8 years ago. I was never told about the possible link to Tampons (and I used them since I was 12 until the age of 20 when I went on Depo Provera and had no periods until I came off it 10 years later to TTC). It was the reason I had the Mirena fitted 7 years ago - to try and slow the Endometriosis down but I had laser treatment 3 years ago as it had got pretty bad. I just hope it hasn't completely ruined my chance of having a 2nd child... fingers crossed.

@sibling3, my docs told me that, too, and I've been using those horrible overnighters. Would have been fine, except hubby and I couldn't wait and DTD only 3-4 days after the IUD was removed, and I was in pain for almost a week after. Oy. So definitely taking it seriously next time they tell me that. 
 
@spatzi, when I got to this forum your guidance was so helpful! You deserve forty sticky beans (but not at once), for all you've done for us. Thank you, and good luck at your next appointment! Praying your baby comes soon. 
 
@babynumber5, I am praying for you that you get the completed family your heart desires 
 
@gomo, you too! I am praying that your pregnancy is healthy, strong, and stable

Babynumber5...thanks! We will encourage each other. Our time will come...don't give up! 
 
Gomo12, thanks a lot for the kind words...well appreciated! I need it...goodluck to you!

@sibling3 I totally understand how you feel. You might try Vitafusion prenatal gummies. They don't have iron in them so if you need that you would have to take a separate pill. Also what I do is keep water beside my bed and take my pills right before I am about to go to sleep. I fall asleep before they can start bothering me.

Hi, everyone…welcome to the new ladies...this is a great site with great support!! 
 
@spatzi...thanks for asking about me...i am doing great so far, 9 weeks on Weds...feeling tired all the time and my symptoms are so different than my other pregnancies...prenatal pills are really hard for me to take so I have been taking them at night and then of course they keep me up all night...so yesterday I started taking my 6 year olds gummy vits..lol...doctor said that was fine and would be easier on my tummy…. I go back to the doctors on April 30th for another ultrasound...trying not to stress and get through to at least 23 weeks and then I will feel safer :)….how are things with you, hope all the other testing turned out with great news….i really hope it happens for you soon...i have my fingers crossed…..and your in my prayers!!!  
 
@gomo12...i know the kind of feelings your having now….i am going through the same thing...i will be 9 weeks on weds….just be happy and enjoy this time...stress is such a awful and unhealthy thing…Congrats...and my thoughts are with you!!  
 
@babycakes...hope your feeling good and all is well ;) 
 
@Babynumber5….after I got my IUD removed at the end of Jan….i did have a very light positive...and than started my cycle that next day...which lasted for 10 days...than on the 16th of Feb...i started again and that lasted for 3 days...took another test and it was neg...didn't know at that time it was my cycle adjusting itself...and than I read a positive on the 12th of March...I have no clue what that light positive was at the end of Jan….i have been thinking about how strange that was...and also I had some gray bloody tissue matter come out on the 16th when I had that 3 day cycle...maybe that was a miscarriage, not too sure...but than again also when I had my IUD removed they had to do it surgically because they couldn’t find the strings...and that was not a fun experience 3 different doctor tried to remove it...so really confused about that whole thing...maybe it was tissue from the IUD being removed surgically?....sorry for rambling...lol...good luck to you this month...got my fingers crossed….maybe that light positive is a sign that its going to happen really soon for you!! ;)  
 
@Turbo86….thanks and good luck to you...it took me two months...to be honest though me and my husband only tried on the weekends counting 14 days after my cycle and sometimes during the week….i kept the thought in my mind that if it happens, it happens and if not than we will just keep trying….pillow under my behind after and I didn’t move for 30 mins afterwards...lol...maybe that did the trick for me...i have a tipped uterus and read it helps to do that...keep positive and got my fingers crossed for ya!! Oh and another thing...after my IUD was removed my doctor told me not to use Tampons for awhile...because your uterus is open and will need time to heal and your putting something into a sterile environment….just a thought...i know its hard to just use pads...but I got the huge overnight ones...and yes they felt like I was wearing a diaper but better to be safe and listen to my doctor.  
 
@HopeAt40….good luck to you, this month...got my fingers crossed for ya!!  
 
 
To everyone here….good luck...my fingers are crossed for ya...baby dust to all~~~~~ Sincerely, xoxox

It's been a while, but it's awesome to come back and see everyone's positive attitude and niceness!  
 
@pacheco - I had mine removed on the 8th, and it's the 18th and I've had spotting to medium flow every single day. I go to a women's clinic at my hospital tomorrow, so I'll let you know if I hear anything helpful. Probably just 'it's normal' and 'everyone's different'. 
 
@sibling3 - WOW! CONGRATS!! I am so excitd for you! 
 
@babynumber5 - I am sorry AF came back, what a bitch! I hope next month is the month for your sticky bean! 
 
Baby dust to all!

babynumber5 - please don't loose hope just yet, it might just be implantion bleeding, lets be positive atleast untill you take another test. I know exactly how you feel but give it a couple of days. 
 
Spatzi- you really are one strong woman, I admirer your strength it can't be easy waiting for this long and still be so positive. Your turn will come one of these days. 
 
good luck to all of you who are still trying and congradulations to all new mothers to be.

Hi Spazi, how did your ovulation tests go at the dox?? Hope the results were positive!!! Its crushing every month but soooo glad you havnt given up hope. I know it sounds craaaaaaazy but have u thought of any alternative therapies. Im still not convinced how i feel about them, but in desperation after 4 yrs of TTC our first I tried angel healing (yeah I know, lol) & chinese reflexology. Coincidence maybe but that month I was preggers. Spoooky. :grin I'll keep things crossed for you at my end anyway. 
 
 
As for me, I've been avoiding looking at the dreaded calander this month. I crumbled this morning and by my calculations i am actually due on today! When I had my miscarriage the midwives said my hormones were so low I would get my period when I was normally due. I'm not so sure now though. I dont feel like AF coming, but I defo dont feel preggers either. Back to another month of waiting for my innards to return to normal I suppose. :upset  
 
***** Good luck to all you ladies, lets have some good news soon eh? ***** :grin

@ Babynumber5. Gutted!! So sorry :cry . Its all so unfair!! 
 
@lotsofkids. Hi :grin , I have read lots of things about the coil making you have false pregnancy symptoms, kind of a phantom pregnancy. It seems v common. What also seems common is getting wrong "negative" results on a pregnancy test. That happened to me, I was 8 wks pregnant before I got a positive, after about 6 tests showing negative. It wasnt to be though. That still doesnt help u at all, lol. My advice is to sit tight & once a week take a test till you either get a positive or you get a period. U can still TTC too. Good luck, hope you get a positive soon. :)

hi lotsofkids i had similar symptoms when i had mine removed, i think it is some kind of reaction to having the mirena removed, i too was convinced i was pregnant, that mirena does very strange things to our bodies, i wish i hadnt had it fitted :cry  
 
well ladies here is an update..................the witch is definitely here, im so gutted heres to month 7 of trying for my baby number 5 , i cannot believe its taking so long xx :(

Hi Ladies, 
 
I am new on here and I after a little help please. 
 
I have 3 children already and had my mirena coil fitted four years ago after the birth of my last son. I had it removed on March 22nd. I have had no bleeding or period since then. I feel sick all the time and I am very bloated. The pregnancy test is still negative. How long does it take for your cycle to come back to normal.  
 
We are desperate for baby number 4 and have been trying since I had it removed. I want to be pregnant as soon as possible but feel like my body is not my own at the moment. I think and feel pregnant, nausea, fatigue, moody but the test says no. 
 
Advice please.

Hi All, 
Hope all you ladies are well x 
 
Mommypacheco - I had my Mirena removed on 17th December and my first cycle was 44 days!! Then my next was 26 days and my last one was only 23 days. We only started TTC this month to give my body time to get back to normal and my AF is due in 4 days and obviously I'm hoping it doesn't appear :) 
 
supermom - try not to be too sad... your time will come x 
 
babynumber5 - I was so excited reading your updates. I thought any line however faint was a positive. I have sooooooooooooo got my fingers crossed you get the dark line that you want to be sure :grin  
 
1moreplease - I'm due on 19th so lets hope the AF stays away for both of us! 
 
gomo12 - Thanks. I may be going to my stepdaughters 20 week scan with her and I think she is going ro find out the sex of her baby. Am excited for her even though I am trying to get pregnant :) 
Congratulations to you for being 10 weeks - that's great news and I'm sure all will be fine x

Hi ladies! 
Haven' t been on this week, so busy here! Congrats babynumber5 :grin  
 
I had a question...I'm on day 16 of my period and was wondering if anyone else had a long cylce after IUD removal? I had it out on the 28th of March and started on the 31st. I'm going to call my OBGYN on Monday I think and just make sure this is normal, but was hoping some of you girls might have a thought.  
 
Hope everyone is having a great day! Congrats to all the Mommas and good luck to everyone else ;)

@babynumber 5, any news???? Yeah, always had implantation cramping when due on. My cramping was so bad with my daughter, back pain everything, I even wore towels all the time expecting to come on. It wasnt untill I was a week late & nearly threw up on the salad bar in pizza hut I realised I was preggers!! Hoping its the same for you, I have heard that bad implantation cramping is good as it means they are proper bedding in. Got everything crossed for you!!! 
 
As for me, I think I should be due on the 20th. Dont think i'm gonna be lucky this month. Then next month might be out as its my 30th bday & have discovered my hubby & pals are organising a surprise party for me. Am torn between TTC as I am despo for a bub, or have a month off & enjoy turning the big 3-0. Why is it all so bloomin hard? Lol.  
 
Anyhoo, good luck ladies, hope theres some extra Xmas pressies cooking!!!!!! :grin

Hello all and welcome all the new ladies 
I had my IUD removed on 7 Feb and I am now 10 weeks pregnant but I am scared I might miscary seeing how quickly I fell pregnant. I just have to be positive I guess. even though I am pregnant I am just edicted to this site because it helped me and I would love to be be able to support and share all your sucess stories when you all get pregnant. I will keep you posted on my progress 
babynumber5 I also rember I experianced crambs before implantation bleeding which I thought at the time was AF. I am hoping its the same thing as well in your case and pray that your AF doesnt show up. I am holding thumbs for you 
 
Turbo86 Welcome and I am also glad your cycle and uterus lining seems to be alright which means you can ttc sooner. goodluck! 
 
Daffodil - I am happy everything seems to be progressing smoothly all the best and I hope you are enjoying your pregnancy. 
 
HopeAt40 - congrats on soon-to-be a step-grandparent I know it can't be easy for you but just stay strong it will happen for you. I am holding thumbs for you. 
 
To all the ladies who are still waiting my prayers are with you all and I do believe that you will get pregnant maybe not sooner but it will happen. babydust to you all

Thanks Turbo86 
 
@babynumber5 I am so hoping the best for you.  
 
To all the new ladies welcome. As somebody stated there is so much different info that people say. I personally think that if you had the mirena you might have to wait a little for your body to get back to normal since hormones can alter things. You can try though and it might work out just fine. If you had the paragard I don't see why you can't start right away. I had mine removed on a Friday and my doctor was encouraging me to get started right away that weekend.  
 
Update:I'm now 27 weeks and moving along. I had a 3d ultrasound so that was pretty neat.  
 
To all the ladies still waiting, my heart is with you guys. I hope that the trying kicks in soon. I know you want it badly. I'm still lurking on this page until I know that all you ladies have successfully fallen pregnant. I wish you the best.

So, I thought I was through with Tampax for a while. My spotting stopped night before last, then cramps and soreness for a day. Last night I started AF: bright red, tissue, cramps, the whole nine. Good news is if there's tissue, it means my lining was beginning to thicken. Maybe. Which means I can start actively TTC! Yay!  
I have an appointment at the women's clinic on base on the 19th. Hopefully they can give me more info.

@victoria88....my spotting stopped yesturday! I have not had andy cramping or mood swings tho! I was doing a chat online yesturday w/ a ob gyn and she said ovulation won't return for 2-3wks, b/c it had stopped while the IUD was in place. I am confuesed by that b/c even in the patient information of the Mirena it says u can clearly get pregnant during removal if ovulating...IDK everyone and every person has something different to say! I guess its just a ment to be or not type thing! Good luck, I hope your cramps stop soon!

@Turbo86...I too did the BD the day it was removed HOPING...lol and started watching my BBT my is hard to follow pretty much always 97.5 yest it was 97.8 and today 97.1 ??? so IDK? I think the spotting has stopped as of today! I had my IUD (mirena) for 6 yrs NO periods the intire 6 yrs. Just before removal I was starting to the last few mths have period like symptoms and light bleeding ea mth which I would assume was my periods starting to return! SO...I too am crossing my finger (probably not) but that the BD the day of removal possibly worked! Now I am just waiting on a REAL period to start charting for Ovulation dates! 
Seems so unfair how...so many can "accidentially" get pregnant but really its hard work to fig out exactally what days u r able too!! LOL 
Good luck to you and hopefully we'll both have good news soon!

@bmirena7 
I had my IUD for 3 years and 2 months. I say my cervix is open, because when I had it removed there was a ... I don't know, but it looked like a cervical plug attached to the IUD. They told me my cervix was wide open and it was kind of like an open wound, which is why they said there was a risk of infection. This may not be true for all women, I know a lot of women have no pain when the IUD is removed and that it's a 'clean' removal. Anyway, I've never had a child either, so I could definitely be wrong, but that's what I think. 
 
I am having the brown spotting as well, which I think is sort of weird, since brown is old blood, and I was on my period for 14 days when my IUD was put in (including the day of the procedure), and then another period a year later. I don't know from what the old blood could be. I'm tempted to just go for it, but I'm making myself wait until the doc gives me a go ahead.  
 
The only thing is, we had sex two days before it was removed, and I started charting the day it was removed. Yesterday my BBT dropped big time, a little more than half a degree. Which usually means you're ovulating, only there was no CM to check. So, if I ovulated, and if there was sperm still (since it can live 5-6 days), there's a very small chance I could get pregnant. A girl can hope, right?  
 
I'll let you know what happens, definitely!

I wasn't told to wait! We BD the day it came out and this week, but I am not sure if I am ovulating or not...just hoping for a little luck :) I had (brown) spotting starting on the 10 (2days after removal) and still have a lil not much tho. I wouldn't consider it my any means a period yet???? (no red) I have never had or concieved a child so I am not aware if my cervix is open etc??? I did buy some ovulation kits just incase but this mth I think I will just wing it! Keep us posted on your venture...lol and Good Luck!

1moreplease, thank you! I'm so sorry about your m/c. I didn't even see the post and feel like an insensitive boob for asking. Thank you for being willing to share your story over and over to help us. It really is a huge help. :)  
 
victoria88 I don't see your original post, but I see a reply that says you had yours removed on the 8th. Of April? If so, then me, too! Sounds like we should start a club with bmirena7. ;) 
 
I'm really hoping I get the okay from my doctor on the 19th. I'm having trouble waiting, but that's usually my problem. I wanna get started! Last night hubby and I had to use a condom, which sucked, because I can tell my cervix is still wide open from the removal. *sigh* The waiting to start, the waiting to POAS, the waiting for a BFP, the waiting for labor.... good gracious, we do a lot of waiting! Good thing I'm a military wife and have a lot of waiting experience. Sheesh.

Hiya Turbo86. I am also relatively new to this forum, I had my IUD removed early Jan, had few days slight bleed then a break for 5 days then a proper period lasting just over a week. I then got pregnant straight away, I didnt know for sure for ages as preg tests kept coming back neg, which after reading these posts I think is a common occurance after IUD removal. When I did get a positive result I was already 8 wks preggers. 4 days later I miscarried. Im not sure this was down to the IUD though, everytime I TTC I always miscarry the first baby. Hope you have better luck!!! Many, women get preggers straight away & are fine. I'm just happy the IUD hasnt stuffed up my fertility, after reading alsorts on the internet I had terrified myself. Lol :grin  
 
@babynumber5 still hoping AF has stayed away!! :) 
@hopeat40 Fingers x'd it all happens fast for you. :)

Hello all, I'm brand new to the board,but I've read as much as I could. It seems like we all have the same questions and hopes and concerns coming on here, which is reassuring.  
 
Congrats to babygirlhopeful and daffodil, that's awesome! 
 
I had my Mirena removed on the 8th, and spotted red for a day and brown for a couple days. I'm now 4 days Post IUD and I have had a few spots yesterday and today. I have a doctor's appointment on the 19th to check everything is okay, but I am so so tempted to just go for it. Did anyone miscarry after IUD?

Hello ladies x 
My AF is due on 19th so I'm really hoping it doesn't appear :)  
I'm going to be a step-grandparent in September, so I'm definitely hoping to be pregnant by then otherwise I think I will find it hard to deal with :sigh 
 
babynumber5 - Fingers crossed your AF won't come tomorrow!  
mamakatie - hope the baby dancing has worked :grin

My stats, i had my iud removed a few months ago after 6 years (I had the paragard non hormonal iud) At the time of removal I hadn't had my period for 3 months and I was experiencing bloating in my midsection (I went up 2 pant sizes!) I had pains inside, my breasts got bigger and I was having extreme emotional issues. I even got inconclusive responses on hpt's. It was like a phantom pregnancy. After having the iud removed, I got my period within 2 days and my cycles have been regular ever since, I went down 2 pant sizes and everything went back to the norm it was soo weird.. I totally regret having it put in. And hopefully it doesn't affect anything in the long run.  
 
For those who are new, welcome, and those who are still trying, I still have my fingers (and toes) crossed hoping that you are blessed with your little bundle of joy soon :) xo *babydust*

@victoria88 I am interested to follow you, as I too had mine removed on the 8th@ 11am...I am curious to see how are symptoms are alike and different! I had no bleeding/spotting nothing until Sun and very minimal and more today but again very light! I assume its just from the removal and not a AF??? I have felt dizzy quite a bit tho and very small amounts of light cramping. Again, all I am sure just from the removal! Keep me/us posted on what continues to happen....Good luck!

