My Copper coil is coming out today! Wondering how long it took for you to conceive after removal? Does it take a while for the copper to clear the system? Cycles to get back to normal?

I had my copper coil out at the beginning of last August. Baby should be here by the end of this one smile, so about 3 / 4 months.
I know it varies for everyone, but thought you'd like a positive story.

And the coil hurt much less on the way out than in!

And good luck flowers

Unintentionally whilst it was still in..

5 months (I'm ancient though)

You can technically conceive immediately smile

I had a mirena, a friend had the copper coil and we both had them removed within a few weeks of each other. Both over 35, she was pregnant within a few weeks and I was within a few months, so nothing out of what you'd expect for our ages.

As frolic acid says, they're a doddle to get out as well (after some initial rummaging to get a grip on the strings, painless though.)

Thanks all! Really reassuring to hear smile

About three weeks grin - had it removed on the first day of my period and conceived when I ovulated that cycle.

Had one period then I got pregnant grin

6 months! I was a smoker however and that does affect your fertility.

4 cycles smile

About 4 weeks: had it removed 1DPO, but was too late for that cycle. Pg on the next one (first official TTC cycle).

Good luck!

I had one period and conceived at next ovulation, both times. i feel very lucky but I guess it is one of the benefits of this coil. First time gp suggested I wait until after the bleed to try, second time GP said try straight away, don't worry. So you may want to seek advice on that. Good luck!

1st cycle, so 2 weeks.

All the best OP ! X

One cycle!

elpth Wed 29-Jul-15 18:51:50

11 months but I was also breast feeding and didn't get pregnant until I completely stopped breast feeding. Then it was first cycle.

5 months here too . Although dh was away for work during that period so we must have missed some cycles .

Pugmumlondon Wed 29-Jul-15 22:21:36

3 months - 1 cycle! Mirena removed in February (after nearly ten years - x2 coils) and bfp in May. Due jan 16. I have pcos and have suffered with horrendous periods, was always told I would probably need help to conceive. I'm 31.

Although everyone is different the miracle stories of conceiving super quickly after removal are reality! Good luck!

SaulGood Wed 29-Jul-15 22:24:36

Immediately. Had it removed, ovulated a week later and conceived. Only had sex on the day of ovulation too smile

Theoretically, once the coil is removed you should go back to normal.

Sorry, I don't want to hijack this thread but, has anyone had to have a telephone appointment with a doctor before getting the official removal appointment? I rang my doctors last week to make an appointment to get the more a removed and they said I needed to speak with the doctor first, and the earliest they had for that is the 18th Aug!! Hoping I can get it out within a week of speaking with the doc! Any help?

NotSoYummyMummy23 Wed 29-Jul-15 22:57:16

*Mirena coil removed

luna40 Thu 30-Jul-15 07:21:11

NotSo yes I was also told I needed to speak with a GP first before booking a removal appt with the nurse. I lied and said I had. Well white lie, because when I got it in 10 months ago I spoke with a GP first, and said we would be trying for another eventually blah blah blah.
I just didn't want to wait the 4 weeks for a GP appt, then another 4 weeks to make the appt with the coil nurse (waiting periods here are horrendous)

Thanks all for reassuring responses! Hopefully it happens just as quick for us ;)

NotSoYummyMummy23 Thu 30-Jul-15 08:33:01

Oh no, i better not have a 4 week wait until I can get the thing out!! I wasn't warned of this phone appointment at all. Even when I queried with the receptionist about the removal, she didn't say anything! Very annoyed!!!
I hope you're not ttc for too long!! smile

nightandthelight Thu 30-Jul-15 08:45:50

I couldn't get a quick appt with my GP so just popped into the sexual health clinic and had it removed straight away smile

NotSoYummyMummy23 Thu 30-Jul-15 09:19:51

Perfect, thanks night! I will definitely be doing that!!!
