When would you test again?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

First of all, we're not really TRYING to conceive, as I have the copper IUD  (it would be a nice surprise but we're in no financial position for another baby right now) ...but I just have a suspicion, so I figured this would be the best place to ask smile.gif


My baby is going to be 11 months on Sunday but I never really got my period back after having him. I had something start on January 24th which I thought was my period but it turned out not to be much compared to what I was expecting as on the copper IUD, you're supposed to get the mother of all bleeding...  


Long story short, February 21 came and went, so I did a test on Sunday the 24th which came back neg. This morning I woke up to spotting and then nothing else (can it be implantation bleeding?)


I've been on some kind of hormonal birth control for almost all of my adult life so I really have no idea what my cycle is actually supposed to be (without any hormonal birth control) at this point. 


How long after this bleeding would you test?

The IUD is over 99% effective in preventing pregnancy. It would be quite unexpected if you are pregnant. While some women experience heavier periods/cramping, many women note spotting between periods, irregular periods or loss of periods all together. Good luck to you!

I have the mirena IUD. It was placed 5 months ago at my 6 week check. I have had cramping and spotting, so today I took a wondfo test, it has the slightest faint positive line. Will be seeing my doc tomorrow.

My coworker was either conceived with an IUD in place or her daughter was conceived while she had an IUD in place (I don't remember which).  If it's a true positive, remove it STAT!!!  Best wishes!

My beta levels were 6 "positive" Looks like I caught it at a very early stage of my pregnancy. I am really surprised that my wondfo tests showed positive at such a low level. I have always tested at 8-10 dpo and been able to see a faint line, but a level of 6 is very impressive. I highly recommend these tests to everyone. 


I go in Friday to have the IUD removed and the HCG levels checked again. Tubals are common with IUD's so I'm pretty nervous.

I have everything all sorted out now... I'm not sure if I should be relieved or disappointed shrug.gif
