No problem: The iud should pose no additional problem in conceiving. There's only one birth control method that has been shown to prolong infertility and that's the depot Provera shot. As soon as the iud is removed, you should be good to try. The Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud does cause some thinning of the uterine lining, but a cycle or two and your lining will be perfect. ...Read more

No way to know: I think you are asking about the chances of getting pregnant when you are trying, correct? If you have penile-vaginal intercourse (without birth control), there is always a chance of getting pregnant. What percent of chance depends on a lot of different factors. If you are trying for over a year without getting pregnant, you should see your doctor. ...Read more

I am 22 year old male I have never wet the bed in my entire life but the past 2 months I have done it 2 times and didn't feel it either time any answer?

Meds or alcohol?: I see that you're on klonopin, xanax, (alprazolam) and Remeron -- all of which can be sedating. If taking all at once, more so. Some people may be so sedated they wet the bed. If drinking alcohol also, this could increase likelihood. Hoping you discuss all of these possibilities with your physician, and soon, be well, . ...Read more

Use time-out: Time-out is a safe, effective way to ignore behaviors, which makes them go away.1-2-3 magic & " little people" teach you how to do "walk, don't talk" time-out effectively. Behaviors get worse before they go away, as a test to see if he can get you to engage. Crying does no psychological harm. Praise him often for behaviors you want. Scolding/arguing reinforce behaviors & can hurt his feelings. ...Read more

Give it 2 years: Wounds increase in collagen for 6 weeks following injury and thereafter enter into into the maturation phase when wounds subside and generally decrease in appearance. Topical silicone sheeting and avoidance of sun exposure may help to expedite the phase and improve scar appearance. While 90% of this process is completed by 3 months, with a good estimate of the final appearance, it may take 2 years. ...Read more

Unfortunately, : Unfortunately, genetic testing can take a little time - in some cases up to six weeks depending on the hospital or lab that is running the test. For a more accurate answer, you should call the doctor that sent the test. If they have experience with the genetic testing lab and this particular test, they can give you a better (and possibly shorter!) idea of how long it will take. Good luck to you! ...Read more
