  • It took me over 8 months after getting my IUD removed to get pregnant. It seemed like it took at least six for my cycle to normalize. Patience :)

  • From what I understand, you are suppossed to have the IUD in for 8 months to a year and then taken out for you to have a 80% chance to get pregnant. I would get the IUD put back in and wait. Then take it out after then and Im almost positive you will get pregnant. Good Luck!

  • And even a healthy couple can take up to a year and a half to conceive. It's not going to be instantaneous.

  • It may take time to get pregnant. That's just what happens with any form of bc. It's a hit or miss, you can get preggo immediately or it can take a while.

  • You have to get back to a regular period first. From there, it could take up to a year to get pregnant. It's hard, but have patience!

  • I heard it can take up to a year after stopping any kind of birth control. Don't give up, you'll conceive soon enough.