Well mine is out after 6yrs (removed on the 8th) Feel fine! I have had (dark)spotting starting on the 10th and cont today...seems that may be normal when I read others. I have felt slightly dizzy and maybe very little cramping! I feel I want to get pregnant so bad I look for symptoms! LOL.....I was hoping I was one of those lucky few ovualting when removed and concieve right away...wishful thinking! ;)  
So I assume I am normal to have a little spotting and we'll c when AF actually comes...

Hi victoria88, people have differing opinions as to when its best to ttc after having your iud out. Some think its best to wait a few mnths to let ur womb lining thicken. I personally got straight to it, lol. After removal I had cpl days light bleed. A week & half later I had a period & then got pregnant straight away!! Unfortunately I miscarried @ 8 wks, this was in no way due to my womb lining, scans revealed it was perfectly as it should be for an 8 wk pregnancy, I just had a duff egg!! I think you just have to go with your heart & what will be, will be. :) Best of luck & hope to hear good news from u soon. x

Its out!!! :) So well see how it goes! We BD this morning so if I am ovulating now fingers crossed maybe I will have as good as luck as some of you others with it happening FAST! My OB said it could be 3-6 mths before my cycles go completely normal...might be a guessing game for a bit! Hoping for the best

I'm very happy to have found this forum, most things I have found on the internet have been old material and there really wasn't anyone to talk with. 
Unlike most of you here, I'm not tring to conceive. My husband isn't ready yet, and I'm not sure I am either. 
I had my Paraguard placed in 2004 after having some very negative reactions to depoprovera. I loved the iud. My periods were heavier and more painful, but it was worth it.  
In August of 2010 my Paraguard was removed because the pain from my periods became unberable, and would radiate down my legs. The doctor said that it would be best to remove it, see how I was doing in 3-6 months and then talk about putting a new one in. why did I ever listen to that man? 
They said I would have bleeding upon removal, but I didn't. I waited for my period to come in Sept., I had 18 hours of spotting and that was it. Not even enough for a pad. In October I noticed very bad pain about the time I should be ovulating, from that point until my cycle was due my breasts would swell and become painfull. I would have horrible cramps, then a few hours of spotting. I thought for sure I was pregnant, took test after test and they all came back negative. I went to the Doctor and was given birth control pills to start my cycle, but that didn't do anything at all- not even spotting. I called the doctor back and I was informed that they were not concerned about my lack of period. I decided to wait a few months and just forget about it. After the new year came, I still didn't get a period, so I decided to try a new doctor. They ordered bloodwork, and that came back normal, it even showed that I am ovulating. They ordered a ultrasound and that came back normal. Then we tried the provera withdrawl test, and I still didnt get a period. Now it is April. They want me to continue taking the provera every month until I get a period, but at this point I'm going to try to find a RE that accepts BCBS and see what the next step is. I'm worried that somehow the IUD caused Asherman's.  
I'm confused because I'm not sure where to go from here and I can't really find anyone that has gone 8 months without a period.

Hi All, 
Apologies for not posting for a while... my system keeps crashing!! 
Although I don't know any of you personally, it breaks my heart to hear sad news :cry so I hope luck turns around for you soon... 
 
This is my first month TTC - although I had my Mirena removed 17th December, I wanted to give my body a few months to get back to normal as I didn't AF for 8 years while using the Mirena!!! 
My AF is due around 19th April, so fingers crossed it will stay away... 
 
mamakatie... A friend of mine has been TTC for a year and a specialist has just told her to BD every other day, not every day as it makes the little tadpoles stronger? So that's the advice my hubby and I have been folllowing too :grin  
 
Good Luck to all those TTC - if this is our moth we'll have something extra to celebrate at Christmas :grin

Mamakatie...thanks! Tests are currently being done and everything so far ok with me. Keep us posted... :)  
 
Bmirena7...welcome to the forum! In my case, period came after 6 weeks (exactly what my OB-Gyne told me). But all of us here is different...some came right away, some weeks after IUD removal. Whatever it is, just take note when the first period will come so you can track down your ovulation period. Goodluck!

@bmirena7...I had mine removed on march 28th and some spotting that day then on the 31st I started my cycle. that first day was like a normal day, the second seemed like the end of my cycle (very lite), but since then just like a normal cycle. I'm on day 6 and I'm waiting to see what happens, some ladies have said that their first one was longer than usual. Everyone is different but for me it started right away. Just remember to keep track of when you do start because ovulation is usually 14 days from the start of your period:) Good luck to you and keep you in my prayers!  
 
Hope all you other ladies are well! :grin

I have had an IUD for 6 yrs now 1st one for 5yrs and its just been 1yr with the new one! NO periods ever. I am having it removed on Fri, Due to with this new one every few mths I have bleeding after intercourse and cramping. Just don't like how I feel with it anymore. Thinking I want kids....I am very curious as to when I will start my periods after removal? Instantly? or will it take a mth or so? I am 31 and fig if I want kids now is a good time to start trying. So I am trying to school myself on when I will be ovulating and when my periods will resume when I can expect to be able to concieve etc....I am leaving it at god's will I will get pregnant if I am ment to and when I am ment to, but wanted the basics LOL....any advice is appriciated!

@ mamakatie. Some say not to BD every day, it lessens the amount & quality of your o.h's lil swimmers. Every other day is what the docs advise. For ovulation on the 8th/9th I would defo say its best to BD the day before (7th) so there some "waiting" there for when the egg pops out, I wouldnt think it would be too harmful to try on the 8th & 9th aswell, just to cover all bases. Lol. Thats my tried & tested method, along with a pillow under the bum after & its worked 5 times so far!! (only managed to have 2 children tho) Good Luck !! :)

@ babycakes, aww hun, I am hoping and praying for everything to work out, have just gone through similar a cple weeks ago & totaly know what you mean, its bad enough to miscarry (which hopefully u arnt!!), but it takes soooo long!! When all u want is to get back to ttc again!! 
 
@spazi, hopefully knowing that the tests are being done will be reassurance enough for you to relax & concieve. Thats exactly what I did, we ttc with our 1st child for 4 yrs with no success, I was refered for fertility treatment & really felt the pressure come off, 6 mnths later I was pregnant naturally! Fingers & toes x'd for you.  
 
As for me, this week I have been told by 3 seperate close friends that they are pregnant & they are all due within a week of when I would have been due!! They dont know I have had a miscarriage & obviously I wouldnt rain on there parade but I feel like my heart has been pulled out & stomped on, ok maybe slight exaggeration. Anyhoo, i think I may be at my fertile time so hoping to catch that egg but not holding out much hope for this month. My main worry was that having the marina may have stuffed up my fertility, but since I got pregnant straight away I am feeling a bit more relaxed.  
 
Luck to you all!!!!!!!!! :) xx

@babycakes...don't stress and relax….you never know what our bodies can do...keep positive and if your still showing positive after this week ask your doctor about "compounded" progesterone suppositories….they really help...when I was pregnant with my now 6 yr old I was put on them to help support my pregnancy and I am also on them now...it has to be done in the first 12 weeks...good luck to you and I have my fingers crossed for you!!  
 
@Spatzi….last Saturday I was roaming through all of the posts and my heart really goes out to you...i am new to this forum and you have been so supportive for a long time to many ladies on here and you have not given up on your struggle...i hope that struggle becomes your strength soon and you get that positive that you have been so patiently waiting for….that's great news about all your testing!!...wishing you all the best of luck!!! 
 
@babynumber5...wishing you all the best of luck...sorry your husband got sick :( but just keep positive and remember that those little swimmers can hang around for 5 days (and wise tales state that girls are slower swimmers than boys)!! 
 
@1moreplease…..very sorry to hear about what happen...i have been there, just hang in there….i am wishing you a great ride this time…..us informed, fingers are crossed for you!!!  
 
@daffodil…..Congratulations, 26 weeks that’s great news!!! Getting past that date of viability really puts your heart at ease...good luck to you and keep us updated!! 
 
@Mommypacheco….i had spotting a few days after my IUD (Paragard) was removed (23 of Dec.) and the following week I had my cycle on the 29th of Dec. again on the 29 of Jan...both cycles lasted around 10 days...i then spotted on the 16-18 of Feb...that was very confusing for me and I was told different things after I found out I was prego on March 12th…1.) it was implantation and then I really found out that it was 2.) my cycle adjusting itself going by my ultrasound being 6 weeks 1 day and my conception date was March 2...i am not sure about the Mirena IUD at one time I did have that IUD and didn’t like how I felt while having it in, so got it replaced with the Paragard….although by reading a lot the posts from other ladies on here they had experienced the same thing with the Mirena and got pregos after wards...good luck to you...hope its sooner than ya think!!!  
 
Good luck to all the ladies on here ~ Sincerely xoxox

Thank you for all your kind words, I am really grateful xx 
I started bleeding (red like period) 3pm friday afternoon, went on all night and all saturday, there was little bleeding last night, and it has started again today (sunday morning) but alot less at the moment. It is like a light period, not heavy and no real pain or bad cramping. I have rang the emergency gyno number I was given by the doctor, and have been told to take another pregnancy test in a week and half!!! when I will be 6and half weeks.... I took one this morning that still showed positive, but I guess if i have miscarried, it still would show high enough levels today anyway.  
 
I hate the not knowing, my partner is more positive, thinking its still going to be okay, but I am just wanting it over, so we can move on and try again! Of course I would love this to work out okay, but if not, Would like to know now, it will be a very long week and half wait! 
 
good luck to you all xx

@babycakes...I hope everything is okay. I've been reading through old posts and it sounds like you have been up against alot of obstacles. @1moreplease...I'm so sorry :cry Don't get discouraged! 
 
I'm so excited to get pregnant! I'm hoping that only having one day of bleeding means that maybe I caught a fertile day ;) Right now I'm just trying to be VERY optimstic. I took a ovulation predictor test today (negatve) and was just going to take one every 2 days or so and try and catch it. I figure between doing that and taking a pregnancy test every month I should be good. Good luck to everyone and congrats to all the mommas!

Quick update, I have started bleeding again this afternoon, so its really not looking good :cry  
Been back to doctors but its just wait and see what happens over the weekend ... your experiences of bleeding and getting through it have helped, I will try and keep thinking positive, hopefully i'll be a lucky one.

Hi Ladies, i'm another newbie, although i've actually been "stalking" u guys for a few months ;) I had my coil removed in early January & ttc straight away. I was worried about my fertility as have had slight problems before & thats when, trawling for info I stumbled across you guys. I hadn't had a period for the 2 years I had the coil. About 4 weeks after its removal I started to get full on pregnancy symptoms, I left it till 6 weeks had gone & took a test, it was negative. I then carried on testing every week for another 4 wks, feeling more & more preggers, each one coming up negative! I then bought a clearblue test with conception indicator which not only told me i WAS preggers but I was over 5 wks (the maximium it can tell u) as u can imagine I was over the moon. A week later I bleed profusely & my poor bubba was gone. Hosp confirmed I was 8wks & 1 day :cry. Anyhoo, my mission is to get back in the saddle. I want my baby & will get it, lol. Hope I can join you guys on this rollercoaster ride. Luck to you all!!!!!! :)

Hi Ladies! I'm new on here, but it sounds exactly like what I'm looking for. Honestly I had never used BC (besides condoms) until after my son was born and then I got the Mirena IUD. We're ready to go for baby #2 and I had it removed Monday 3/28. I ha spotting that day and then nothing till yesterday. I am assuming it was my period because it was a normal flow and I was crampy all day and just a little grumpy. So this morning I get up and nothing! I'm just wondering how many of you had this kind of thing happen. I'm trying not to go overboard here, but I so want to get pregnant right away that maybe I'm just overthinking. :)

Thank you to everyone on here for your kindness, I am so grateful to you all ... I went to the doc's yesterday and he said my little bleed is quite common around 4 weeks, so not to worry! I only have to go back if I get pain or more bleeding. He didn't send me for blood tests, said the 3 tests I have now done confirm I am pregnant and will send off the forms to the hospital for my scan appointment, which won't be for another 7 weeks!! It seems so long away, I had to make an appointment to see the midwife for mid may. Hopefully everything will be okay, still very nervous, These early weeks seem so long and worrrying, But I am sooo happy to be pregnant :grin  
For people just reading I had my coil taken out on 9th feb 2011, had my 1st period 26th Feb, fell pregnant in March! I am now 4 weeks, baby due date 4th December 2011. So it is possible to fall quickly after a coil removal. I brought some cheap ovulation strips, which showed negitive! so they didn't work! so don't worry about that either!  
 
babynumber5 ~ I hope this is your month too, It will happen, keep thinking positive xx 
 
daffodil ~ Congrats, 26weeks, thats fantastic!! it seems ages away for me, I hope you can relax a little now! being pregnant is so worrying! well done xx 
 
sibling3 ~ Congrats too... thanks for all the advice, its really helpful knowing your not alone. It is so hard not to worry, but I will try not too!!! All the best xx 
 
gomo12 ~ Conratulations, thanks for the kind words. It really does help looking on here and seeing others in similar situations being okay... all the best xx 
 
Good luck to all the rest of you too, All the positive ladies and all the ones trying! I am sure we will all have a bunble of joy in our arms at some point! xx

@sibling3 I was on pins and needles reading your post. I had to reread a couple parts a few times because I was so nervous. Silly me. Happy it turned out well. Congrats!  
 
Congrats to all the other positive ladies.  
 
I still wish the best for all those still waiting. Hang in there ladies.  
 
*Update-I'm 26 weeks tomorrow(by the time I post this it will be.) My baby has reached viability so I feel tons better. I visit an extra doctor to monitor my thyroid levels and the baby so lots of ultrasounds. Everything is so far so good.

I wanted to share this with all of you as well. I am high risk do to several miscarriages and i have to be placed on progesterone suppositories, to thicken my uterine lining. I asked my OB today about IUDs and them having an effect on the uterine lining. I heard that IUDs make the uterine lining thin and he stated that the Paragard does not do that but the Mirena does. And this is why along with hormones, and your cycle adjusting they advise you to wait several months to conceive. He stated that they also give progesterone suppositories to women that are trying to conceive as well!! Of course you have to have your lining tested and blood work done on your progesterone levels to confirm this..everyone is different!! Good luck again to all of your this month!!! Thinking of you babycakes relax and dont stress yourself out, i know its hard not too (I know i was there last week).....and babynumber5 got my fingers crossed for ya this month!! BABY DUST TO ALL OF YOU!!!

Sorry correction....I found out when I was only a little over 3 weeks. And the doctors were going by my last cycle that was on the 31st of Jan and that lasted for 10 days and not the 3 days of bleeding that started on the 16th of Feb. they were wrong!!!!! ~ Sincerely, wishing everyone the best of luck this month!!!

Hello, everyone and congratulations on the positives. I posted my situation on 3/15/11 and also updated everyone with my situation after. My doctor had to refer me to another doctors office because I am high risk. I went last Wednesday 3/23/11 for my appt. and they did the usual blood work and decided they could fit me in that day for a ultrasound. As they were doing the ultrasound the tech was really quite and I asked if something was wrong. She stated she was going to have the doctor come in and let me know what was going on, he started asking me all kinds of questions and stated I should be showing a lot more than what they saw. I than asked them "WHAT DO YOU SEE"!!! And he stated all that was there was just a yolk sac, no fetal pole. I was crying at this point and he stated that I may have miscarried or it got to that point and stopped growing, I than had a million and one questions. He told me that first comes he gestational sac then the yolk sac and a few days later the fetal pole. So, he had my HCG levels taken 2 days apart Weds and Friday, while I was getting my blood drawn on Friday the tech said that she wouldn’t let me wait over the weekend and that she would call me as soon as she got the results in. By that afternoon I was a mess, she called me and stated all looked good they were rising the way that they should be (Weds..37-39 and Friday..58-59) and not to worry. So they wanted me back in on 3/31/11 (today) for another ultrasound. And, they saw my little baby, fetal pole, heart beat (137) and all!!!! So, thinking back to the three days in Feb. where I had bleeding my doctor said that was my monthly cycle adjusting itself and going by the 16th of Feb. would put me right where I should be 6 weeks and 1 day. Keeping my fingers crossed!!! Please if you find out really early don’t get upset or stressed out or even if your situation is like mine. I found out on the 12th of March and my tests were light positives and those were with the cheap dollar store ones, I than bought a more expensive one and it was darker, so I found out when I was only a little over 3 weeks. And the doctors were going by my last cycle that was on the 31st of Jan and that lasted for 10 days and not the 3 days after that when I bleed on the 16th of Feb. they were wrong!!!!! ~ Sincerely, wishing everyone the best of luck this month!!!

Thanks...im wanting to conceive closer to june so maybe I should have it removed soon so I can have time to adjust and let my body get used to not having the extra hormones then just not try but maybe let it happen...i dont know the whole trying thing is making me super nervous lol I'm also worried because I'm as busy bartender and I plan on leaving after the summer but I remember my first trimester being very exhausted!

Hi Ladies, I missed you all. 
Congrats to you babycakes , your experiance sounds exacly like mine. I was also devasted cos I thought I was miscaring and mine lasted 2 full days. I took 5 preg test afterwards which all came out negative I was conviced I lost my baby but after 6 day I started having sore breasts and some of the prego symptons. Dont worry too much just take it as it cumes atleast in your case you prego tests are positive. I am now 9 weeks prego. 
 
adrians Mommy - Welcome. I think its better if you ttc sooner than later cos thats the only way you will know for sure if can fall pregnant. Normally your cicle returns to normall after removal but every woman is different. 
 
babynumber5 - I am holding thumbs for you and I hope this month is your month

Just to update you this morning, I have not had anymore bleeding since last night. Took another pregnancy test this morning and it is again positive, darker line this time too! I never had bleeding with my other 2 but know some people do get implantation bleeding??? I am only 4 weeks gone, It is really worrying, I also feel if I am going to miscarry, I would rather it sooner then later! Not sure what to do? go doctors now, or wait for a few days to see what happens .... feeling very confused! xx

I was due on yesterday, (it is our real 1st month of trying, since removal... I had one period after removal, then was due on yesterday for the 2nd time) 
I didn't come on, but have signs like sore breasts, slight stomach pains on friday. Still nothing today (sunday) so took a pregnancy test, and there is a very faint 2nd line!! I thought I may be seeing things that weren't there, so asked my partner, and he can see it too! But don't want to get to excited, will wait afew more days and take another, hopefully it will show darker lines!! 
 
