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??

It might take a while for you get pregnant after having your IUD removed, but don’t worry! There is no evidence to prove that IUD’s do anything to harm the ability to get pregnant. It sometimes just takes a while for a woman’s body to get back on track. So, make sure you know your fertile days, and try to schedule sex during those times for your best chances of conceiving. Stay positive and be patient, and you will be pregnant before you know it! Anyway, if you are trying to get pregnant, there's a lot of things that you can do to improve your chances of conceiving. I've bought the 'Getting Pregnant Plan by Michelle Adams e-book' from http://aboutgettingpregnant.com, it has a lot of information about boost your chances of conceiving, pinpoint your ovulation accurately, improve your fertility and pregnancy.

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.
