Need opinions, personal experiences.

Got my IUD removed over six weeks ago. About four days after removal I had a what seemed to be a very heavy period for 4 days doctor said it was normal. Fast forward to the present and I have no period yet. For the last two weeks I've had horrible migraines, tender/painful breasts, lower back pain, on/off cramping, excessive tiredness. No period. Pregnancy test say negative. Could I be pregnant or just having symptoms of period with no period? How long after your IUD removal did you become pregnant. Negative test are making me sad :/

then the odds of a pregnancy are less than if it had not had hormones. Your body changes may be due to the dropping progesterone level. If you are pregnant, you'll be testing positive in a week or so. If not, and I know it is disappointing, but you just started trying. It can take a couple up to a year to conceive. give yourself a few months and then talk it over with your doctor.

You could just be too early to have a positive test? Did your IUD have a hormonal component or was it strictly a mechanical IUD?
