Hi, I just recently had my IUD taken out on April 5th and had my period right after. I'm so worried bc the 11th I had intercourse w my fiancé for the first time since its been out. It is now may 7th an I have yet to have my period and a 4the negative pregnancy test, I have all the symptoms of a pregnancy:bloating,soreness in the breast, urinating frequently,headaches here an there, moody,etc. but I'm just afraid of a tubular pregnacy...... Can somebody please help?????? :)

I had an IUD for almost two years and got it taken out about 8 months ago.. it took 6 weeks to get my first period after having it taken out.. so I honestly wouldn't worry about it.. I got put on pills the same day I had the IUD out so I didn't worry at all.. but if you're really thinkin you're pregnant I would just go the doctor to be sure, but honestly it just sounds like a hormone imbalance that's just going to take some time to fix itself.

You would be very unlucky to be pregnant so quickly. Most of the time having an IUD taken out periods can take several months to come back to normal. Especially if it was a hormone coated IUD like Mirena. All the symptoms you are describing are also hormonal imbalance symptoms. If you are really concerned then make an appointment at the doctors and they can do an internal there and then. At five weeks your cervix is the size of an orange and is easily detected.