Good luck to everyone...fingers crossed for us all xx :)

Hi ladies, 
This is my 1st time on here, my boyfriend and i are trying for our 2nd baby (his 1st,my 2nd). I had my IUD (paragaurd) removed on March 4th,2011, which i had in for 3yrs. I was due for my period on March 19th,2011 and didnt get it til the 24th. How long does it take to conceive after removal? I know it hasnt even been a month just overly excited!

We couldn't TTC all of my most fertile week, as Darren got sent away with work for 3 days, then I was poorly :sigh with a sickness bug! but hopefully the 2 days we tried may of brought us some luck ????  
My ovulation stips didn't even show a dark line that week either??? so I am really ruling out falling pregnant this month.... due on 24th/25th March. So waiting game now.

@sibling3 - congratulations - that's wonderful news x 
@babygirl528 - welcome aboard! I had my Mirena removed on 17th December after 8 years and my first cycle was 40 days! But my last one was 27 days. What I have found reading all the comments from the ladies... is that everyone is different so maybe your body is just getting back to normal... or maybe you are pregnant :grin Only time (and a few pregnancy tests) will tell, so best of luck x

To: babygirl528,  
Hello, your situation sounds like mine (posted 3-15-2011, except i had the Paraguard) everyone's hormones are different. And, maybe its just not showing positive yet because its too early to tell. I would make an appointment with your doctor. I took a lot of test and some were light positive and some neg. and then i bought first response and it showed a dark positive, that was just over this past weekend. My sister took many pregnancy tests and they were all neg. even one from her doctor. She than asked for a blood test that confirmed she was pregnant. Good luck to you and crossing my fingers for you that you are pregnant. ~ Sincerely

Hello Everyone, went to my appointment and it was confirmed. My due date is Nov. 5th, 2011. I asked again about the spotting that i had on the 16th of Feb. because i am now worried about that. The doctor stated again it could have been from the IUD removal or that it could have been due to implantation. So, i go back to the doctors on March the 31st and she is going to set me up with an ultrasound. Because we are a little confused about my due date. Good luck to everyone here, i will keep all of you updated. ~ Sincerely

I had my paraguard removed on the 23rd of Dec. and had some light spotting afterwords. The following week I had my cycle on the 29th of Jan. which lasted 10days. I was late a few days going into my next cycle so decided to take a pregnancy test. One was very light positive and the other negative. The following day i started my cycle on Feb. 1st which also lasted 10days. Than on Feb. 16th i woke up with really bad cramping and found some gray tissue matter the size of a paper clip. That night i started spotting and this lasted a few days i went to see my gyn and she did a pregnancy test and it was neg. on Feb. 25th and stated that she seen white blood cells in my urine. She stated that i had an infection from the IUD removal and put me on an antibiotic, she said the gray matter could have been from the IUD removal and that she had heard of this before. By March 12th i did not get my cycle and was curious bought 2 pregnancy tests and both were very dark positives, i was in disbelief and bought 2 more different name brands and both very dark positives. Has this happened to anyone else here, i go tomorrow March 16, 2011 to confirm this. ~ Thanks for reading

Hi Ladies!! I'm so :grin :grin :grin although I haven't been to the doctor but I swear my tummy is growing cos non of my trousers fits, I still cant believe I fell pregnant so quickly. I am not sure how far long I am but will be scheduling an appointment with my obgyn soon. my copper iud was removed on the 7th feb and had light spotting on the 16 till18 feb and my periods were due yesterday.

hi ladies well i tested today and it was a bfn but i will test again on wednesday as af is meant to arrive 14 days after ovulation and as i ovulated 5 days late i guess af is gonna be late this month too :sigh  
 
babycakes: get clearblue digital ovulation sticks you can get a pack with 20 sticks in they are great and very easy to read if you ovulate you get this :) if your not you get a circle they are brilliant and def worth the money good luck x

Hi everyone,  
babynumber5 I would test if i was late, I don't know if you will be 5 days late if you ovulate late? I think it just depends on each person, as some don't always ovulate mid cycle, yet still have 28 day cycles???? sorry if i'm no help! fingers crossed you are pregnant  
 
I am feeling very low :sigh :sigh :sigh  
My partner was meant to be working in Nigeria for 3 weeks, but it was delayed, so i was really happy as it fell when i would of been ovulating!! I brought some Ovulation strips from ebay to check my timings are 'average' mid cycle, I used them from the start, and no line showed, which was good as it was not meant to, then this past week it started to show but not 'as dark or darker' then the test line (so it says i am not ovulating) and now it is starting to get really faint! so according to the test, i didn't ovulate at all, I had brought 2 dofferent kinds of tests and only tested with the other ones today, and that line is much darker then the strips i had been using???? still not as dark as the tst line, but not far off! so perhaps this set would of showed I was ovulating some days ago????? we have still ttc every other day this week, but I feel very low as I know some people can miss ovaltion some months, but still have periods! My parnters work permit is through and he will be leaving next monday now for 3 weeks! so I miss next months chances (if i ovulate!) I just feel :cry so sad, we are up against it with him working away so much, so if i now don't ovulate each month either, what are the chances of me falling pregnant??? feel i will only ovulate when he's not in the country :sigh (for update, I had my coil removed 9th feb, had period 26th feb, so this is my first full cycle after removal) 
 
Good luck to you all & welcome newbies xx

Hi everyone... 
Firstly... Welcome to the new ladies... Congrats to all who have babies on the way... and to all those TTC - keep positive - your time will come :)  
I'm a happy bunny at the moment - my recent cycle was 27 days - nearly perfect after only 2 months since having my Mirena removed. And I'm off all my migraine medication - and haven't had a migraine :grin  
So I'm giving it one more month... and then I'm going to TTC. I can't wait... and neither can my husband ;)

Hi All. @ Con1 it differs from every woman as we are all different, some conceive right after removal while others take a while to conceive. as for your periods just give them some time(a month or two) they should be back to normal 
 
Congradulations to you baby number two!! 
 
Mamma_darling - Im glad and relived atleast someone relates to what I am going through cause I was begining to think Im loosing my mind. I will keep my fingers crossed for you and I hope the witch doesnt show up for the next 8 months. 
 
All the best to everyone whos ttc

Hi All! I've been reading this fo rum for a few days now and really love u all.......... 
I had a Copper IUD inserted around 10 months ago. I hated it for the first 3 months but got adjusted to it later. But we decided that we want another baby (my daughter is 3 yr 2 months) n got my CuT removed on my 5th day (just after my period)i.e. 22nd Feb.Now, my cycles are pretty regular 30 days and I experience Mittleshmirz i.e. mid cycle pain that occurs during ovulation. I have somehow learnt to recognise it from a few months now. So we had a good time for 2 days after thatToday is 18th day and I somehow have this"feling" that I am pregnant. I know I can't substantiate it in any way ...objectively .......but can I be carrying or it is just my mind so preoccupied with the thought of pregnancy that I am experiencing this? I also had slight lower abdominal pain for 2 days .....and thought it was due to implantation......that's y i m also a lil more sure of the the science of it......but again...may I b preg or not.....will have to wait until my next period to b sure...that's 17/18th so will have to wait until 20th atleast......I'm already tensed with the upt result......has anyone gone thru this stage ???? 
 
Gomo12: I was exactly in this state when I conceived my daughter.....3 negative urine preg tests and only my feel that i was preg..........but my thougfhts were confirmed on a vaginal ultrasound....so just keep ur fingers crossed...u must have been blessed!

Babycakes, 
Thanks a lot! Last week already been to the Dr for the first time to check it out! Had an ultra-sound and the result was very ok...ovary is very good as well as the uterus. Today, have to go back to my OB-Gyne to have blood test (2nd step) before the 5th day of period to check the hormones. Let's see afterwards what's the next step my Dr will tell. Haven't use any ovulation kit before so I really don't know when I'm ovulating, and if I am ovulating! I am 37 now and feeling like running out of time! My daughter is already 11 years and is desperate to have a baby brother or sister! Been waiting this long (1 1/2 yr) because I wanted it to come as naturally as possible (w/o DR) but it seems like not happening! That's why already seek the help of a Dr. only last week! I do hope you ovulate sooner! Goodluck to you too! 
 
Gomo12, 
Sometimes, a home pregnancy test can come out negative after IUD removal. Your hormones are adjusting still without this foreign thing so it can give a false result. If you are still having the preggy symptoms in the following days, better go and check it with your Dr. You might get a surprise! All the best...

**UPDATE** I am officailly confused :? Home preg test came out neg but I am still experiancing some of preg symptoms (sore breasts and always sleepy) and I wonder just how accurate are home preg test? is it possible that my body is still adjusting to having the IUD removed? its my first time and I don't know exactly how I should be feeling except for what I've been reading on what to expect. 
 
Spatzi I am really sorry but there's always the next month and I am sure it will happen 
babycakes - I hope you do ovulate sooner and dont rule out March yet you just might be suprised 
Daffodil - Congradulations I wish you all the best through out. 
to all who are still trying just hang in there it won't be long the witch will have no choice but dissappear one of this days

Hi Everyone.... 
I got my period on Saturday, a little show on friday but it was there Saturday! So on time really, had my coil removed on the 9th, I am pleased my cycle came regular and i'm not left wondering. It is my first AF since my coil removal, so I just have to wait and see if i can conceive quickly! My partner works away alot so this is not going to help.... I should be most fertile between 8th March - 13th March (according to my Blackberry app) :) But my Partner is flying to Nigeria for work on the 7th!!! :sigh for 2 - 3 weeks ... I am hoping I ovulate early and we could be lucky! But I am realistic too and feel its more like we should rule out March now :cry But what another month, it will soon pass, Just keeping my fingers crossed he's not sent somewhere else the next time i'm fertile!! I have brought some ovulation tests strips, as i feel it will be nice to see that it does happen between the dates the ovulation calculators say. I will keep you posted.... 
 
daffodil... Congratulations on having a girl!! Daughters are wonderful, my daughter is 18 this year, and a very good friend too :)  
gomo12... Its a shame it was negative, your time will come, all the best for next month! (having a partner not flying off will help hehe)  
sunshiner28... Hello, I think its just try and see what happens, good luck!  
izzysmummy.... hello too :) I am going to use the strips this month, just to see when i do ovulate, it will be nice to know i think??? Plus i brought them from ebay, soooo cheap! so nothing to lose really! Just want to see if it falls the same time as my ovulation app says, With my parnter working away at a moments notice, it gives an idea of when we've missed the right timing!! All the best  
HopeAt40... I am glad your migraines are better, All the best too :)  
mamakatie... I would TTC now, My Doc said best to wait for one cycle before trying. 
GGOD LUCK TOO EVERYONE ELSE too ... babydust too all xxx

Hi Ladies! Well i got my mirena taken out one week ago! And i feel FANTASTIC! :grin There were many symptoms i was having that pushed me too far so after having it in for 6 months i went back to my OBGYN and said TAKE IT OUT!!! We were planning on TTC #2 mid year anyways so we thought why not just do it now and get my body back into some sort of pattern. My question is ...how long did it take for your cycle to return to a regular pattern? My OBGYN said to expect a period in the next 3-4 weeks. I have heaps of OPKs waiting and ready to use so i can start tracking some sort of ovulation so my cycle is easier to predict. Did you find this helped at all? Thanks for all your time :) It's so nice to talk to other women who are in the same boat as me!

@ babycakes I understand you searching for that reason. I came on this forum for the same thing. It was my first time trying to get pregnant after the IUD. I would say that about half get pregnant fast and about half have a little wait. Then there are a few that have a much longer wait. It's just my opinion but I think that those that had the copper IUD get pregnant fast than those that had the Mirena because of the hormones.  
 
@babygirlhopeful I am having *drumroll* a GIRL. I wanted a boy so that my son wouldn't be by himself but oh well a healthy baby is the best. I will be having a 3D ultrasound for final confirmation.

Hi All, 
It's lovely to hear great news from those who have got the positive test result :grin  
 
Spatzi - I'm still going to wait 2 more cycles until I ttc but it is sooooooooo tempting to just want to go for it now!!! 
 
mamakatie - If I was you, I would love to ttc straight away :grin  
The reason I'm giving it a few months to ttc is because I had to wean myself off my migraine medication as it would be dangerous to get pregnant while taking it. So far, I have completely come off the mediaction - and no migraines!!! So I think it was my Mirena that was causing them!!  
 
gomo12 - if you do a test at least you will know - and it might be FANTASTIC news :grin  
 
Good luck to all who are trying and keep well those who have conceived xxx

I will keep everyone in my prayers. I still haven't had the strength to do a pregnancy test Im too scared i might be dissappointed.

Hi girls how is everyone, Gomo12 if your late you should test, fingers crossed for you, babycakes good luck for you too. Well i should be ovulating any day now i didnt get my smile today so i expect it will be tomo or sat, its really strange because i have been so desperate to get pregnant since removal in oct, but all of a sudden i feel so chilled about the whole thing, its as though having all the bfn and feeling let down every month its made me realise how lucky i am having the 4 kiddies i have already, so if it happens it happens if it doesnt i dont mind, im thankful for the ones i have :)

You had your coil taken out just before me then, I do hope you have fallen pregnant so quick!!! I guess the only way to tell is a test.... I have been feeling a little sick the past 2 days, really sore breasts and no period yet! (due tomorrow) but sometimes a day or two early. I do think my symtoms are just my mind playing tricks, or bug! and a rush of hormones, as it's the first month without my coil! I am hoping to be wrong, but i guess it is more likely just my body adjusting. If i have not had a period by monday, i will test then...Will keep you posted! 
If you are now late, i would test now ...Good Luck!! keeping my fingers crossed x :)

Hi all and congradulations to all who had positive feedbacks. As for me I am a bit puzzled as to wheather I am really preg or its just my mind thinking that I am hence my body is reacting to that. I am too afraid to buy home pregnancy test cos maybe I might find out I am not after all. Please help with any words of encouragement I could really use some :sigh

Hi daffodil 
Congratulations on your 4th pregnancy!! I fell first month with my other 2, but it was 18 and 5 years ago, so i am alittle more concerned this time as i am older.... Plus it is the first time after using a coil, I had always been on the pill before, Had to come off it due to sever migraines, I only had the coil fitted for about 7 months. So i was googling to see if there was any delay in falling pregnant after the coil, when i found this site.  
I fully understand everyone is different, I was just wondering about the percentages etc..... It is nice to read other peoples stories, I am hoping i will fall as quick as you, but if i am like some others on here that take a little longer, I am sure we will all be happy one day :) x x ¢¾ x x

Congrats everyone that has found success. Every woman's' body is different. What happened to some on this forum will not happen to others. Some have become pregnant fast and some are still waiting. Some had regular periods after their IUD was removed and some are still waiting for periods. Some never had a period while they had the IUD and some did. Please realize it is not for you to absolutely guide your menstrual by our stories. Yours may be very different. With that said, if anybody is wondering. I had the paragard (copper) IUD for 4 1/2. I had periods consistently the whole time. They may have shifted a day for two but that's it. I removed the IUD on Sep 10th and my period was right before I removed it. I had another period that started Oct 8th. There was only a few days different on the start the month before. I then found out I was pregnant on Nov 12th. I probably conceived around Oct 23rd. It didn't take long for me probably because I am fertile myrtle and I have charted my cycle for over a year on a calendar tailored just for me. I am now 19 1/2 weeks pregnant with my fourth child. (5th pregnancy, a blighted ovum after my 2nd child) That's my story but yours may be very different. Don't be discouraged and don't get your hopes too high. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY and a good obgyn.

Thanks for the Lovely welcome :) It's so nice of you all..... 
 
Can i just ask if you had regular periods on the coil? As i no some people stop, Mine have been regular, about 26-28 day cycle while I had my coil fitted, it seems strange why it may now stop when its taken out? .... I had light spotting for 2 days after it was taken out and I am due on this friday. I would of been excited if i don't get my period friday before finding this forum, Now it will be more likely a delay from having the removal of the coil.... I will keep you posted. 
 
babynumber5 All the very best... your cycles seemed to kick in quick, so i am sure it'll happen very soon. 
 
Good Luck everyone xx

Hi babycakes - welcome to the forum :)  
It took me 44 days to start my first proper cycle after having my Mirena removed. 
I'm now hoping my next cycle will be 'normal' but have decided to give my body time to sort itself out so we are going to wait until April to start TTC. 
 
Congrats to summerbaby :grin
 
Good luck to all who are TTC - our time will come xxx

Hi Everyone, I have been reading up on different forums (keep googling) But i felt i had to join this site as you all seem lovely!! :) so i am new here... it is my first ever forum chat!! 
 
I am 37 i have 2 children, my daughter is 17 and my son is 4... I really want a 3rd baby!! I had my coil, i think marina, removed wed 9th feb, my period is due this friday 25th feb, going on a 28 day cycle, but I have no idea really how long my cycles are, I would say they are often a little shorter. Before I had the coil, i was on the pill, so that made me regular! I do feel at the age of 37 i am running out of time, so reading all your comments that my periods may take months to return, is really worrying me! :roll  
My partner and myself, are trying to conceive as soon as possible!! I have a 1000 questions, and just feel there is not one answer for all.... I wish you all the very very best and i hope your baby dreams come true very soon xx

Gomo12, 
 
Mostly, women who uses copper IUD is more likely to get pregnant than women who used Mirena IUD...that's because it's non-hormonal, but it still depends on women's body! Each of our body is different! Some ladies here gotten pregnant right away after the removal of Mirena IUD. Some took many months before conceiving! If you had unprotected sex before the removal of your IUD, it's possible that you can be pregnant since the sperm can live in our body for few days. Do you have some symptoms??? Or just curious how long it would take to get pregnant? If it's the last one, then, nobody can give you an exact timetable how long it will take! Goodluck! :)

No, they found the strings, she just completely ripped them out trying to take it out. I know that's where the pain is coming from because when she pulled, ohhhmyyygoddd, did it hurt. And I have a HIGH pain tolerance. Took all of me not to kick her in the face haha but, Its a small family health clinic and she didn't feel comfortable trying to just pull it out without the strings since she have the inner ultrasound machine. so either I wait till she gets an inner ultrasound machine or go see the other dr who's more experienced next tuesday. So, I'd rather wait for the more experienced dr, especially if its stuck. All I want is this thing out of me, so I can start having babies :(

Mamakatie, 
 
I suggest not to wait few days more...why wait? When you have a lot of pain already?You said that the strings of your IUD can't be found, make the ultrasound ASAP to make sure that the IUD was not embedded into your uterus...goodluck! 
 
