I was wondering if anyone had an IUD before getting pregnant and how long after removal did it take to conceive?
What type of IUD did you have? I think that changes things quite a bit. I have heard with the non-hormonal one you can get pregnant right away. I think with the hormonal one things can take a bit longer to get back to normal.
I had a copper IUD that I had removed on cycle day #3. Got pregnant later that same cycle.
I did a little reading and apparently the copper IUD is just like that. Your fertility isn't really affected. Some folks will of course take longer than IMMEDIATELY to get pregnant . . . but some folks just do, IUD or no IUD.
I think the hormonal IUD is different, though.
I just got my copper IUD removed and my doc said I was clear to try that month. As the PP said, the hormonal one is different, I think.

I would probably wait one cycle after getting the hormonal IUD out because it thins the uterine lining.

I got my copper IUD out about a year ago, and I conceived this April past (which was my first month trying, using barrier/FAM in the interim). I believe I was ovulating almost right away after having it removed, though.
