IUD Removed 11 days ago

This is the first time I have ever posted on here. So, my question is..... when can I get pregnant!? :-)  I had my IUD removed August 6th. My husband and I have a 3 year old son and we decided that we are ready for another baby. Now that we have made that decision, we are very anxious! When I first had the IUD removed, we had sex that night and then I bled for about 2 days after. I stopped bleeding for a day or 2, we had sex again, and I started bleeding again, a little heavier this time, which lasted for 3-4 days. I'm wondering if that could have been my AF? I haven't had a period in over a year (I had my IUD just over 2 years). I’m so unsure and I just want to know! Does anyone have any advice for me!?

i had mine out 6-15 and am now almost 9 weeks prego so you can try right away although they recommend you to wait a couple of cycles. I got pregnant my second cycle and so far everything seems to be well with the baby. i only have  3 more weeks till im outta the danger zone so i am getting very excited and hope that this pregnancy sticks. The reason they tell you to wait is because it takes a few cycles to build up the lining of your uterus but i had a very very! heavy first cycle and figured it would be ok and my lining was built up enough sure enough the next month i was prego

EmsMom & I were both on the group she mentioned in her PS and we both had to wait a long time... my OPKs never came positive till I used 3 types of pills, Provera to get AF regular, Metformin to regulate PCOS/nautural hormone inbalance & Clomid for egg maturity.

I am a mommy to a 3yr old boy, got married last year in May. My husband has 2 kids an almost 6yr old boy and a 3yr old girl(tom boy).  After having my IUD for 2+ years we decided to remove my IUD on 7/17/09 and try for a baby of our own. My DH and I had been trying for 9 months and then WE FINALLY GOT A faint BFP on 4/20 & 21/2010!!! I have PCOS so the struggles of trying to conceive were tough, but it can be done.

Here is a little about my history:
My cycles ranged from 90+days to 36days, so they were all over the place, no ovulation ever occured on my own. After consulting with my OBGYN, I started Provera 1/19/10 for 10days and then 50mg of Clomid on cycle day 5 of AF for 5days... I didnt ovulate. I then started over again w/provera and 100mg of Clomid and finally got my first + OPK + on 4/5/10 8pm (CD 17) & had my first TWW ever..... now I am pregnant, 23 weeks along and Due Date: 12/30/10.

Good luck to you, and if you have any questions, let me know!!

I had my IUD (Mirena) inserted on June 13, 2007 after I had my son and had it removed on July 2, 2009, it took me 39 days before I got my first period, and I know some women who it's taken 90+ days to receive their first period. Your body's just trying to get back to normal, I know how frustrating it can be while your sitting in lingo, not sure weather your pregnant or when your first period will show up, but try to be patient it will happen when the time is right! Also your body will play tricks on you after the removal that make you think that your pregnant, I myself went through these, and boy are they not fun, especially since period and pregnancy symptoms are so similar. Most women will agree that the bleeding after removal is just removal bleeding not a period. Also I know a very few women who have gotten pregnant right away after removal, so anything is possible, but most Dr's will advise you to wait at least one cycle so that your uterus lining is thick to hold the baby. It took me almost 7 months till I finally got my BFP (Big Fat Positive). Also I would start taking prenatal vitamins ASAP, my Dr told me to start taking them 3 months prior to conceiving to make sure that your body is ready to go. I am currently 34 weeks and 4 days pregnant with a healthy baby boy. Good luck and hope this helps!

Here are my stats after Mirena removal:
July 2, 2009 ~ Mirena IUD removed
July 2-10 2009 ~ Very very heavy bleeding from Mirena removal
August 10, 2009 ~ First AF after Mirena removal, 39 days it took to get it
August 10-17 2009 ~ AF normal 7 days for me prior to having Mirena inserted
September 2, 2009 ~ Positive OPK ~ 16 days after AF
September 13-20, 2009 ~ AF, didn't use OPK's this month
October 15-22, 2009 ~ AF, didn't use OPK's this month
November 18-25, 2009 ~ AF, didn't use OPK's this month
December 20-26, 2009 ~ AF, didn't use OPK's this month
January 6, 2010 ~ Positive OPK, BD using Pre-Seed found at babyhopes.com
January 7, 2010 ~ BD without using Pre-Seed
January 17, 2010 ~ Very very faint positive (11dpo)
January 19, 2010 ~ BFP (13dpo) using a First Response Gold Digital with first morning urine, so it took me almost 7 months to finally get my BFP!

P.S . You should join the group How long did it take you to conceive after Mirena IUD removal, the women on there are very supportive and helpful

hi mb im going in on friday for removal of mine but by my understanding the cervix is opened up  and all that which you would already know it could be just a cervical bleed but consult your dr because with the removal the cervix would be i guess traumatised by it all then sex on top of that i asked similar question about how soon can you conceive after  it's removal today up at the hospital my hubby and i also ready for another and the nurse said  some women fall pregnant a couple of months after removal dont know if any of this helps good luck with the baby making always fun to practice ;-)
