  • I had to have surgery after mine was taken out because it gave me polyps on my uterus. That was in aug and I just found out I'm 5 weeks prego. I think you just have to listen to your body and talk to your doc.

  • I had mine removed because of a 20 lb weight gain :( I'm just devastated now cause I have been struggling with weight gain since I had my 5 year old and have decided that condoms are my new best friends. lol

  • It's not supposed to affect your ability to get pregnant after having it removed. I know a few people who have had them removed because of "problems" (in quotations because one of those problems was a ten lb weight gain) and two of them have had children since. I've had mine for almost 2 years and have not had the first issue.