P.S. Normally, an OB-Gyne clinic has their own ultra-sound device. If they can't find the string of an IUD, they will make an ultra-sound immediately to locate it! Why find other Dr for this and wait few days later? Just curious, sorry! :?

But, I have to wait until the 22nd to get it done! . :( I'm still having pains and still no period, almost 3 months late now. . I'm so worried. :(

Hey Everyone, 
Im New Here & needed some advice. 
I first had my copper iud insterted in feb 2009, after my daughters birth. I had to have it replaced in Sept 2010 because it was to low or something. My bf an I decided we wanted to try for baby #2, so i had my copper iud removed on Feb 3rd. Not even 2 wks later and im having alot of symptoms like non-stop headaches, a lil nausea, stomach pain, no energy whatsoever....is it too early to have gotten prego and start having all these symptoms? I thought maybe its my body readjusting after having the iud removed but since its non-hormonal does it need to really readjust? Helpppp! lol Im getting anxious and my period isnt due for another 10 days which seems like a lifetime. 
 
Thanks!

We are nearly the same, I have a beautiful daughter who's 11 (turning 12 years in 2 months) and she's desperate to have a baby brother or sister. I am 37 now and have had the IUD for 10 yrs, had it removed exactly one and a half years and still, no baby! :? You are right, time is running for both of us on this age! I wished that you will not wait long to conceive like me...I've been waiting for 1 1/2 yr now! Still no luck...maybe I should call myself also "HopeAt37" :grin Congrats to all the ladies who conceived...wish us luck too!

Hi All. I'm new to posting, but have been reading your comments for a while - and have had my fingers crossed for everyone :) I had the Mirena for 8 years to help my endometriosis - and I never had a period in all that time which was wonderful!!! I have a beautiful 8 year old daughter who is desperate for a baby brother or sister. I'm 40 this year and time is running out - so I had my Mirena removed December 17th 2010. I have just finished my first 'real' period and have managed to wean myself off all my migraine medication... (looking back, I think my Mirena may have been the cause of the Migraines as I feel great now). Hubby & I are going to start 'trying' in April so that it gives my body a chance to get into full working order. Best wishes and baby dust to all xx

HavingAHardTime Oh yeah by the way mine was called a blighted ovum and I had several ultrasounds to make sure that it really was. Of course by 4 months you would definitely hear a heartbeat. You probably are early in your pregnancy than me so make sure for your satisfaction that you get at least another ultrasound done.

HavingAHardTime It will be okay. I had the exact same thing happen to me. I actually went until my fourth month. They did a transvaginal ultrasound and there was an empty sac. There was never a baby that developed. I felt better in my mind because I felt like I didn't lose a baby but just the sac. They had me wait for about two weeks to see if I would miscarry on my own. (Not going to happen since my body holds onto pregnancies as long it can) I then went in for a D&C. It turned out well. I have a 4 year old daughter after that and I am current 4 1/2 months pregnant. So you will be okay afterwards as well. Let us know how it turns out. If you feel uncomfortable have them do another ultrasound and then go forward.

I want everyone to know that we are ALL different!! I first came here at the beginning of DEC 2010 to find guidance since i wanted to have another baby and had the paragard for about 4 yrs. I had a plan but after reading all these stories I freaked out :eek and went to the Dr. to have it removed. I had sexual intercourse everyday and was disappointed to have my period at the end of the 28 days. The second month after missing my period the first day I ran to the pharmacy and have had 3 POSITIVE pregnancy test!!!! Super Excited .. I wanted to share my experience since I made my choices based on what I read here and other pages, I want you ladies to know .. WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT!!! GOOD LUCK

Then went back this morning which was a week later and did another ultra sound, he told me before he started it, he was 99% sure this pregnancy was not going to show anything. He stopped dead in his tracks when, behold! My baby was there with a strong heart beat! :) Thank God!

Ok so I'm new to this site, but I'm having a lot of trouble. I thought maybe someone had some advice or has been where I'm at before. Ok I'm 21 years old and have a beauitful 5 yr old daughter. I had the mirena for almost the whole five yrs. I got it taken outnov 1st of 2010. I found out last week that I am pregnant. So excited. Well I went for an ultrasound to confirm how far I am and I just had an empty gestational sac. My dr said that I had a misscarrage. There is no for sure reason why this happened. I am so hurt and don't kno what to take as my next step. Any suggestions.

Quick question... Anyone have to stop taking an antidepressant before trying? My Dr said it won't be out of my system completely until April. Just got my IUD out, so it will give my period some time to regulate. I'm nervous about being w/o any meds. Any thoughts or supportive comments?

hi mamakatie, sorry to hear your still having a bad time, i see you still have you iud in place, i must say my periods done weird and wonderful things when i had mine in place, some months i would have a period from hell and other times i could go 6 months without one, i also had crampy feelings on my side and lower front all the time i had it in place, so i thing maybe your problems are all to do with the iud, i think the quicker its removed the better for you really, i had mine removed oct 13th and my periods have just gotten back to a 28 day cycle, im due on on the 11th so praying it stays away, good luck hun i hope all works out for you xxxx :)

Hey ladies. . So, here's my update.. I went to the dr yesterday. They gave me a urine test and it came back negative, I told them I've already taken a hpt and told them all of my symptoms then requested a blood test. They said since their urine test said negative they won't give me a blood test. I asked them if I'm not pregnant why haven't I gotten my period, I mean its due AGAIN on the 4th of feb. So that will be 2 months of not having it if it doesn't come. They said my iud could possibly be causing that so they want me to get it out. (They couldn't explain WHY they said I'd have to ask my gyno) Since my gyno is still on vacation I asked to see another one and that gyno isn't available until the 25th. So, I don't know what to do now, just play the waiting game I guess, and hope I can keep some food down today.

I have my appointment tomorrow morning, and I'm worried already. Doesn't help that me and my hubby got into it today. He doesn't quite understand the ectopic thing and is upset about the options. Hopefully everything goes ok, I'm scared a bit. And with him being upset, feelin kinda alone. Sorry, had to vent for a second. I hope that everything turns out the way it should, guess that's all I can ask for..

Thanks ladies, so, I should be seen in the dr's office within the next 2days. (Earliest they could see me is tomorrow or tuesday.) So, hopefully everything goes well, I've been throwing up everything today and some pain in my breasts, which is strange. I had a reduction last year and they've still been pretty numb, so the pains are weird. The last time I was pregnant I had the most terrrrible breast pains. Ugh. Hopefully the pain in my side isn't ectopic symptoms. My husbands like maybe you're just pregnant and everything will work out.. (He's hoping for the extreme best god bless his sweet heart) thank you all so much for the support, u ladies are awesome. :) babydust to all :grin

mamakatie I really hope that you feel better. I had a lost pregnancy at 4 months. I have had two successful pregnancies after. My four year old daughter before iud and the pregnancy that I am in now after IUD (I am considered at no risk and have had several ultrasounds to prove it). I am sure you are okay. If you feel pains in your side or stomach then be aware of that because it may mean ectopic. I hope that you get some answers soon.

hi mamakatie, im not sure what to suggest really, but i would definitely call the doctor and demand an appointment because you are concerned about a few things, take another test and see what it says, if its neg it might just be stress making your period late, if your worried about ectopic definitely call your dr, i hope it all works out ok for you, this site is brilliant because you can let it all out knowing we are all going through the same thing, take care hun and keep us updated xxx babydust to all xx 
 
Babygirlhopeful: how you doing hun i hope your feeling ok, i have been dtd all weekend, praying for my bfp hehe xx

Good luck ladies. Hope everyone has had a great weekend! *babydust* to all !!  
Spoke with my hubby last night and were going to get some more tests today, anyone have any brand that they suggest. Also, I heard that if it is ectopic, that it could give false negatives, the only test I took was one I had in my closet from a few months back, the result was barely there and it said neg. I had to turn it to read it cuz u couldn't see it. God, I wish my dr hadn't moved my appt back for the removal.. He may have needed a vacation, but I want answers!! I've been so emotional lately, (I burst into tears b/c my husband said for me to rest instead of making cupcakes, I was like, I want to make cupcakes! Lol) I'm just worried b/c before I had the iud put in, I lost a baby at 4 and a half months into the preg.. I'm so nervous that I won't be able to conceive, :( ok, I'm emotional again, haha  
Thank u ladies for all the advice, it makes me happy to know I can speak freely here. :)  
Take care!! :)

@ BABYGIRLHOPEFUL... Wow! Congrats, your waiting game is over! And to all the ladies here who got their positive ones! 
 
@MAMAKATIE...getting pregnant while the IUD is in, has a very very low chance...but still possible but very rare to happen! But if it happens, normally it ends up in miscarriages. Go to your OB and have it check. 
 
Wish us luck too...still no positive :sigh :cry

CONGRATS!!! Babygirlhopeful @mamakatie I would take one more test in like two days. Make sure they give you a test when you go to the doctor. If you absolutely want to be sure then see if your doctor will give you a blood test a few days before you get your IUD removed just to be on the safe side. @Babynumber5 Keep trying. Your positive will show up soon.

Well, still haven't gotten my period. I took a test and it faintly said not pregnant. But it was barely there. . I wonder if I should take another one. Is it possible to get preg with the iud still in, I haven't gotten it out yet. My appt is in a week and I'm kinda worried.

Hello All! I just found this site and am encouraged by your comments. I want to introduce myself and ask for any advice... I am 29 years old (turning 30 on Feb. 11!) and my husband told me on Friday night that he thinks I should have my IUD removed (I was delighted). I have no kids, and there was some controversy as to whether or not they should have inserted the Mirena. I've had it for a few years and have an appointment to have it removed this Thursday (Jan. 27). I'm excited and nervous at the same time! We plan to get started right away and I would love some pointers! Maybe things you would have liked to have known when you were in my position - the good, the bad, the ugly!  
  
My doctors have already warned me that I could have a very painful and complicated pregnancy because of a rare disorder I've had since birth - Klippel Trenaunay Syndrome (you can find some info on google). The only reason I share this is because I am used to hearing negative medical news. But I always love hearing the positive.   
  
My mother says that the females in our family our "very fertile" so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!  
  
Thanks for listening/reading,  
KWS

Hi all, second post on here! I am now 3 days late for my period and i have taken a test and it was negative so i am now thinking that having the coil removed could have effected my periods, did anyone else have any problems after having the coil removed. I don't want to get my hopes up and think that it could work the quickly! I have everything crossed in the hope that i am!! Please advise if having the coil removed effected anyone? xx :grin

Hey ladies, its been a while. CONGRATS to those who have been blessed by a positive result!! Sendin all my good vibes to all those who are still hoping. :)  
SO, I'm freakin out a bit. Me and my new hubby really want to start having our little ones. Now, I'm 3 and a half weeks late and my appointment for my iud removal is in 2 weeks(they moved it back). I've been feeling really sick, boobs are sore and smells are makin me nauseated. My friend said its impossible to get preg on the iud, but I'm not sure. Should I take a test or just keep waiting?

Hello grils hope all u doing great. well update from last time i was on. I was supposed to get my period on Jan. 1st but til now no period.

I have been a silent follower of this site since deciding to get my IUD removed. Well I got my IUD removed on Nov. 15th 2010. That was the first day of my period, which lasted for five days. Shortly thereafter we started to BD every other night. that was a bust AF hasn't shown up since removal of the IUD. I find it so weird that AF is thrown off b/c its not like the cooper was regulating my cycle in any way. Took several HPT all negative. Don't know what to do. Went to the gyn, she prescribed Provera still waiting on AF. No sign that AF is near just sore boobs for two weeks. I am so confused and upset at the same time. BTW diagnosed with PCOS struggled with conceiving my 1st child but it was accomplished!! AF pretty regular since the birth of my son until now. has anyone ever experienced this? CONGRATS TO ALL WITH POSITIVE HPTs!!!!!!!

Hi, i have been looking at all these websites all morning, i need some advise, i had my coil (IUD) removed last Friday, me and my partner started that day trying to get pregnant. I am now starting to feel different, pains in my lower stomach, sick, high tempreture, headaches. I am wondering if it can work that quick? 
We are very fertile if thats the word because we have been pregnant before but i developed pre eclampsia and HELP and she didn't make it. That was four years ago and now we are just ready to try again. We both want this more than anything and i am hoping that these symptoms are not just in my head? Maybe i want it to much and i am kidding myself into thinking that they are there, they feel real? Has anyone got pregnant stright away before. The day it was taken out was the first day of my ovulation so it was good timing :)

Lacegirl, 
You are not alone! I'm not new on this site...back again though I am reading all the posts here in silence! You were only trying for a month...I've been trying for nearly 1 1/2 year now since my removal of Mirena IUD. I've had it for 10 yrs (2x5yrs) and no baby yet! Like you, no problem with my first child, a daughter who's 11 now! I guess, I am the most one here who got the IUD the longest! Will go to OB-Gyne next few weeks to see what's wrong but I hope the IUD doesn't damaged my fertility! Oh boy...,can't imagine! 
 
Congrats Tashmjohns and to all who got positives!!! Wish us luck and baby dust to all. Not giving up my hopes, though! :sigh

It's good to know that I'm not the only one having a hard time gettting pregnant after my IUD removal. I had it removed almost a year ago. I had the copper T in for 4 years and felt it was time to go. We had no intention on getting pregnant so we were using condoms. I have two girls a 8 and 5 year old. I really want a boy to make our family complete. We have only been trying to get pregnant for a month. But I was shocked with a period instead. I had gotten pregnant right away with my other children that I thought this would be a peice of cake. Little did I know I think the IUD might have cause some scaring. I am going to the OBGYN next monght and have her make sure everythings fine down there :) :sigh

All the luck Babynumber5! Mizz Marshall, I have been seeing that alot, not only on this site but others as well. I would just test when it gets close and/or when u miss. If no period then and still neg. test, go to the doc and they will do a blood test. :) As for me... I am still waiting to see if I will have a cycle this month. If so, it will come around the 20th I am guessing. Had mine removed Dec. 2nd. I am sure the *junk* is still in my body, but who knows... it's possible! :p Just trying to keep postive and not get my hopes up... but gosh that's hard! LOL. BIGGEST CONGRATS tashamjohns!! That makes my hopes better :)

Hello all I new to this but have been reading all the posts. I had my marina out on the 10/28 and had bleeding two days later(30-31). We are trying to get pregnant and slept together and I started to bleed again on the 4th-6th of November with really bad cramps. I'm not sure if that is normal since my IUD was recently removed. I was feeling really bad like I was pregnant but got a period again in Dec. This month has been bad I have been feeling sick but Im going to wait to see if my January one comes on the 12th. I took 3 hpt and they all were neg :( I hope I dont get it i want to have another baby soon. I have a friend who had her iud removed around the same time as me and is now 9 wks preg. Is there anyway I can be and the home test just keep coming back neg?

Thanks Avilar. Don't be scare and test anyways. But I was feeling the same way you was feeling and I keep waiting because I didn't want to be disappointed. But all and all everything happens for a reason and my prayers was answered.

HAPPY NEW YEAR'S LADIES! Hope all you guys had a great new years.. well here is an update.. All last we I had been getting dizzy and nausea, Wednesday I started to catch hot flash and then I really came down with something. I missed work on Thursday because I was so sick like I was coming down with the Flu. Went to work Friday for about 4 hours, came home and me and my hubby went to friends for the new years. Got back home today and started to feel very dizzy so... i took a test and guess what???? I am pregnant!!!! I am in shock and will test again on Tuesday to make sure before I make a doctor's appointment. I removed my iud on Oct. 19 and I had it for 4 years 4 mos before removing it. So babynumber5 don't give up hope yet because it's been 3 months for me. Thank you guys for all the support and I will keep you informed in the coming days! Sorry for the longgggg drawn out story :grin

Hi All, I have been a silent follower for a couple months now and I just wanted to share my story. I am 25 going to be 26 in January. I had a Marina IUD for about 2 ½ years. I recently got married and we are so excited to start a family. I got my IUD out Dec 3, 2010 and I had spotting for 3 days very light about 2 days after it was removed. I never really had a period when I had the IUD in but I remember that before I got the IUD I had very heavy periods. Well I am just so anxious and excited to get pregnant so I used ovulation tests to see when I was ovulating and I tested + for ovulation on 12/25/10. So we have started the 2 week wait and O-Boy it is tough. I have so much respect for all of you and I can honestly say that this forum has kept me sane lol. Good luck to you all and lets all think positive :-)

Hello ladies, its been awhile since Ive been on here....so to give an update I am still not prego :sigh I had my Mirena IUD removed May 2009 and my periods are still crazy...most of the time its very little (spotting) and only lasts for a couple days. I also had a cyst on one of my ovaries that had to be surgically removed. My husband deployed 6 months ago and when he came home for R&R we were hoping to get prego but that didnt happen...hopefully when he redeploys in June we are able to get prego or at least find out why its not happening.

HEY LADIES! I am still waiting. removed IUD on oct. 19, got period actually started oct.17 but wasn't heavy at all until I removed it. Period came on Nov.12 (26 day cycle). Period returned on Dec 7 (25 day cycle) and ended on Dec. 11th. Soo my next period should either come on Dec. 30 or Dec.31( I hope neither. I am so emotional right now because I really want to be pregnant. :roll If my period doesn't come on I am going to wait until 1/2 to test because from my fertility chart, it's saying I should have a positive test on that day. What a great way to start the New Year off. Keep me in you guys prayers and thanks for all your support. I am feeling like the IUD was the worst thing I could have done now :upset ...Babydust all around. Peace and Blessings

@babynumber5 I use an app on my iPhone that charts every cycle and gives me and average. I think they have it online also. It should be an ovulation calendar. It takes a while though and won't work very well unless you at least have six months of data. The more the better. It worked for me. If not that I would get ovulation tests or do like babygirlhopeful said and try every other day and just wait as patiently as you can. I think that working yourself up makes it worst. When I relaxed it happened.  
 
