Does an IUD make it harder to get prego again?

DH and I are thinking of having number two, but I've had an IUD for a year and a half, I have heard this will make it hard to concieve...is this true? How long did it take others with an IUD to concieve after taking it out?

  • I have never had one but I am an IUD baby. My mom got pregnant with her IUD in. For her it wasn't a problem.

  • As IUD can cause scarring which might make getting pregnant a harder than if you never had one. But many moms have gotten pregnant after having an IUD. I'm sure you'll have great success!

  • once it is out, it is only harder if you have scarring .If you have scarring someone messed up either putting it in or taking it out.If it releases hormones then it may take a couple months or longer to get yourself regular again.No worries mommy!
