How Long Should I Wait After Paraguard Iud Removal Before I Try to Conceive?
I just had my paraguard cooper iud pulled out on 3/12 i will be ovulating this weekend. Does anyone have any advice or experiance on hoe long I should wait till I try to conceive. Is it better to wait or will it be ok to try to conceive as soon as possible?
So What Happened?™
Thank you to you all for such great advice. My husband and I spoke with our physician who did recommend to wait at least one cycle before trying to conceive. She stated that the uterus is inflammed at the time of iud removal and chances of miscarriage are more likely if I were to conceive before that first cycle. So we are going to try next month. I suppose I could wait. Thanks again to everyone who replied. This is an awesome site.

i concieved the same month that i had mine removed and had no problems. I dont think there is an issue since it is horomone free.

I have heard it takes three months after you have the I.U.D removed for your homones to return back to normal. You can try if your ovulating this weekend, I don't see the harm in trying :) Good Luck I hope it all works out for the best!

I've been told w/ my IUD that it is safe to start trying to conceive immediately after having it removed should I want to do so. That's one of the "perks" of this type of birth control.
Go for it! :0)

I didnt have that kind of IUD, I had Mirena. But was told that I could try as soon as it was removed. It turns out that the iud just wasnt for me so I had it removed about 1 1/2 weeks ago (we arent trying to have another though) we are trying a different method. But if we wanted to we could have tried that very same day. But try talking with your doctor.

I had that same iud and had it removed last august. Started trying to concieve that same day and before the next month I was pregnant. So the answer to your question is ASAP!

I would ask your doctor/midwife, but I got pregnant the cycle after I had mine removed and everything was perfect. I was told that it was OK to start trying right away. Good Luck!