@babygirlhopeful I used Answers because that was all that they had at a reasonable price during my spur of the moment run. It had to in mine. It tested the same as my strips that the doctors used. I had to lines and the pregnancy line was lighter. I would say that it works just as well as any of the other ones. As far as how early I don't know since I tested positive the day that AF was due.

IT was a 2 to 3 day bleed but light...this is why im trying not to be so obsessive with it cause i dont want to be disappointed and figured when its suppose to happen it will cause i ovulated on the 14th i had sex the 8,9,10,11,13,14 so if it happens then it happens right lol!!! so today is 5 DPO and i got sore boobies on day 3po so now im thinking may just be period coming cause they were sore earlier too last month but wishing that their sore from hormones of prenancy not hormones from the WITCH LMAO!! ;)

Hey girls!! I just got my IUD removed today!! I'm over the moon to try again, but the nurse has me so scared about it taking 2-3 years and possible miscarriages the first 3 or 4 times I could get pregnant. I guess I will just wait and see what happens, but I'm excited to see how quickly some of you got pregnant after your removals. For now, we will have fun trying I suppose, but I can't wait to get a BFP!!!

Hello everyone, 
There is so much going on that I can't keep up with who had what. Congrats to the person that conceived. Good luck to those that are still trying and hoping for December to be their month. I have been absent for a bit due to extreme fatigue, morning sickness, final exams, and graduation. For the person that asked which IUD is easier to get pregnant after. I would say the paragard is easier but that is just my opinion. I say that because their is no hormones that your body has to get rid of. Everybody's body is different so there is always different circumstances. I got pregnant the second month after removal even with having a hysteroscopy done to remove it (my strings couldn't be found). I would get it removed the month before the wedding and hope for the best. My update is I went on the 9th and my doctor did a brief exam and all is well so far. I go back on the 23rd to find out all remaining details. I am really thankful to you guys for getting through my tough times. I am still rooting you all on to have your positive tests.

Yayy!! I made the appointment. I'm getting it taken out on the 10th of january! About a week after my wedding.. So, hopefully all goes well. ? the lady on the phone said that sometimes your body needs to "reboot" itself before your cycle becomes regular again. But, all the women in my family are fertile mertyls so hopefully *fingers-crossed* I'm the same way! Hope everyones doing great!!

Thanks for your help Les! :) so, how long have you had yours out if I might ask? I'm gettin a little freaked out that now I'm not going to be able to get pregnant Since I've had it in for so long. 5yrs out of the 12 year max..My fiance really wants a little one asap, everytime my monthly "friend" is a little late, he's like high five! They got thru! So, I'm hoping we can concieve quickly. I'm actually calling to make an appt in the next few days..

Congrats christabelle! Hello ladies!! 
I'm katie! I'm new to this site and its such a blessing to have found it!(I love the *babydust* thing! Haha totally cute! I'm 27, I currently have a IUD (paragard). I've had it in for almost 5 years and I'm getting married in 4 weeks. Me and my fiance want to start trying to have our first baby as soon as we get married and from what I'm reading it takes a while After u get the IUD taken out. I'm wondering if anyone can throw me some info... Is the conception waiting period longer with mirena/paragard?

Update: still no period. It's been 45 days since I bled for a few days after my removal on the 23rd of October. All pregnancy tests have been negitive. I'm thinking that that wasn't my period 2 days after removal and that I still just have to wait? I need my period or I can't get preggo:( can anyone else relate?

UPDATE! I got my IUD removed Oct 22. Got my period Nov 10th and was supposed to get my period on Dec 8th but didn't. Took a pregnancy yesterday and it came back inconclusive. 2 lines but one was really light. So I took another one today and it was definitely positive!! As clear as day! It is very possible to get pregnant immediately after IUD removal! I am so happy and I wish all you luck! Baby dust all around ♥

Good morning guys! This is the second month I gotten my period since i removed my IUD. Last month my cycle was at 26 days so I have been making sure me and my love been covering all the spaces! lol But this month my period was late and I was so happy because I thought that I might be pregnant, but I am not because I got it late last night :(. This is so depressing because I thought it took this time. Can anyone give me any suggestions on what I can do? Never used the ovulation kits because I was sure if they worked. I need a shoulder to cry on right now! :sigh

Hey Ladies! I'm new here and just have some questions if anyone could help me out. My fiance and I would like to try conceiving in 4 months, so in March 2010. I have had the Mirena in almost 4 years now, and i do not get my period with it. I do not have any children. Should I have the Mirena removed now so my period is regulated by the time we want to start trying? Any suggestions would be great! Thanks :)

Hi! Just wanted to ask if anyone else had a period after removal of their IUD and then was late(r) then normal to get their period? I got my IUD taken out 10/23 (they had to go in with a camera and numb my uterus because the strings were too short) Got my period (or maybe just bled) starting the 25-28. and still haven't got another period...all tests say negative. I have heard of people not getting a period for a while or getting it 2 days after removal and then not having a period because they are preggo...but I seem to be in neither group. Any one else have this issue? Thanks!!

Well, still no luck after 15 months of Mirena IUD removal (had it 10yrs 2x5 yrs)...guess I am the longest one here who had it for such a long time! Hope that the hormones are all flushed out from my body and uterus lining back to normal. Happy to read all the ladies who conceived! Congrats! Still hoping for my 2nd baby...wish me luck too!

Yeah, you're right...if it's meant to be, it will happen! Goodluck to you too!

Don't worry LMM2010 quite a few women on this site get pregnant within a couple months. A woman's chances of getting pregnant within 12 months of having Mirena removed are approximately 80%. Just think Positive. :grin

Hey everyone!! New to the group!! I am getting my Mirena out on the 16th of December and I'm so excited!! This will be baby #4 for us if it happens. I'm a little worried it's not going to happen, I have heard so many women say it's taken 5months to 2 years to get pregnant after the removal!! Any insight would be appreciated!! I want another baby so bad, before my husband starts Med School and any tips or suggestions on how to speed up the process would be awesome!! :)

update................. ok so i had my iud removed nov 12 2010 and started bleeding on nov.14. it was a very heavy bleeding. i knw its tmi but i was changing a least a soaked pad every hour hour in a half. it was horrible so i finally went to go see my doctor on friday and states it is normal for the heavy bleeding due to my hormones going crazy. so i got perscribe birth control pills to help the bleeding. it has now stopped but i have to take the pills til the end. so i wont be ttc any time soon :cry :cry :cry ...so i will keep all you updated

I am 6 weeks and 4 days and I am so freaking out. This is like my 5th pregnancy(I had one blighted ovum) so you would think I wouldn't but I am. I have 16 days until I go to the doctor. Thought I would tell you guys a story that happened to me. This weekend I went to a close friends house (who didn't know I was preggers). Their kids were sick and the husband(didn't know until I got there). The next day my husband, my kids, and I woke up with scratchy throats. We felt sick all day. My husband was the worse with a fever working outside in the cold. I escaped the fever but had to monitor my temp every 30 minutes and drink tons of water(since the first trimester is the worst time to have a fever). My husband slept on the coach so I wouldn't get sick although he felt terrible. We are all better now but I don't want to go anywhere. I have a wedding to go to this weekend but I don't want to go because I'm afraid of getting sick. I am really considering wearing a medical mask. Sad but true. What do you think?

Hi everyone. 
I am 25 years old and I had the Mirena IUD for 3 years. I had it removed on the 17th of October. I decided to wait a week before ttc (11-24). But the last two days I have been spotting. I heard you were suppose to wait till you have a monthly so i assume thats my bodies green light. Hoping for a summer girl. 8)

***UPDATE*** 
 
So I had my IUD taken out on Oct 22. Had light bleeding for a day and a half. Got a regular period shortly after. Have been having sex like non stop since lol and last night my stomach started to feel weird. I know my body pretty well and I remember feeling like this when I was pregnant with my son. I think it might still be too early for a HPT but im gonna take one anyhow. Prolly tomorrow morning. Wish me luck!!

So I had my IUD removed on October 18th 2010 and have yet to have a period. My husband and I are trying for baby number 2. I have heard it both ways that you can get pregnant right after IUD removal and you have to have a period first... Do I have to have a period first? I have very mild pregnancy symptoms but nothing super drastic. Just mildly tender breast with some veins showing, this may be TMI but I have more than usual discharge, some nauseia (SP). Im just wondering if its possible to get pregnant with out having a period right after an IUD removal?

Hi everyone. I'm 29, and I had the paragard iud removed in March (had it in for 2 1/2 years). My cycle has been regular ever since (about 31 days)...it basically just went back to how it was before the iud. We've tried EVERYTHING...mucinex, laying still for 30 mins after, using a pillow to tilt the pelvis, etc. I've taken ovulation tests, and it says I'm ovulating. But, still nothing after 9 months of trying. We're not telling any of our friends or family that we're trying, so there's no one to really vent my frustrations to. It's hard because we're the last of our friends to have kids, and all of our friends got pregnant really quickly. Does anyone have any suggestions?

*Update* I took another test on Sunday and received the same positive results. I can't wait until my appointment. The 9th is so far away.  
 
Thank you tryin4#3. I will definitely keep everyone posted. Your body is probably trying to regulate after having the IUD in. My body went through all kinds of pains leading up to the ovulation period the month after having my IUD removed. (Normally I have no pain at any time.) The next month my cycle was two days heavy and two very light days and I still became pregnant. I think that it takes time for your uterus to build its lining back up. I wish you the best for December. 
 
@babygirlhopeful Congrats on the positive ovulation test. I hope that it works out for you.  
 
@ttc#3 My test was similar to yours with the lighter positive line. I think that it has to do with testing sooner and the amount of hcg that you have. I would say wait a week(if you can) and test again. From your dates it looks like you tested early.  
 
I wish everyone the best in baby making :)

so, i went to the store and bought a different brand test, and got the same faint line...this one showed up even faster than it did on the other tests (this one was like 5 seconds after the urine went through. here is a link to a photo of the test. let me know what you think.

ok, so i couldn't wait and i took the other test today...it the same as yesterdays :? ....still an extremely faint line (popping up within the 2-3 min. window). shouldn't it have been darker? does that mean it's just a weird evap line? i think i'm going to try another brand of test and see if i get the same results. will update again soon.

Hi everyone i just wanna give you guys an update on my situation. So as i sai before i had my iud removed the end of august and started ttc right away. Since then i have had a period every month without fail.One thng i have noticed is that i cant really depend on when its comin yet. Another thing that i did notice is that each time i have had a period it has gotten shorter. First priod was 9 days second one was 5 days and theis one was only 3 days and very light. Meanwhile i have taken 2 more hpt and they have both been -. So im am looking forward to this month and december to be the lucky for me. Wish me luck ladies. btw congrats dafodill make sure u keep us all posted

Thanks! No I didn't use the ovulation kit. I never got a chance to order it because I got sick, my husband got sick, and my kids got sick. I didn't think that it would happen since we were sick and not very active. I did use an ovulation calendar which can work for me because I am pretty regular. It has all of my cycle information inputed for six months to a year. It gave me a pretty good range to look at.

Oh I forgot that I don't feel pregnant. Other than my sore breasts and a bit of frequent urination, nothing else is happening. Not a bad thing. I don't miss the sickness at all. Just feels strange not to feel like I'm pregnant as crazy as that sounds. Makes me a bit nervous. Oh well I guess I better wait until my appointment.

Hello again everyone  
Just an update for you guys. I had the Paraguard Iud removed on Sept 10th. I had it for 3 1/2 years. It had to be removed by hysteroscopy because the strings were too short and coiled up. I took a test in October that was negative. Then she reared her ugly head. So my breasts have been sore lately. I was supposed to start my period today.(I'm pretty regular) It did not come. I decided to take a test and well... it the positive line popped up! I'm going to take a few more tests just to be sure. I will update you when I have my appointment on the 9th of December.(Prescheduled the day of my IUD removal. I guess my doctor believes in me. He so rocks!) Well I will update you again later. I wish all those still waiting the best.

Hey Ladies, I had my IUD taking out on Nov1 and I already got my period on the 3rd :upset . I had the IUD for about 2 and a half years and my husband and I want to try to have another child. The doctor told me that I can get PG the same night that I had it taking out. :) but I guess I had missed my ovulation day... My period had been very irregular for the past 3 months on the IUD, I Had been getting it 1-2 weeks early . I really want to get pg right away. so, now I am guessing i have to wait at least 14 days in tell i ovulate again. I will keep y'all posted.... :?

so i did start my period yesterday post IUD removal 10-14-10. I guess its for the best so my body can go through a regular cycle then try for our baby girl...but my doctor did give me a sex calendar for those who would like a girl i will share...to have a girl per my ob/gyn...you are suppose to count day 1 when you first start bleeding by day9 you are to douche with vinegar douche no sex day 10, day 11, then you are to have sex days 12,13,14,15,16 and he said by end of the month you can test for a positive test and you guys should have a girl....i actually researched the chinese lunar gender calendar also and i am suppose to concieve a girl also from that too plus my doctor is chinese so im hoping they are both right lol good luck everyone i will keep you updated!!!

I've had my IUD (ParaGard) for a total of about four years. I got mines in Oct 2006. My husband and I have two children (girls), my youngest being four. We decided that we wanted a boy and to try once more. I had my IUD removed August 27, 2010. Once I removed it, I didn't see my cycle again... main reason... is b/c i was pregno again!!! So yes ladies you can get pregnant right after. I took some home test twice and both times it was positive. But then my cycle started like normal with very bad cramps to the point I couldn't walk with out buckling over for about 2-3 days straight. I then went the Dr and tested negative. Turns out I was in the mist of having a miscarriage at almost eight weeks. I was told that my hormone numbers weren't high enough. And not to try again until January of 2011. Well, here it is Nov 2010 and I am missing my cycle again. My husband I are a little worried. This wasn't purposely done, but it wasn't prevented either. So we pray that everything goes well this time IF I am pregnant. But I will keep you ladies posted on what else happens from here. I haven't met/heard anyone with my story. My nurse actually told me that she was trying to get pregnant for the second time for the last 8-10 months, but I am unsure of what IUD she used... vs me, I got pregnant right away (maybe twice) but lost the first one. Pray for us...

I was bleeding non stop for the first 3 months. bleeding has now stopped just regular periods. problems dnt stop there tho, i have been having sharp overian pain and pain and bleeding after intercourse with my husband. We have been having many arguements about the iud removal. he does not want me to have it due to so much bleeding and pain. our sex life is bitter sweet :( sad to say...so im am 26 and have a 6 yr old boy from my first marriage. and he has 3 children from his first marriage 14, 11 and 8...so we have decided to try and get pregnant so im scheduled to have the iud removed on nov. 12 at 8am. im nerviouse about this..... even tho im excited to get it removed and get pregnant im also scared...i also have pcos...polycystic overy syndrom so it makes it harder for me to get pregnant...i so want to get pregnant as i think im ready to be a mom again....there are so many things that run through my head i get excited nervouse scared i just dnt knw.....im so glad i found this site as i see there are many of us in the same situation.....

Hi Ladies, 
I have an update.... so I removed my IUD removed 10/6/10 right after my period. I was ovulating 14-16, ttc on the 16th, only one day due to hectic and different schedules. on the 20th experienced strong cramping. Since then been feeling very tire, and experiencing imsomnia. Took a pregnancy test on 10/ 22 
but got a neg result :cry ...I was shocked to see no period on 10/29, I was tempted to test again but managed to wait till yesterday, after work to test and get my POS !! :) We had hoped for a quick journey but were shocked to see that postive the first month TTC!! Ladies this is a miracle since we only tried on that last day of ovulation, it can happen just have faith, baby dust to all!!

so i dont know if im playing tricks on my own mind or what but im confused and excited all in one lol...I got my IUD removed Oct 14 and i never got any periods while on the mirena. I had lite spotting oct 15,16,17 only when i went to the bathroom. my breast are sore and my husband and i are ttc and having fun but i want to know whats going on inside me and today 11-3-10 am and lightly bleeding again but only small small amounts pretty much only when i go to the bathroom. should i count this as a period or what. prior to getting mirena my periods came the 1st week of every month then had disappeared after insertion but i did get pms signs but now im confused how early is early for a positive result and why havent i gotten a period or should i count this as a period, i just wanta be prego...and wanting something so bad seems like it takes forever lol thanks!! :grin

Also while I am thinking about it, what are some of you ladies' experiences with early testing and blood testing? Have any of you tested negative on hpts and gone in and had your blood tested to find that you are indeed pregnant? From what I've been reading online they can detect pregnancy after 6-12 days from conception...

Love these stories, they are really inspiring!!! Just got my IUD taken out 10/14 at the end of my period, don't know if I will get pregnant right away but I guess we will see won't we? I don't see any reason as to why I shouldn't, it's been about 2 1/2 weeks since it was taken out and we have been at it everyday, whether the ovulation test showed two lines or one. In a couple of days I'm due for my period and I'm excited to see the if I will get it or not...

Hi ladies. I was captivated by the discussions on here and feel obligated to share my story. I believe I may have the record - check this out. I had a copper IUD inserted in 2000 (the 10-year one) and had it removed in January of 2010. THEN HAD ANOTHER ONE PUT IN. So, I'm closing in on 11 years total with an IUD because I never wanted to have a baby. I just turned 35 and I guess my biological clock is ticking because now my husband and I want a baby. The IUD is coming out Dec 6th and we plan to try right away. Now, if I can get pregnant I think I can help shed a lot of doubts and provide a lot of hope for the rest of you :-) wish me luck!!!!

Hey ladies! I'm new to this site. I'm 23 and I have a 3 year old son and he is amazing! But now I want to try for another one (a girl would be great!) Anyway, I've had the paragard (copper IUD) for a little over 2 years and have had many complications. Severe cramps, mood swings, heavy bleeding (especially in the beginning) but it served its purpose and for that I am grateful. I removed my IUD on Oct 22 and bled after for a day or so. I was supposed to come on my period yesterday. Have never missed a period EVER except when I became pregnant with my son. I know the exact day I'm supposed to come on because I get tender breast and minor cramping and I usually come on the next day after. I hear you can get pregnant almost immediately after removal so I'm not sure if that's why no period or maybe it's normal to not have one directly after removal, especially since it was so close by. I'm really excited about possible being pregnant though, but I am also a little scared because what if I am unable to conceive!!?? :eek  
I'll keep you all posted. If I don't come on my period today, I'm going to get a hpt. Wish me luck!

