When I was REALLY young (13) my OB diagnosed my with hyper-ovulation, r, the release of multiple eggs per cycle.
Five years later, baby girl was concieved with perfect use of the pill, condoms, AND sperimicide.
The only option (that I could see) was a copper IUD.
I got it implanted 10 weeks postpartum, baby girl is now 7 months old, and I am now VERY afraid that I have been pregnant 2+ times, and that the IUD has rid me of the implantation. I actually had positive pregnancy tests (light) but I chalked it up to bad tests and got my period a week later.
To add to my paranoia, I have been having one-sided cramping, for three days now. (I am not ovulating.)
Does anyone have ANY more information on hyper-ovulation and the IUD? My OB didn't think it was contra-indicated, but, then, it isn't really considered a fertility 'disorder,' since infertility is (usually) more debilitating.
I can't find any information on hyper-ovulation, beyond the basics. Was I pregnant? Does the IUD need to come out now? I'm off to look up ectopic pregnancy.
