Will I conceive as I had unprotected sex after removal of IUD ?

I recently had my IUD removed and the same day I had it removed I got the depo shot... Ive read online that the shot should be given 5 days after you start your period. I wasnt given the shot at that time and now i would like to know could I become pregnant since my husband and I havent used condoms?

Hi ,
It takes approx 15 days for the Depo to be effective if taken on any day of the cycle but in your case you have taken the shot on the day of removal of IUCD so you needn't worry , the chances of pregnancy are very less so wait till next period but depo can cause amenorrhoea also so do a pregnancy test if you miss the period.

Hi, I have a question, I had the mirena iud in for 3.5 years. May 18 it came out, my husband and I have been actively trying to have another baby. A few months ago I met with my current ob and she told me when we were ready to come in have it removed. When my iud came out I didn t bleed or spot, is this normal? We started trying since it came out. I took 2 pregnancy tests and both were negative, could it be to early? I went through the mirena crash symptoms the week it came out.

I am 26 years old in the normal weight range, and am trying to get pregnant. I had my IUD removed on April 12th and my last 3 cycles have been 26 days, 34 days, and 35 days. I am currenly on day 44 with no period and have taken two pregnancy tests which were negative. Is this my body still adjusting after the IUD was taken out or do I need to see a doctor? I also feel that I have most if not all of the symptoms for hypopituitarism.

Can Paraguard IUD cause constipation ?
I have my second Paraguard IUD placed a year ago (the first one was displaced, so it had to be removed). After the placement of the second IUD I started experiencing bloating, constipation and my stools became hard and dry.
Can this be related to the Paraguard?

Thanks

I just got the Paragard taken out of me today.. I have PSVT and I just wanted to know if I will be ok? With them taking the Paragard out it will not bother my heart at all will it? I heard if you have Wolf Parkison White its not good to have had the Paragard in at all, but would it bother a person with PSVT? I have been having hot flashes all night long. It may be from my nerves (i have panic attacks from worrying a lot and stress bc of my heart problems), but I just want to make sure it's not from them taking the Paragard out of me earlier this afternoon? I am 23 years old..

I had my paragard removed feb 17 which should have been my ovulation day. I thought I started my period on march 2 which would have been on time, however it ended the next afternoon. Was this a real period and is this normal? Should I see a doctor or give it a month and see if it levels out?
