Got the IUD out nov16 & I just had unprotected sex today will I get pregnant? & how long will it take for me to take a pregnancy test?

Got the IUD out nov16 & I just had unprotected sex today will I get pregnant? & how long will it take for me to take a pregnancy test?

See below: You could get pregnant from the sex, if you ovulate within 4-5 days after the sex. You may do a blood test for HCG in about three weeks. Better would be to do a home pregnancy test if you miss your period by 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Its been 39 days since my last period I removed my IUD may 5th had a 5day period pregnancy test show negative should I wait. Also does fertleaid work?

Its been 39 days since my last period I removed my IUD may 5th had a 5day period pregnancy test show negative should I wait. Also does fertleaid work?

Not unusual: Sometimes, especially if you had the Mirena, (levonorgestrel) it takes a few months for your periods to become regular again. This isn't terribly unusual, but you may need to take a pregnancy test every 30 days or so that goes by without bleeding if you aren't using protection. Yes, FertileAid does work, that's how I got pregnant!! ...Read more

I removed my IUD paraguard on my ovulation day which was on 7/18/13 i got a positive pregnancy test on 8/5/13 how far along am i ?

I removed my IUD paraguard  on my ovulation day which was  on 7/18/13  i got a positive pregnancy test on 8/5/13 how far along am i ?

5 weeks: You could have conceived as soon as you removed iud. Even so, you would only be about 5 weeks along, meaning that you've been pregnant for about 3 weeks. As you know, pregnancies are dated from last menstrual period, not ovulation or conception. Likely in 2-3 weeks you should be able to see a heart beat on ultrasound. Hope that helps! ...Read more

What are the odds of getting pregnant with the IUD mirena (levonorgestrel) i took a pregnancy test and it came out positive twice. What should I do?

See a GYN MD now: Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud's, like all iud's, prevent pregnancies by preventing implantation of a already fertilized egg into the lining of the uterus.(endometrium) two positive tests indicate that you are pregnant, but the question is where?.. The uterus or elsewhere.(tube) see a md to sort this out as tubal pregnancies are common when iud's fail. ...Read more