Im new to this site. My husband and i decided we are ready to conceive so on the 13th went to my doctor and got my IUD removed. Got my period today which i thought would took longer to see. But happy to see her cause that means im going to ovulate soon!! Wanted to know if i still had to wait the three cycles like the Dr. said? And does it really take a year to get a positive test after an IUD?

@mommy of 2 boys....It can happen that fast! It can also be your body trying to adapt to being without the iud. It took me 6 preagnancy tests and a long a 8 week wait to get a positive result. Wish you luck and please keep us posted! 
UPDATE.......So I removed My IUD 10/06 and now I'm experiencing discomfort almost pain while intercourse, wondering if anyone has experience this?? I'm considering to wait a month before trying since I've read about miscarriges due to irritated uterus! not sure what is going on? can anyone share if they've experienced this?? :? thanks

Ive taken 4 hpt because my doctor told me to take one a week because of not having a regular period...I dont know what to do. Tender breasts, constant damp feeling "down there" and NO signs at all that my period will be here in two days....normally I have HORRIBLE pms the entire week before my period.....AM I PREGNANT? It's only been a month so I hate to get so excited, but my husband and I just got married in May and I would love to give him one of his "own" (I have two boys from a previous relationship).

Hi Guys .... 
Update ....I conquered my fears and went ahead and removed the ParaGuard on Wed ...I felt so free, happy and super excited. Even though I felt doubtful I understood it was normal to feel this way! Now the "waiting game" starts , hoping and praying that it would be short, but if not it would be worth the wait..... ;)Wish all of you who have decided to go ahead and add a new member to you fam the best of luck and pray that it happens soon!! :)

@QueenBee The paragard iud has no hormones so technically as soon as you take it out to can conceive. Now the question how your will respond to it. We each have different things. I usually can get pregnant if I just say the word. Now I had my IUD removed on Sep 10th and I'm waiting. Some get pregnant right away and some don't. It depends on the body. I would say take it out only when you are sure you are ready to start trying. If you have no other complications and it isn't embedded you should be fine.

I'm new! So glad I found this site and see that i'm not the only one having worries here. I have the Paraguard. I have had it now for about 3 1/2 years. I have 2 children-Single mom. My IUD has worked great for me. It did make my periods a bit heavier and longer though but I didn't want to have any more children until I got married so it's been worth it. I can say I have been blessed with that person now. My worry is once I get it out that I'll be able to get pregnant soon after. He wants a child. I always wonder if I should take it out like a year before we want to concieve and just use condoms? I don't want any problems trying to get pregnant. but I don't want to get pregnant too soon either lol. Ugh, I don't know. Please give me your feedback.

Hi I'm a new addition to the club! 
So happy to have found this...I can vent now !(since we are not sharing our plans on expansion..just yet)We have two beatiful, happy, healthy girls Sarah(9) and Abigail(4). We always kind of knew we wanted 3 maybe 4 children, but dealing with life, a small 2 br apt in NYC, and rising careers we have push it further and further. When I see my girls so big and independent I regret waiting 4 1/2 years. After alot of thingking we have decided that now is the time...(like the Toyota commercial.lol) But have to admit that having an IUD in place since 6 weeks after Abby's birth...thinking about removal (this coming Wed @ 345)has shaken me up. I know I want another child but i'm nervous about making the right decision...one minute I'm super excited, the next I'm doubful...I want to be happy and excited 100% of the time, I feel so guilty about feeling unsure...my husband reassures me by telling me is normal to feel like that when taking an important decision ...but can't help to feel doubtful...is it norm to feel this way or should I wait?? :?

hi all 
well im 28 and already have 3 beautiful healthy children 10, 9 and 7. After the birth of my last child who is now 7 i got the iud fitted to avoid any more babies as i always used to get pregnant very easy, must have taken after my mother who has 9 children lool. After having the coil in for 5 years i decicded to have it removed, which was quite painless only a little cramp whilst it was coming out. i never bleed after but i think that was due to the fact that i just had period before i got it out, well i think thats why lol. 
 
it has now been 2 weeks since i had my coil out and me and my partner have been at it like rabbits lol, my period is due 2morrow 5/10/2010 and i dont want it to come. i have taken 2 test already the ones u dip into your urine but they were both negative to my disapointment. today 4/10/2010 i noticed some light bleeding but only when i wipe, im going to do another test 2morrow so wish me luck, im just hoping that this light bleeding is not my period. im so anxious as i really want another baby and was hoping it would not take me that long to concieve. i have been getting a little cramp today but nothing major like i usaully get when im coming on my period, but this could just be because i no longer have the coil who knows. wish me luck and i will keep u all updated :? :?

Hotspot234, 
It could have some effect when the IUD is embedded into the uterus. Since the the string was not found, it should be removed another way so we don't know if the IUD has slide thru your uterus and damaged it. On this case, getting pregnant is very very low or nearly impossible. Pls. check with your OB-Gyne again if there is any damage. 
 
Mznikkiey, 
Wow! Congrats, your waiting game is over. So lucky! 
Still playing my waiting game after 12 months...still no luck! I am not ovulating (according to the ovulations test) so will go to OB-Gyne to see how it goes......still wishing goodluck to all the women here still trying! :sigh

Wow I am happy to hear of all the success stories, and wish baby dust on all that has not happened yet. I had my copper IUD taken out in February 2010 and now its Sept going on Oct and no luck I got pregnant with my first two children in no time. I don't understand it, my husband and I want our last child. When i was getting it removed it was embedded into my uterus and they had to remove it another way because they could not find the string. I don't know if that could have an effect the OB-GYN said everything is fine, I am so worried and confused anyone have advice. PLEASE HELP.

Hi I am new to this site. I had the Merena for 3 years and decided to remove it to try for a 3rd baby. I had it removed on January 13th of this year. I am 25 years old and my husband and I are very active in the sex area. My periods have been very normal they were about 27 to 28 days apart, but the last few months they have been 32 days apart. Well My last period was August 29th and the my period before that was July 28th. Well now its Sept 22 and I started bleeding and having period symptoms but Im a week and a half early. I dont know what to think. Im getting really worried because I feel that I should have been prego by now. I know that people talk about implantation bleeding but this seems like a real period to me. I think something may be wrong. Please give me some input. :cry

Hello everyone 
I am excited for those that are pregnant and wish all the best for those still trying. I had the Paraguard Iud removed on Sept 10th. I had it for 3 1/2 years. I had it removed to try again. Mine had to be removed by hysteroscopy because the strings were too short and coiled up. I had spotting the day of removal and the day after. I am just awaiting the positive test. I look forward to yours and my positive stories.

Hi everyone. I just wanted to keep record of my journey. I had my IUD removed on the 8th of September 2010. My husband and I are wanting to have a third child. We have two beautiful little girls and we want to become pregnant with a third before our baby is three. She will be three in June, I hope this process goes quickly. Both of my first two pregnancies happened very quickly, even though my doctors told me it would be close to impossible to become pregnant due to a tipped uterus and poly cystic ovarian syndrome. Yet I become pregnant without real attempt with both of them. I hope it goes as quickly and smoothly with this attempt,....and we would like a boy.

Thank you for the congrats. I am glad to have the waiting game over, I only did it for the month I had it taken out, but its hard on you mentally and emotionally. So I think you are a very strong woman to be holding faith still, because I was losing faith after just one try, and getting nothing. I admire you for that. I know Im not that strong.  
 
sineadjane 
I was not told about infections when I had my IUD out, I was only warned about pregnancy. Which really wasnt a warning to me because I wanted to get pregnant. I dont know why sperm would cause an infection, its something natural and should be clean unless the person your with has a dirty penis (not saying thats the case, but using it as an example) , but even then the outside of the penis is dirty, not the sperm. But Im not a doctor so who knows.  
 
kngrove 
I never had spotting with any of my pregnancies, not from my two boys, or this one. But everyones body is different, so good luck! 
 
kmynatt912 
You are very brave. To be so terrified and be so selfless to be willing to give to your husband. We all know the risks go up when you have your babies a little bit older (Not that I think 38 is old, but according to most text books, or atleast the baby books Ive read, it raises the risk a little....), Im not saying that you shouldnt take the risks, because more often than not everything is fine. I know I wouldnt be one to try to take those risks, but then again Im not a risk taker. Your situation is a wonderful situation, and it shows how good of a person you are to give a baby to someone who hasnt had one. Most women I would think probably wouldnt. So thats amazing!

Hello all. I am new to this site.  
I would like to share my story. I am 38 and I have three children and one grandaughter. I have been married to my fourth husband for a year now. He is 30, never been married never had kids. We have decided to try to have a baby. I got my IUD 5 years ago and its time to come out. I have had complications with my IUD but was afraid of getting pregneant if I had it removed so I just learned to deal with. The IUD made me gain weight, become moody and all that stuff. But today at 2:45 I am ridding my body of this "thing". I am nervous about becoming pregneant at my age, but I want so much to give my husband a child.

Okay another update! When i went pee a few minutes ago and wiped i was spotting. but im a still a week away from my period. so i googled what the spotting could mean, and it says that it could be caused by implantation of the egg into my uterine lining. so now im really excited, but i don't want to get to excited. has anyone else ever had implantation spotting? im going to take a hpt in the am! wish me luck! :)

Its been awhile since i updated! I have really enjoyed reading about all u guys that are pregnant! Congrats! Unfortunately thats not the case for me :cry I had my iud taken out on march 23rd and i have had a normal period every month since then, still no baby. Weve been having sex everynight and even went back to the dr to talk to her about any other things we should try. Her number one suggestion was not to stress about it and just let it happen. so ladies as hard as it is, don't stress! I should start again on september 1st, but were really hoping this is our month and I don't!! Good luck to everyone else out there trying! It will happen for us soon! :)

Thanks for the congrats, hang in there and baby dust to everyone. I'm so excited I go for an ultrasound in 2 weeks, don't ask me why but I have been feeling and dreaming there's 2, I hope not but if it happens I'll will truly be blessed. My husband and I have a 3 year old little girl that is so excited, but still don't understand lol she thinks we bought her a little bro or Sis. Just remember after your mc do it every other day for about two weeks and just relax and don't stress about. It will happen when the time is right, and just to let u guys know the day my iud was removed my doc told me to start trying and that I didn't have to wait a cycle or two. She's been working with IUDs for over 20 years. So good luck and baby dust to all!!!! :grin

Sineadjane, 
Maybe your clinic meant not an infection but it's possible you could be pregnant as soon as the coil is removed. This is the reason why he said if you had sex within the week, the sperm is still alive inside of you and when the coil is removed, you could be pregnant. Better talk to your OB again... :)

Hi, 
I am new to the site, I have been doing some research to see about how long most ppl wait after removing mirena iud to get pregnant. I am getting mine removed on the 25th so that we can ttc our second. I don't know how long it will take this time but i hope not long. It took us 9 months to conceive our son after coming off bc pills. I enjoyed reading all the diff. posts hope everybody wanting to conceive gets there quickly....waiting is terrible.

I had the mirena IUD from June of 2007, and had it taken out March 2010. My period started the next day. It was normal. In April, no period. In May a period and also in June and July. My cycles I have noticed are about 30 days long, but normal. My last period started July 8th. I was due for one August 7th. I have taken 3 preg. test about 3 days before said period was suppose to come, and they all came out neg. I have some of the preg symptoms but not all. I've recently become tired more than usual, and a bit moody. I also have some headaches and I've been dizzy twice. My breasts have not become tender. I will be taking a preg test today. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that is confused. :sigh

Mol10, 
My OB-Gyne did not do the ovulations test since I will fly already in the next 3 days. I was there in my home country only for summer holiday and they just opened the clinic (they also had holiday) on the day of my appoinment so there was no chance that he could do it. He said if he will check it (if I'm ovulating or not), I must stay there at least a month or two to follow up each step which I can't do since I am working abroad. That's why he suggested that I buy first this ovulations test to see if I'm ovulating or not then search a good OB-Gyne here where I worked! 
 
In your case, never heard a missed period after IUD. Most women like me had MC every month but very very light. 1-2 days (pantyliners are actually enough) very very light. I asked this to my OB if it's normal and he said "yes" as long as it is coming every month. Better talk to your Dr too and let's see what he will say. Goodluck!!! 8)

Spatzi, did the obgyn do any test on u to determine u were not ovulating?(blood etc.) or was it a wild guess? 
 
My story is, I too just had my mirena taken out in April. A week later I had my MC (4/23-4/28) then in May I had no MC but June 5th-10th I had a normal mC. That was the last time I had my MC,it's almost halfway in August and no MC. Is this normal?

Stephie, 
What kind of IUD you had before? Copper or Hormonal IUD (Mirena)? Each woman's body is different...some expect soon after the removal, some waited much longer to conceive like me. It's been one year now since I removed my Mirena and still no luck! Had appointment with my OB-Gyne and all ok. He said, maybe I am not ovulating so bought this ovulations test to see if I am ovulating or not. Will start the test on the 12th...hope + the result. Still wishing goodluck to all the women here still trying.... :roll

Wow, See that blows me away, being when I had it removed my doctor warned about pregnancy, and told me that My periods should be normal. But you know the tests only go so far. But oh well I will keep waiting. Hopefully it wont be too long. Im gonna go to my doctor in another month if it still hasnt happened and be like uh whats going on. But other than that I guess its all about waiting. Right? Life.. full of waiting..... I also decided to go back and read some of the older responses. Someone complaining about us wanting all to get pregnant right away. They must not understand. I thought about it and fully understand why all/if not most of us want to get pregnant away. I think we waited till we were 110% ready to have a baby. Now that we are at 110%, we are eager. Its like saying, okay dinners done, but how long is it gonna take to cool? You havent eaten all day and are starving, would you want it to hurry up and cool, or wait 45 minuets?... I think the situation is similar. We are eager, and yes we can wait, but we dont want to. But I guess there is always gonna be the few who just dont get it.

Its so frustrating but I'm pretty sure most of us on here would agree that your period is irregular after the IUD, especially right after getting it removed. I've read some on here that went months after removal without one. Mine wasnt on time either but they say thats normal after having it in. i had it for a few days..then it stopped just to start again for a day then stop and it did that for the month. hopefully it comes soon :)

Well I had My IUD Removed on the 28th of June, My period is a day late. We took one of the early pregnancy test just 4days ago, you know one of the ones that is suppose to detect early pregnancy. It was negitive. My period never came and its very very very regular. Like 28 days to the T. But, its late, and I got a second negitive today. Now neither test I took in the morning, but I didnt with my other two children either. I felt so silly taking one early, now feel even sillier taking one now and it still being negitive. Did anyone have a late period after they had their IUD removed? It was the Copper IUD...

Momof3maybemore, 
Your OB-Gyne is right...it is possible that you could be pregnant after your IUD removal since the sperm can last within you around 5 days. That means about 120 hrs so if you had sex within the last 72 hrs, the sperm is still alive. No wonder they suggest (if you really dont want to get preggy) at least one week no sex before the IUD removal. 
I don't know how long you got your IUD but each women is different. Some women easily got pregnant (as early as 2 weeks from IUD removal), some are even more than a year up to now, no luck. Even me, one year now since my Mirena IUD was removed, still waiting the waiting game! Still no luck! So to all the ladies still trying like me...goodluck to all of us :)

OK ladies question for you I got my IUD removal on 7/102010 and when I had it removed the OB ask if I had sex within the last 72 hours and I did. She said it is very likely that i could be preggos or could get preggos. Has anyone else heard this??? Also when I heard this I went home and took a O.H.T and it was pos. But I started bleeding like a period, (1st one is 3 years). Just wondering if you think I cold still be preggos?

Sunnyd68, 
You're not alone! I have also the same worries like you...after 10yrs Mirena IUD, my MC became irregular. Before IUD, had normal MC 5-6 days. But after IUD, only 2-3 days very light (just enough to use pantyliner). It's been 10 months now since Mirena IUD was removed, still no luck! 
 
Kimberly, 
Good to know I am not alone waiting the "waiting game". Good idea to have an appointment with my OB-Gyne and I'm scheduled to be there on 27th July as I am outside my home country. Will be there for summer holiday so it's pretty good timing to have an ultrasound like what you've said!!! Goodluck to us! 8)

Did anyone else have significant changes in their MC after having your IUD removed? Mine normally lasts atleast 5 days, but this time it was only 2-3 days and was really light. Just wondering if anyone else experienced this.

Hey everyone Ive wrote on here before about having issues getting pregnant after having my Mirena IUD removed. We've been trying for over a year now with no luck. Well Monday of the week I had to have surgery to remove a cyst on my left ovary that wouldnt go away for the past 3 months. This is the first time Ive ever had this problem. The doctors say that is why I havent been able to get pregnant. I dont know how long the cyst was there, I only found out about it because after talking to the doctor they decided to do utlrasounds. So it might be a good idea for those of you that are having issues to go get checked out, I know Im glad I did ;-) Now I just have to wait for the hubby to come home from iraq and hopefully we will concieve ;-) Goodluck to everyone!

Bad news for me this time. I started my MC yesterday!! :cry I thought i was especially after the results I got on the test and all the symptoms I've been having, but I guess it's either hormones or just in my head. Hopefully better luck next month. I'm still taking the prenatals and mucinex. Just found out yesterday my little brother is expecting another baby, their 3rd. I'm happy for them, but wish it was me too.

sunnyd68: Yes, it was quite fast and very shocking to me! For you, what you need to do is go get a digital preg test. The first non digital one I took was the same as yours. Very faint and I had to go into the direct sunlight to really see it. So I went straight to the clinic and had blood drawn and then to the store for a digital test. Both came back pos. and I didn't have to wait around any longer stressing out.

