If she had sex a week ago and she has iud (copper iud) and she was ovulating. What are the chances of get pregnant? I know the iud is 99% effective

Very low: As you mentioned, the copper IUD is an effective product with about 1% risk of pregnancy in any year of use. Compared to all other forms of birth control the only one better is abstinence. Use of any secondary form like condoms can reduce the risk of STD's but adds little to the BC effect. ...Read more

Pregnancy with IUD: Sounds like you both are not on the same page. I recommend that you see a marriage counselor to resolve this because no matter what happens one of you will resent the other (more). Pregnancy can happen after 5 years but sometimes the presence of the IUD, no matter how old, can prevent pregnancy. If she were to conceive, IUD removal can cause a miscarriage. ...Read more

What's your chances of getting pregnant if you have had the marina IUD for a little over 6 years?

Low, but a big risk: The Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD should be removed after five years if used for contraception. It probably lasts significantly longer than 5 years, but YOU SHOULD NOT RELY ON IT ANY LONGER, and use alternate (backup) birth control until you can have it removed. Pregnancies that occur with the IUD in place can be very problematic. It is NOT worth the risk. ...Read more

The : The largest studies (cochrane database) do not show convincing evidence that acupuncture helps with conception, but it wouldn't cause any harm to perform. After an iud is removed, it can take a while for a patient to start ovulating again. After intercourse, stay in bed for approximately 15 minutes on your back with your knees bent up to your chest to help retain the sperm. Be sure you are eating healthy and at a healthy weight (not too high or too low). If you don't conceive in several months, you may need to see a fertility specialist. ...Read more
