Brief Answer:
Removal of IUD can delay periods

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for your query.

I have read you query and I understand your concerns about delayed periods.

Following is my reply:

1) Removal of IUD is associated with delayed periods in some women.

2) Though it was inserted 6months back, it is possible that the periods could have been delayed.

3) Please wait for periods to resume without taking any pills.

Regards

I hope I answered you query and addressed your concerns.

Let me know if you wish to ask any further questions. I will be glad to help you.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

If you your boyfriend has ejaculated in you after removal of IUD there is possibility of pregnancy.

In that case wait for a week and then do pregnancy test.

Let me know when was your last period date?

What if I was intimate with my boyfriend and he ejaculated in, could that possibility mean I am pregnant?
I had my IUD removed in the morning, later that afternoon we were intimate, and he ejaculated in me the first time then! My last period date was 9/09- 9/12 or 9/13.
And he has ejaculated in me a few more times within the last two weeks.
Could our first time together after my IUD removal gotten me pregnant if possible?

There is possibility of pregnancy

Hi,

Yes. There is possibility of pregnancy looking at the dates you have mentioned.

First time together after IUD removal can make you pregnant.

Pregnancy possibilities exist in your situation.

So since my last period date on 9/09- 9/12 or 13th to the 24th Sept after my IUD removal in the morning and being Intimate with my boyfriend later that afternoon and him ejaculating in me. Up until today 10/09 if I am not having a period delay from my IUD removal, than I am pregnant!?
which means I can try to make sure with a home pregnancy test and know which result it is.
The next day which was on 9/25th I had a really high body temperature/body aches, from then on I had really bad cramping for no reason (I am guessing ), I felt tired all the time. And every time I overwork my body I felt nauseous. Did this had anything to do with my IUD removal or my possibly being pregnant?
I am really appreciating the time you are taking to help me.
Thank you so much.

Brief Answer:
Pregnancy test after one week

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

It is difficult to predict if delay i periods is due to IUD removal or due to Pregnancy as there is no periods in both situations.

Since your boyfriend has ejaculated multiple times after IUD removal pregnancy chances exist.

Home pregnancy test can be done after one week as it is early for it to show result.

It is possible to have cramps after IUD removal as uterus tries to adjust to new environment. The other symptoms you have mentioned are associated with it and will go away after next cycle if you are not pregnant. There is nothing to worry about it.

I will be glad to answer anymore queries you have.

Regards

Hello. I m 32 years old and had my 4th c-section in December 2013, when I was told that my bladder is stuck to my uterus. Since my period started on Wednesday I ve been having some pain on the left side of my lower abdomen and at times it is so severe I can t stand up straight. When the pain subsides it leaves the area feeling quite sore and tender to the touch. Could this pain be related to my adhesions? I ve run a pregnancy test and that is negative. My GP is treating me for a UTI as there were a few white blood cells in my urine. I ve not been feeling quite right since my surgery and my wound was infected for a while and had to be cauterised. I can t tell what s related to my body recovering from pregnancy/surgery, or whether something else is going on.

My sister just told me that she has a mass measuring 22mm on her uterus. She is an otherwise healthy female 32.5yrs old. About 5 5 and weighs about 155-160lbs. There is a family history on the Maternal side of fibroids and Uterine/ovarian cancer. Is there a correlation between the size and whether or not it is cancerous? Also there has been active bleeding and her doctor is calling for surgery to remove the mass. Obviously I am concerned especially since we do not live close.