Positive Story: I had my ParaGuard IUD for a little over a year. Hubby and I decided to try for another child so I had it removed 4 Jun 2010. I was supposed to have ovulated already on the 2nd. I thought I'd have to wait until the end of the month to try again. Well, after some positive thinking I figured maybe I ovulated late due to a trip we had taken (I know that can delay ovulation). Turns out I got a positive test on Thursday 17 June. I was shocked and I just hope everything goes well. I know it's early and you're supposed to wait a cycle. But I didn't even think it was possible. I just wanted to make sure everyone knows that there's always the posibility of fast conception after an IUD. Good Luck to all! And congrats to those who have been successful!

They say that the earliest a home preg test can pick up the hormone is 19 days after becomeing pregnant. So june 12 th would prob be too early for it to show up. Probably won't show up till around the 1st of July.

well, i'm still kinda confused and frustrated. Still haven't started yet, though i probably should've by now. But my periods aren't extremely regular, but i'm usually early if anything. i took a preg test today and got a funky answer. it was questionable. there's just barely a line on one side where the positive line would be. it says if there's anything there then you should consider it positive, but i don't want to get my hopes up, so i'll test again in a day or two if i haven't started by then. but it does give me a little bit more hope that maybe i am preg. anyway, good luck ladies. i'll be praying for yall, and hope you'll do the same for me. :?

Still no luck......!!! It's been 10 months now since I removed the Mirena IUD last Aug 2009. As I've said before, I had it for 10 yrs (2x each 5yrs) ... the waiting game really sucks! I have had a healthy pregnancy before (also easily get pregnant) but after 10 yrs IUD, looks like the hormones destroyed my body!!! That's what I'm starting to think now! Anybody experienced the same this long??? :? :sigh

I hade the Mirena inserted after my second son was born, weight gain , I did not have periods after 2 months of having. I was really worried because I get pregnat very easily so I will take a preganancy teste everymont, I was going insane , my husband was able to fill a poke during intercorse, so I decided to remove it after a year, that was april of 2008, I had 3 misscarriages since then after 2 healthy pregnancies and no miscarriages before, my dostos can't explained was in going on, I'm goin to a fertility specialist next week, I think the mirena destryed my body, never taken pills or any type of hormones before the mirena I always use the days method, I'm extremely regular so always worked for me, base on my experience if you are planing to have more kids get something else not the mirena. :sigh

Here's my story.. I had the copper iud removed on April 7th the last day of my menstrual cycle. May 7th came and no period. I took hpts from May 7 through May 29th all came back negative yet I had all the symptoms. I was in aww at the fact that I was tired all the time, had increased my trips to the restroom my boobs were hurting and yet test after test they were all negative. On May 30th I decided to go for a blood test, the following day I received the call...what do you know...positive, so I went to one of those pregnancy clinics and finally the stick had a faint line indicating I was pregnant, so they referred me to an gyn on June 1st. He had me at 8 wks calculating from my lmp, so when he did the transvaginal ultrasound nothing came up. I was disappointed, frustrated..to name a few of my feelings. He then sent me to get more blood drawn and it came back at hcg levels of 480, he said I am in a very early stage of the pregnancy so he re-scheduled me for June 21st. So we will see what happens at that visit, I am just frustrated at not knowing how far along I am... This whole thing has been stressful, after about 2 months w/o a period finally a positive test, then nothing on the sonogram.....AAAAAAYYYY :sigh

Good luck at figuring all this out...because its confusing. I had mine removed after 13 months and started my MC 2 days later that was a heavy one lasting 5 days..so I had a feeling I was pregnant so I was taking HPT that all came up negative..but sure enough I found out 2 weeks later I was. it was just so soon for the HPT to show it. I assumed the 5 day bleeding was to be considered a period..but it wasn't. i started bleeding again about a week after that for only half the day and that is what they said was my actual period (makes no sense) but thats how we figured my due date and its right on. But I read on here everyday and alot of girls say how it messes with their cycles. keep in mind some conceive fast (like me..I did in22 days after having it removed) and others take months..but if it does take a while it will be worth the wait. GOODLUCK!! =)

Hi i am new to this site. My name is Katie i am 26 and my BoyFriend of over a year has told me he is ready to have a baby with me which i am Extremely excited about. I have a few questions tho .. I had the Mirena IUD in for a very short time due to the fact it was placed a little to low and caused extreme cramping. I had the IUD put in on April 20th had my normal cycle the next day. On mothers day my boyfriend told me the great news and i already had an appointment to have the IUD removed on May 10th because of the issues i was having. We had intercourse the night it was removed and then i started a brown MC (Dr. said it was just oxidized blood because the IUD slowed down my MC) but it lasted 5 days, should i consider that my period it was pretty heavy the full 5 days. Once the "cycle" was over we have not used any ovulation kits or anything just trying the old fashion way of trying as much as possible and hope for the best. I have been feel bloated and my breasts are extremely tender and have been for over a week now and a little moody but that could all be PMS or wishful thinking. 
 
Since i have not had and spotting or bleeding of any kind and i am confused as to what to consider my cycle... if it reset my cycle having it removed i would be due to start anyday now as my normal cycle is 26 days... part of me is hoping i am pregnant already but a big part of me tells me it is just to soon... I did take a HPT this morning and it came back negative. :sigh but i figured it would say negative actually so it wasnt much of a dissappointment.

I don't know about you ladies, but after having my IUD removed after having it since '02 I've had some hormone problems. I've had bad mood swings, headaches, stomach upset, tired, and several other things....some that might make you believe you were pregnant if you are trying. So maybe this is what's going on with some of you other ladies. I don't know, but my doc told me that it's really common to have hormone imbalances for a couple months after getting the IUD out. It's just your body's way of trying to even things back out. Hope that helps. Good luck yall.

Mrs. Freeman, some of the ladies here experienced the same...had symptoms of pregnancy but negative on test. I think, it has something to do with the IUD long time in a woman's body. Some suggests to take blood test and if you are really pregnant, it will show! Goodluck! ;)

Well, I just had my IUD removed after having it in since Feb '02. I believe it was the old fashion copper type. I had a little bleeding that day, but then started my MC today. I'm hoping that it won't take too long, but I've heard rumors that there are higher risks if you get pregnant within the first month of having a misscariage.  
I'm also a nurse, so I thought I'd make a few suggetions for you ladies who are trying to conceive but not having much luck. I've done some studying in some of my medical jernals and found some vitamins that seem to show that they can really help. Plus it's proven that taking 200mg of gaufinesin a day (the plain Robittusin) 3 x a day helps the cervix to be ready for pregnancy. Also, Vit C (1000mg a day), B12 up to 50 mcg a day, Folic Acid 400 mg a day, B6 up to 50 mg a day, Zinc up to 30 mg a day, Selenium 100mcg a day, and Vit E can also greatly increase your chances. Check the prenatal vitamins at most stores....a lot of them already have most of this stuff in them and will save you some money. My doctor suggested a prenatal vitamin anyway. The studies also show that smoking and caffiene (including chocholate and dark teas) decrease your odds. And if you really want to try really hard there are some vitamins you can give to your man to increase his sperm count and mobility.....B12 50mcg/day, Zinc 30mg day, Selenium 100mg/day, L-Arginine 300mg/day (you can get it at walmart), Folic Acid 400mg/day, B6 50mg/day, and Vit C 1000mg/day. Well, I hope that helps yall out. You can find most of that info on the computer too if you look for it just incase you want to check it out for yourself. Let me know if any of it seems to help. Good luck to everyone. I'll let you know how my situation goes as well. God Bless!!

Karen, I hope it works out for you. I havent taken a prego test yet, but I started my period. So I dont even know if I even want to take a prego test now. My hubby is about to leave on deployment and I ovulate before he leaves so hopefully it works.

Also new to this site and relieve to know that I am not alone waiting for the "waiting game"! I am 36 now and have an 11 yr old daughter, never thought that I would want another one after such a long time. I have had a Mirena IUD 2X (each 5 years)...that means, I had it for a total of 10 yrs. I had it removed Aug 2, 2009 and since then, trying to get pregnant! Unfortunately after that till this moment (9 months now), still no baby! After reading all your comments, probably it's true that the longer you have it, the longer you'll conceive! I'm still keeping my fingers crossed and have in mind what my OB-GYNE in Germany has told me...between 3 months to 1 year to get pregnant! Congrats to all of you expecting and goodluck to us women still trying!!! :roll

I'm new to this site. I have 2 young boys and really want a girl to complete my family. My 2 boys are almost 1 and 2 this June. I've have the 10yr IUD in for almost 10 month niow. Scheduled to have IUD removed at the end of this week. I've had NON Stop bleeding since the it was inserted. My dr checked and everything looked fine. She told me to give it some time for my body to get used to it. I think 9 mo's is long enough time to have a lengthy mentrasl cycle. I wonder how long it will or could take for my to see if that girl will finally come along?? Will I lose my 1st preg on IUD is out?? Will it taske a while or happen right away?? Does it depend on my body, considering I've been bleeding for 9 mo's straight.

Kngrove, I had my IUD removed march23 and still havent gotten a positive test yet. I did a ovualtion calender to see when I ovualted. My ovulation was april 9 to the 12. And still nothing. The waiting game is the hardest thing to do. I hope may is the month, my hubby leaves for deployment soon so i hope he leaves me a lil gift before he leaves. Just hang in there it will happen when it happens.

same happened with me....seems like youre just gonna have to wait it out 
you may still be preg but the iud seems to make pregnancy detection difficult even if you get a blood test done....other women have had to wait at least six weeks before they got a positive preg result...i would say track ovulation to see if youre still ovulating....and then play the waiting game...others have had to wait a month or more before they got their cycles again after iud removal....good luck

Karen, usually after you IUD is taking out it takes awhile for your cycle to go back to normal. But just give it time. Have you done a ovualtion calender. That helps out a lot. good luck...

I am new to this site. But from what I gather from everyone's post is that the iud causes delayed cycles when they are removed. It seems as if they also alter the reults of pregnancy tests...so many people said they had negative tests just to find out they were ideed pregnant...even some women got blood tests done that were negative and they were pregnant as well. I think maybe the iud lowers a womans hormone levels making pregnancy detection difficult. 
 
I got my copper iud removed mar 24 in the middle of my cycle. I had it in for three years. I ovulated on apr 5th (I can always feel my ovulation) My cycle was due this past saturday on apr 17 but it didnt come. Of course i was excited because i am very regular and have never been late on a cycle except for when I got preg with my daughter. I took a HPT it was negative. I was very confused so I started doing research and thats when I came across this site and lots of you guys saying that you've had delayed periods after the iud. I am extremely annoyed because they tell you the copper iud is not supposed to alter your cycles. Now I have no idea if im preg or not or when my cycle is coming or even if it'll be regular again :upset

Hello ladys,  
I just hade my Paragurard removed monday April 12. Me and my husband are ready to concieve. I'm a little scared with all the stories I'm reading here. the first day of my last menstraul (FDLMP) was 4/9/2010. Is it too early for me to worry about being pregnant? I know that I would ovulate unitl the 23, but I scared that I would be able to have a child for awhile. What do you think?

Hi Everyone,  
I had my Mirena IUD removed in May 2009. It took me a few months to finally get my period, I had none the entire 4 1/2 years I had it. My period has been very irregular for the past couple of months, so I went to my doctor to try and find out why. I ended up having an ultrasound done and the results showed I had endomertioma ( I was told it is cysts on my ovaries and blood that flowed backwards and is covering my ovaries ) the doctor wanted me to wait 6 weeks and then have another ultrasound. He is hoping that the endometrioma will resolve itself. I've never had any issues at all before, I got pregnant very easily with my daughter who is now 11. Me and my husband have been actively ttc since day 1 of the IUD removal. I was wondering if anyone has had any similar issues? Any comments would be greatly appreciated ;-)

Hello I am fairly new to this site... I have a question as well I had my Paragard IUD removed due to an uterine infection and I had a profuse amount of blood that started on the 22nd that which I also had pain. Now I have been feeling tired and sore ..like my limbs hurt I had that issue with a prior pregnancy. Now the confusing part is my LMP was on March 3rd that rule that the heavy bleeding was due to the infection now I am late since its the 14th I am usually 24 day cycle I am confused can I get some answers back and do you think its too early to go get a pregnancy test?

I was wondering if anyone else has shared my experience and has any thoughts. 
 
I am 32 years old. I had my copper IUD removed in September 2009 after having it for 8 years. We started TTC November 2009 after our doctor recommended we wait a couple of cycles. In Mid-January 2010, my period was late and we got a positive pregnancy test at home. About 1.5 weeks later, before going to the doctor, I started to bleed. I went to the doctor the same day I started to bleed. Urine and blood tests at the office showed I was NOT pregnant. The doctor said I probably had a "spontaneous abortion" (i.e. early miscarriage or chemical pregnancy), but I would never know for sure. We started TTC again and in Mid-March, I was late again and again got a positive home pregnancy test (different brand this time). I took three home tests in a span of five days to be safe. In each, I showed I was pregnant. I scheduled an appt to go to my doctor 8 days after my first positive home pregnancy test, but three days after having taken the last positive test. At the doctor's office, I took a urine test and had an ultrasound. Both came out negative. I was again baffled. I reassured my doctor that I had taken 3! tests at home and that all were positive. Doctor again said couldn't know for certain, but likely that I again had a "spontaneous abortion." After two, I'm getting a little nervous, but want to stay positive and hope that this is not unusual. We will keep TTC, but would love to know if anyone else out there has shared this experience and what your ultimate result was.  
 
Thanks in advance.

baby2???  
I cant understand much of anything either when it comes to this! haha when I got mine removed I had a very normal 4 day long period after..and thats what I thought my LMP was for figuring out a due date..but I was wrong. 2 weeks after that I bled for half a day..and thats what my due date is based around.. doesnt make sense but whatever!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to share that got my IUD removed after almost 4 years on dec 17 09 we conceived the first of Jan and we are expecting a baby on October 1st 2010! We had so many misconceptions with the drs because I never got a real period but i stillovulated and my horomone levels kept going up but they couldnt find a baby! so they told me I wa miscarrying most likely, my husband didnt want to believe it and decided that it was best if we went home and just waited it out, when i became so sick and miserable and couldnt bare living like that any longer we went in for a dnc and they found the baby right away! (heartbeat and all) I ended up getting pills to help my nausea and my dr told me that the other drs were treating me as if i ovulated like anybody else and didnt counter in the fact that I got pregnant so quick after my IUD! Im thankful to say so far baby looks good and im sticking with that one doctor! :) I wish you all good luck! and remember everything happens for a reason and it will happen when its supposed to! dont stress about it and exercise to get healthy, i was exercising for about a month and half before we started trying to have a baby ! it really helps to get healthy!

a blood test can show a positive 7 days after conceiving..and a HPT you should be good to take now especially if you are already late. I say go for it! =) with my 2nd baby I was only 2 days late and the HPT showed positive. This pregnancy I messed up on my period date so all my HPT were taken to early and were negative..but then when I figured it out I went in for a blood test 1 day late for my period and got a positive! =) GOOD LUCK!!

Hi! =) As far as how long it takes to conceive is so different. For me, Im 3 1/2 months pregnant and conceived approximately 27 days after removal...others on here it happened sooner and some a few months after. I was actually just at the obgyn that removed my IUD and he said a woman came in last week and found out she got pregnant only 7 days after it was taken out. So I would say have fun trying and hopefully it happens soon :)

I am not medical in any way but the chances of ovulating and becoming pregnant 3 days after your period are very slim so the cramps could hae been due to something else. It is usual that you will Ovulate about 14 days before your next period so that is about a week after you finish give or take. so keep trying and I am sure it will happen soon xxxxxx

I am new to this site and just have a few questions and need some advice. I started prenatal vitamins and had my copper iud removed on march 2nd after 4 years of having it. I had my period as usual on march 8th and it lasted till the 13th. We have been trying ever since. on the 16th i started having a lot of cramping, bloating, nausea, headaches, breast tenderness and back pain that I am continuing to experience. I know it is to early to tell if I am pregnant but was wondering if it is normal to have these symptoms post removal. And also would like to know how long it usually takes to concieve after.

I did have mine recently removed. I would suggest waiting one period before getting pregnant though. I also have a friend that had her's removed shortly after i did. She waited one period and she is now pregnant. The cool thing is that our babies will be born really close together. So don't be discouraged.

So just an update. I went to the doctor yesterday and confirmed that I am & weeks pregnant. Accutally further along than I thought. I had my Mirena removed Jan. 12th and had bleeding Jan 15-18. I started cramping and bleeding heavily with large clots on Jan 27th and learned that I had concieved immediatly after having my iud removed and that I was having a miscarriage. Now the doctor says that i concieved around the 10th. I didn't get a positive pregnancy test until March 7th and I took them on feb 21st and 28th and on mar 4th. I was even taking ovulation test durning O and did not get a positive result on those either. So I was getting very frustrated and upset that i wasn't getting pregnant. So try not to get frustrated and do not rely on ovulation tests or get frustrated by a negative pregnancy test. My husband and I just continue to "practice" and we got lucky. Congrats to those that have gotten pregnant and good luck to those trying. Just keep trying.

Hey Everyone, 
I am new. I had the Mirena IUD. I didn't have it very long. I only had it for a little over a year. i already have two small children. i am planning to get married on May 15th. We have been trying eve since i had it taken out. Which was the beginning of Feb. I think something may be wrong. After i had it taken out i didn't bleed very much at all. The day after i bled moderately. It stopped and then I very lightly spotted for about three days. It was barely noticeable. i have gained wait and feel tired all the time. i took a test yesterday and it was neg. :sigh

On my fourth month of ttc :sigh . I had severe cramps on March 8 and started bleeding right after. Felt like contractions. My mother think I had a miscarriage? Has anyone experienced. Doctor thinks my uterus is contracting back from having my iud removed in Dec. Going to get checked out on March 29. Praying to get pregnant soon. Good luck to everyone.

