Hello.: Hello. These issues can impact fertility. However, if the iud was just removed, this means that you have not been working very long to become pregnant (and the iud can have an impact as well). It is too early to say you are not fertile. Infertility is defined as not achieving pregnancy after 12 months of having fairly frequent, unprotected sex (or after at least 6 months if over age 35). Suggest that you talk with your doctor about how these issues could impact your desire to become pregnant. Take care. ...Read more
