I just had my iud removed two days ago after having it in for 1 1/2 years. How long should Hubby and I wait to start TTC? My son is almost 6 and my daughter is 17 months. We want to get pregnant between August and November...any suggestions??

I had my Mirena removed 12/1 and immediately started TTC. Last period was on 12/2 and nothing since. Multiple negative HPT and a negative blood test about 3 weeks ago, also no "pregnancy" symptoms. Called my doctor and was told to do an ultrasound and a second blood test. It was negative. I was so devastated. And then I was browsing on the internet and found this book from http://pregnancyhours.com, I thought I have nothing to lose to try it. 3 months after that I got BFP and we're happy knowing that I'm pregnant!

I had mine removed in August of last year. In October, we got pregnant. I'm due in July, and everything is going great. One to two cycles is what they suggested for a 'waiting period' before trying. Good luck!

I had my IUD removed in sept this year after having it for a little over a year and half it took one month for my cycle to come back. It took us a few months to get pregnant because my husband travels with work. But i once your cycle comes back i would get the Ovulation tests and due it this month and next month and start trying in the month of july just to get the flow of things going again hope that helps you. Also since you dont want that month really bad it might happen.... the months we were trying were the months we really wanted and the next month we were just going about without stress because we didnt want a november baby because my husband is a big hunter and guess what I GOT PREGNANT and Im due NOVEMBER gotta love how those things happen :)

Youre cycle can take 6 months to a year to become regular again after an IUD. Up to two years in some women (typically those had it in for the full 5 years) I have to agree with Jane. Have a cycle or two, record it in a calendar, so you know approx when to start testing with those strips because they get very expensive after awhile.

just wait for a few cycles and go for it in August! pick up a pack of Ovulation tests are Target or Walmart so you can figure out your new cycle, they come in a 7-pack. start using them 14 days after the first day of your period and if the stick gives you two lines, you're ovulating.