Dear 5or6? My first month after removal was odd too. I had a period on jan 2 had the iud remover jan 12 bled jan 15-18 the on jan 27 started bleeding again. Doctor blevieve I actually miscarried because my uterus just wasn't ready. I thought I would ovulate around feb 11th and we were def trying hard. I took tests on the 21st 28th and march 3rd all negative although I felt pregnant. I took one on march 7th because hubby insisted that I smelled different (weird I know) and that he knew I was pregnant. I took the test expecting a negative and was really surprised to see positive. So don't give up. It does happen. Try not to get frustrated I was starting to get that way and it was depressing me a bit. Just eat healthy take lots of folic acid and let it happen. Good luck!

sounds frustrations..I would either get a blood test to know for sure or just wait it out to see if your period comes..because it is really common to go a few months without a period after getting it removed.. 
good luck though

Very frustrated, my period is 5 days late but I have took a tests 4 days before period expected, 1 day after, 3 days after, and now 5 days after - but all negitive. I know it is eairly still and this is my first month after removing iud but I just really want to know for sure yes or no so I can plan. If it is going to be try again next month thats ok I just want to know, it's just so frusterating! Any suggestions???

I had my last period on jan 27th and have yet to have another period or a positive pregnancy test. My husband is in the army and is getting deployed in may. We are ttc before he leaves and and wondering if anyone else had similar problems after having their iud removed. I got pregnant with my first two kids while on the pill and now I want to be pregnant it isn't happening. Isn't that how life goes!

Thanks for the info Julieh79. I am glad to hear that everything is going well for you juliemitchell09, I completely agree with you about doctors not knowing everything and I am glad you are going to show tha doctor up! I had a really hard experience when I was pregnant with my first birthchild (she is my 3rd child because I have 2 adopted children that are 1 year older than her). All my life I had wanted to be a mother, in I actually got married very young (2 months before my 18th birthday) because I was very excited to get on with life and start my family (now that I am older I know that yes I was crazy to try to skip those single years that are very needed to have other life experiences). Anyway, I tryed for about 3 years to get pregnant with my first husband but - nothing. Finally the doctor said that I had severe PCOS and could not get pregnant. Well life happened and I got divorced and remarried and decided to do foster care with my new husband for "drug-exposed" infants while we decided what direction we wanted to go in our journy to have a family. Needless to say not 1 but 2 of our little foster babbies stole our hearts and when they both came up for adoption at the same time there of corse was no way we could choose between our children so we signed up to adopt both. At this time we (of corse) found out that I was pregnant as well! So now we would go from a newly wed couple to the parents of 3 in less than 1 year! We were very suprised but there would be exactly 1 year between the 2 we had nd the one on the way, or so we thought, unfortuntly my daughter was born at 23 weeks gestation, she was lucky to be as big as she was but that was only 1 pound 7 ounces. What had happened was that my doctor did not diagnose that I had bacterial vaginosis and when I went into urgent care at my hospital complaining of unusual amount of discharge they dismissed me as first time pregnant over worrier - my daughter was born one week and 2 days later. Also the doctor that delivered my daughter (a doctor I had never met before the week I spent under her care in the hospital trying to keep my daughter from being born) told me the whole time I was in labor with her that babbies aren't viable until 24-26 weeks gestation. She even said right after I delivered my daughter patting my knee "we'll do better next time", while my tiny "micro-premie" was born breathing trying to cry and definitly ready to fight!!! Well it did take 3 months in one of the best NICUs in the country (Sharp Mary Birch Hospital for Women) and a top Children's Hospital surgical team to put a clip on an under developed valve in her heart (PDA ligation) but now my little girl is pretty near perfect! She is 8 years old and top of her class in reading, plays on a softball team in spring and is still just as onry as ever! I know that we got extremly lucky with her and her health, she not even on any medications, but she will always be a very thin get tired easily and be prone to catching colds and such from a lower immune system. Well, I really didn't intend to write abook on here so sorry about that, my point was just that doctors are definitly just people and they don't know everything so trust yourself first - if you feel something about yourself you know best, get second opions if you don't agree - you are in the driver's seat. So thanks for letting me share my story, I hope somebody gets something out of it but if not, I did - THANKS.

Update: 
I had my first Prenatal Appointment today and was told according to my HCG levels at this point, I am actually 8 weeks and 6 days pregnant!! WOW so that means that I did not in fact experience a Chemical Pregnancy but my Dr. believes that I just had blood drawn too early to detect a high enough level of HCG to register as Pregnant. I am still sort of in shock over all of this but I am happy that I began taking Prenatal vitamins as soon as I had my IUD removed because apparently shortly thereafter I conceived. There is hope out there ladies and from what I was told...if the Dr. does not do "serial blood tests" and an ultrasound BEFORE he/she diagnoses a Chemical Pregnancy...seek an answer from a second opinion or demand those things! 
 
I do not drink, smoke anymore or do drugs but some women of child bearing age do and if Dr.'s continue to "diagnose" chemical pregnancies without thoroughly investigating it, some women who do partake in these activities may do these things while completely unaware that they are pregnant. I intend to take my Ultrasound pics of our baby up to my former Dr.'s office to show him our "chemical baby" to show him how crappy of Dr. he really is!

I hàd my mirena iud removed on Jan. 12 and had what I thought was a period on the 15-18. My husband is in the army and we are hoping to concieve quickly. I was on the pill with my two other children and figured it would be easy to get pregnant when we started trying. I started bleeding heavily on jan 27 and discovered I was having a miscarriage. Didn't think it would happen that easy! Now I feel like I am pregnant but am not sure. I would have ovulated around the 11th and we have been having sex consistantly. But the test came up neg. But I am sooo tired and sick to my stomach and have to pee all the time. I should be able to get a positive by now right?

I wasn't sure what it was either so I googled it and this is what I found.. 
-A chemical pregnancy is the clinical term used for a very early miscarriage. In many cases, the positive pregnancy test was achieved before the woman’s period was due but a miscarrige occured before a heartbeat was able to be seen on an ultrasound. Chemical pregnancies are unfortunately very common. 50 to 60% of first pregnancies end in miscarriage very early in pregnancy. Most occur without the woman even knowing that she was pregnant. 
 
Hope that helps..I never heard of that either til I was reading on this site.

Okay so just a little short update and a question... 
 
I had a Chem. Preg. in early January and my AF started 23Jan2010 which was two days late (I am VERY regular) but it only lasted literally 24 hours and was REAL crampy. I have not taken a HPT since the Chem. Preg. for fear of disappointment. I was "due" to ovulate on 05-06Feb. and am pretty sure I did due to CM and BBT and husband and I did the deed twice on both days (TMI I know...sorry!). Since then (which would only be about 9dpo) I have had EXTREME fatigue and it seems that no matter how much sleep I get, I am falling asleep in the middle of the day, nearly falling asleep on my computer desk and heading to bed earlier than my three kids do! I do not have any other issues besides headaches but that happens during the cold/flu season anyway for me due to allergies. 
 
My question is: is it possible that I really did not have a Chem Preg. at all and that I am still preggo from January?? The CP was only diagnosed via Quantitative Blood Test...no ultrasound and I have not been back to have blood work done nor have I taken HPT since then. That was on January 13, 2010. I had some issues with my first pregnancy where I was around 7.5 wks along before it would come positive on HPT's. I did not have Blood Tests done during that pregnancy to determine pregnancy so who knows if it would have shown up that way sooner. I am just kind of curious if this sounds possible to anyone on here? I am lost...lol

hi all,  
Congratulations Dmarie and anyone else expecting. Good luck Jesspald. I posted a while ago wondering if i could be pregnant. It turns out i wasnt and the pill was making me ill. i came off it 22nd feb and had light period for 2 days on the 27th. We have been TTC since. I think I may have ovulated on the 6th but i am so unsure. is that too early? I really want it to happen soon but these have been the longest 2 weeks and still 2 more weeks til next period. Im driving myself crazy thinking about it. I would so love a little girl. I have 2 boys already 12 and 9. I miss having a baby around. 
 
Anyways i loved reading all ur stories and baby dust to all of us. I'll keep you all posted

It looks like my last posting didn't show up. Well i will try again. The short version im 32 and have 2 children 9 and 10. I had my iud for 4 years no period the last three. Iud was removed jan 7th 2010, AF 9th-12th, spotting the 18th &19th. I took 2 test the 4th and 6th of feb ya it was the 5 day sooner one but both neg. on the 10th i took another and got a faint positive so off to the Dr i went and the blood test said yes. so those of you TTC it can happen very fast. :)

Good afternoon all. I am new to the site. I had my cooper IUD removed on Jan 14th 2010 (after 10 yrs of having it), which is less then a month ago, and we have been trying to get prego ever since. I was a little disappointed when I got my cycle this morning. I just knew it would happen right away. I am a mother of 2,11 and 10, and want just 1 more. Does anyone know about getting pregnate after having the cooper IUD so long??? :cry

Something else often heard, even from doctors, is that ovulation is on day 14 of the menstrual cycle (with day one being the day you get your period). Some women hear this and decide to plan to have sex on day 14. The problem is that many women don’t ovulate on day 14 of their cycle. Normal ovulation can occur as early as day 10 and as late as day 20 (or even later, especially if your cycles are irregular).

My cycle has been all messed up since having my iud removed Dec 2. They are usually like clock work. I was over 6 days late and when I took the pregnacy test it said neg. So good luck to you!

Good luck! I pray you conceive a girl. I am praying for a boy:)

I have had my IUD in place for about 2 1/2 years when we decided to conceive again. I had the IUD removed on Jan 6, 2010 right as my menstrual cycle was ending. Normally I am on a regular 4 week cycle. I should of started my period again on the 31st of Jan. but did not. I was excited to take a pregnancy test but it came out negative :sigh I waited two days and took another one, again, negative. I am now 5 days late and just cannot figure out what is going on with my body! I had the copper IUD in place (no hormones) so I cant imagine having it taken out could have messed with my cycle. Any suggestions?

Unsure, 
I kinda have the same thing. I didnt have the long period but I only had 1 since my IUD came out (dec. 2nd)..and first period was dec 4th that lasted 4 days (I know the date for sure..and I know for sure we convieved on the 18th) so that would make me 9 weeks tomorrow..but they are saying I'm only 6..so thats also 3 weeks off like they are saying for you. I can't figure it out..but whatever I guess. atleast I know Im pregnant and thats all that matters but cant figure out why or how the date got so messed up especially when I know the date for sure. They told me that alot of times when you get your IUD taken out the first period messes with your ovulation days..and thats why sometimes its hard to plan right away when to get pregnant..and for us that do sometimes thats why we dont get the day right..we got pregnant later than what we thought. I would go ahead and make your appointment with your OB. Im sure everything is fine..but your just not as far along as you thought. The best thing is to wait til the 8 week mark and have the ultrasound to determine exactly how far along you are. GOODLUCK!!! :)

I had the Muriena IUD for almost three years and never had a period the entire time I had it. I currently have a daughter who will be 5 this year. Me and my boyfriend discussed having a baby once the new year started. So on December 16th I had my IUD removed. It was much eaiser then getting it put in, I didn't feel anything. The only thing was it took the docotor forever to find the strings. I thought this was what I wanted, but I didn't think it would happen for a while. I had a period for nine days, and three weeks later had a povtive pregancy test. I went online and did a due date calcuator off the first day I had a period, which put me about 5 weeks when I went to the hospital. I had some other isseus which was why I went but when they did the blood test the docotor said I was only two weeks? I don't understand if this was becuase of the long period but as of now I still dont' know how far along I am. The docotor wanted me to come back because she wanted to see if the pregancy took. But I did not go back figured I would talk with my OB which I haven't yet seen. I keep looking at early preg signs and I have them all, constipation, nausea, I am not really that tired but I di have a serious lack of energy, and tender breasts. Still no period, I am almost scared to go but I am sure if something was wrong I would of had a period by now. I am really unsure how normal this is becuase I didn't have a period for three years and it was a very long period? Can someone please tell me if they have ever been through anything like this? Or what should i do?

Hello everyone!!! I had my IUD put in 3 1/2 years ago. I had my IUD removed on December 9,2009 and am trying to get pregnant. I took the ovulation test and I had sex the day before ovulation and the day of ovulation. Now I am going on 6 days late on my period and they are always right on time? I took 2 pregnancy tests and they are negative. This is so frustrating. Glad I found this site. It is really helpful. I am gonna wait a few more day and will post a update. :sigh

UPDATE: Thanks Julieah79 for your post! I went back to Dr. on Friday (01/29/2010) and had more blood drawn. She had it rushed and it said Negative for HCG. I am actually kind of glad that it did though because I am ready to start over and see what happens this month or over the next few months! My ovulation should occur on or about 3rd or 4th of February so we'll see! I am hoping it will happen this time but if not I am gonna keep my head up! After all...we just started trying last month so we are at the very beginning of this journey! Thanks everyone for your tips and suggestions, they really help to ease my mind when I read them all! I will make sure that I update this thing when ever something new happens.

I read all these posts and decided not to insert IUD - I'm afraid to lose my fertility.. 
Girls, this time I'd like to ask you one question (sorry for the off topic) - maybe somebody has purchased this cellulite massager? (see the advertisement above). I'm thinking to buy it, but firstly want to get some opinions :)

I have never been on here before but I have some questions. I got the mirena (IUD) in 2006 after the birth of my daughter. I didnt have a menstral any during the time I had the Mirena. I recently had it removed October 2009. I have only had 1 cycle and it lasted 5 days. It wasnt very heavy. I havent had one since and it has been almost 2 months. I have took Pt test but they all were negative and even went to the doctor. Has anyone else experienced this. Please reply. :?

bella, 
I couldnt agree with you more! :) you could probably try one of those HPT that you can do 5 days before yous period is expected (but in your case..one you dont get..haha) If you do one..you'll have to let us know how it turns out..gooduck! :grin

All, 
I wish there was a way we could magically see what is going on inside of our bodies!!!!! I am 9 dpo, I am afraid to take a test. I am sure its too early. This is my first month trying, I will be disappointed but not discouraged. 
 
juliemitchell09, 
I just wanna wish you luck!!!!

HI!!! isn't this site awesome? I love it :) Anyways.I was reading your situation and isn't it fun to try and figure all this out? haha I absolutely agree with your body trying to hide the pregnancy symptoms. I didnt notice it anmore with or without the IUD removed..but I agree it does. I was looking up blood pregnancy tests and it says they tell immediately if you are..within 7-12 days of conception..so if you ovulated the 5th&6th..you should of tested positive on the 18th if you were. 
Its weird but with this pregnancy (my 3rd and the only one I got pregnant off after having an IUD removed) for some reason the 4 HPT's I took all said negative..and I had even missed my period at the time..so I had to go for the blood test. But with my first 2 it would detect it at the earliest possible time it could. Kinda weird. I also had that one day of bleeding in there that lasted no time..at first I thought it was a normal period til I realized it wasn't normal to only last half a day. I wish our bodie were easier to understand :) but goodluck at your doctors appointment tomorrow. I will be looking forward to hearing what happens.

BTW: sorry...my symptoms have been very tender and sore breasts/nipples, slight dull cramping in lower abdomen, nausea throughout the day but no vomiting yet, fatigue and absolute emotional breakdowns (lol) over the most ridiculous things! I have also had a slight feeling of cravings for specific food items but not too strong. Some of these I had with my last Pregnancy but some are new to me. My biggest dilemma is that some believe that a woman CANNOT show signs and symptoms of pregnancy right after conception but I believe that if a woman is really in tune with her body, she can. For most women that are trying to conceive, we are usually paying real close attention to what is going on inside of our bodies in hopes of a baby! Any thoughts on symptoms and how early they are possible? Could they be Psychosomatic for some women??

Hello everyone! I am brand new to this site so please forgive me if I mess anything up while posting on here. I would like to ask anyone for some advice. Here is my current situation: 
 
I had a Paragard Copper IUD placed in January 2005 and had it removed December 16, 2009 in order to try to have another child. I had HEAVY periods the entire time but never had one single cramp (during placement nor afterward) and had a very pleasant experience having it removed as well. My periods have always been extremely regular (every 29 days on the dot) and last not more than 5 days but usually 4 days. I had a period on November 27, 2009 and then had another period on December 24, 2009 (8 days after removal). The Dec. period was lighter flow than usual but that was expected after removal. It lasted 4 days and was fine, slightly crampier than usual but not too bad. My ovulation was expected around 5th or 6th of January 2010 and CM and BBT showed definitive signs of "O". My husband and I had unprotected sex both on that 5th and then again on 6th. I began having symptoms of pregnancy similar to those with my first pregnancy shortly after Ovulation. I did not want to take HPT's because I had HCG issues with my first. My body apparently does not produce high enough HCG levels to show on HPT's and I have to basically have Quantitative Blood Tests for determination of Pregnancy. I decided to do HPT and it came back negative. Went in to Dr. (01/18/2010) and had QBT - level 2 HCG - negative. The symptoms continued and still do to this day. My period was due on January 21, 2009 and did not come until two days later. At around 7am on 23rd my period started and was extremely uncomfortable and crampy. The very next morning, I removed tampon and noticed very minimal blood so I put a panty liner on. Nothing since then...no blood, blood-tinged discharge...NOTHING. I am wondering if it is still possible to be pregnant but that my blood test was taken way too early to determine? I refuse to take more HPT's because all that happens is I am left feeling down and out afterward. I have an appointment for tomorrow morning at 11:15am to have another blood test taken but I am wondering if anyone else has had a similar situation? Has anyone noticed that their bodies seem to "hide" pregnancy after IUD's? I have read that some women's bodies do this, specifically if you had the IUD in for a long period of time. I would greatly appreciate any advice or suggestions from anyone! Thanks in advance and to those of you whom are TTC - I wish you nothing but the best of luck!

Well it happened. I started bleeding Tuesday afternoon, so I guess its back to square one. Maybe all those feelings I had was my body getting adjusted to no longer having the IUD in it. My period is light, which is pretty normal for me. Now I just have to know my ovulation time again. Here we go again. :roll

well Im glad to hear you havent gotten it yet. I would take another one but only if you dont let the diappointmet of a negative get to you to much. I took 4 at home and all were negative..and I even went til I missed it so they definately don't always work. But like I said before, our stories are so alike. Those 2 days of bleeding Jan. 1st may not of even been a period (mine wasn't.) So whether you do another home one or wait til the 8th..GOODLUCK!! :) (btw..Im way to impatient of a person to wait..haha so I would probably go with another home one). I hate the feeling of thinking your periods coming..I still get the cramping like its coming today even though Im 8 weeks along.
