I'm having mine removed on Monday.
I have no idea how long before a period or for cycles to go back to normal.

Anyone conceived quickly after having one removed?

Hi tugamommy - i had one removed and was told by my gp that i could conceive immediately! You don't have to wait for your cycles to restart. I didn't get pregnant immediately, but that was cos DH didn't want to start for #2 then...

Hi there.

I had mine removed on 22 Sept. My GP told me to wait a cycle beofre I TTC.

Period started on 26 Sept and lasted a week and had a cycle of 32 days. Then tried but no luck but DH reckoned there would still be drugs in my system, but on cycle 2 which started on Oct 30 and have just discovered I'm PG so yes - it goes back to normal pretty quick!

Good luck smile

I've been reading up on conception after coils. But anyway yes most of the literature says you can start right away.

sunshineday it doesn't really hurt just a bit of a quick cramp! Take a couple of paracetamol about an hour before you go and that really helps.

I've had coils for a few years so have gone through it a few times. To be honest it's not nearly as bad as a smear.

Last time I had the copper coil removed I was pregnant within 3 weeks and this time, with the Mirena, as I posted before, within 6 weeks so good luck everyone smile

I just had mine removed yesterday. It didn't hurt at all! It was indeed not nearly as bad as a smear!

The nurse told me that since my cycles are usually long and a bit irregular I could have to wait up to 3 months for a period to come back.... sad. I'm quite confident that it will be a lot quicker than that though!

Noodle: does that mean that the first time you didn't even had a period? Or did you have one straight away and then got pregnant? As far as I uinderstand you must ovulate first to have a bleed, right?

I also had mine removed yesterday, and apparently you can get pregnant without ever experiencing a bleed as ovulation occurs first. In any case, I'm planning to conceive early next year, I already have 2 children from a previous marriage and my partner has no children. I am 38, and so have some obstacles to get over so am sure I will be feeling the pressure soon! My coil was in for about 5 years.

after 8 months of quite regular cycles, we have conceived - most of the delay according to my GP is my age - 40 next year. Good luck to all those trying
