I was told to expect one after getting it removed (and I was kind of wanting one since it's been 18 mo!). I know that the MW really has no idea what my body will do when the IUD is removed, but she said the vast majority of her clients get AF within a week. It's been 18 days and no AF.

Could BFing my 22 mo old be interfering? I started drinking RRL tea to help get my uterus in shape before getting pregnant. Is there anything I can do to encourage AF?

Did anyone else not get a period after having it removed?

Thanks!

Since I had no side effects with the iud it was easy to forget there were hormones in it. Thanks for reccomending that thread, Spark. I'll check it out.

I was hopeful fertility would come back sooner rather than later, but I knew it wouldn't be immediate. I did expect some bleeding right away though. I keep having my usual pre-period backpain, but it only lasts for 30 min then nothing. I hope this adjustment period is short.

Thanks for your help ladies!
