Iud removal

Questions and answers on "Iud removal"

*I had copper IUD for almost 5 yrs. I am 29 yrs and hv a 5 yr old girl. My husband nd I are planning for the 2nd baby nd so i had the iud removed on jan 5th. That month my menstrual cycle was 28 days and 24 days cycle in feb. March 1st i had my periods again nd hoping my ovulation would b around 14, we tried for a week around that time. In two weeks time i started getting occasional abdominal cramps on both sides, headache for almost three days nd stiff back and hip pain in the mornings. All this happened for a week. I hoped i was pregnant..but on 28th and 29th of march i had brown spotting, followed by two days of brown and red medium bleeding, and a day of brown spotting. On 3rd of april i did a home preg test and it turned negative. So i concluded my bleeding was indeed menstrual bleeding. However my husband says my areolas are either becoming bigger or darker. Also nipples are almost always taut. I dont have any other symptoms of pregnancy, although rare abdominal cramps occur. Could i still b pregnant?*

Hi,
Thanks for the query.
After removal of intrauterine device it will take some time for regularization of the periods.
So it is difficult to comment about the menstrual flow.
You once go for blood test for pregnancy as that can give more accurate result compared with urine test.
If the test...

Hello Im 25 years old with three children very healthy never any medical issues in the past, always have had a normal cycle. Well I just had my Copper IUD removed on March 12th and was due for my period on the 22nd. I have been feeling hungry all the time, my breast are swallon and very sensitve, extremly tierd all the time, moody one minute than fine the next, havnt spotted any, have these minor headaches , no cramping yet though. Me and my husband have unprotected sex just about every other day. I have already taken two pregancy test and both came out negitive, thought it might be a little too early. My question is, could there be a high chance that I am pregnant? And if so how could I be pregnant when my ovulation date was on the 8th and I still had my IUD in at that time.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.
As the pregnancy tests are negative, you need not worry about pregnancy, still if you want to exclude the pregnancy, you can have blood for H.C.G.test, or U.S.scaning with full bladder.
After the removal of the I.U.D. due to...

Hello, I had had copped IUD (Multiload - T) for 6 months (after resection of subseptus surgery). It has been 3 cycles, it was removed and two last cycles I have had very light and short periods (only 2 days bleeding and about 1 day spotting). When having IUD, my periods very heavier and longer (which is no suprprise with IUD) but even before IUD my periods very heavier and longer than these two last cycles. Is that normal??? My doctor removed IUD a week after my period - not during my period...Could there be some adhesions/ scar tissues after IUD removal that cause that my periods are so light??? Thanks for reply!

I had an IUD (5yr plan Birth Control ) implanted for about 6 months, it was bothering me so I recently had it removed on the 24th Sept. My boyfriend and I were intimate on the same day, he ejaculated in me. I think I'm ovulating today the 28 Sept. My last day of my period was either on the 12th or the 13th of Sept. I am wondering if I will end up pregnant or not at all. Him and I talked about it, and we want to go through with this, so I didn't take the Plan B the next day.

Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Since your bleeding was light while the IUD was in place for a year, and only one week has passed, I don't think this bleeding is because of a period. it is to soon for IUD effect to be reversed. I think it's time to talk to the clinic who provided the...
