Irregular periods. Have PCOS. Normal periods after putting the copper coil. Will my periods get irregular if I get it removed?

Hi I have a quick question. I suffered with PCOS for years. My periods were extremely irregular and i wouldn t often have one for months. I then had the copper coil in for 5 years and my periods were like clock work every 31 to 33 days and were extremely heavy. I have just had the coil removed and would like to know whether my menstrual cycle is likely to stay the same for a while i.e. or will my periods automatically go back to being extremely irregular. The reason i am asking is because i want to predict likely ovulation dates but i am not sure that i can do this as my periods were so irregular before i had the coil fitted.

Hi Nicola
The copper coil does not actually make the periods regular and is NOT used as a treatment for irregular periods.
My feeling is that your periods became regular(it can happen spontaneously) and the timing of the coil just happened to coincide with that.
If that is so, I would think your periods should continue to be regular and you should have no trouble with predicting ovulation dates.
Good luck.
