BFP immediately after coil removal; concern

Hey. I got a conclusive digital Bfp today, so so so wanted and excited! this is our 3rd and last.

my last period was 5/7 and I took my coil out on the 18th. I think I ovulated on the 24th, due to CM and rampantness ;-)

I normally have a 34 day cycle. I have been having some pains and some cramping. I didn't have that with the DDS. Do i need to consider ectopic? My husband is pretty surprised it happened so quickly.

Are there any problems associated with having copper in my system without it having a 'flush out' first?

I had the same thing I'm now 13+2smile. The only issue I've had so far is dating the pregnancy. Congratulations thanks

A bfp is a bfp. You can't get half a one or a crap one from finishing your contraception. Its a pregnancy like any other, I don't think you need to worry. How long since your baby #2? Cramping and pains are totally normal, I'd be surprised if you didn't have them on your last pregnancies. Congrats!

I doubt there would be issues with copper. As long as there is no bleeding or awful pain i doubt ectopic would be a consideration. Congrats!

The issue with ecoptics is not the copper it's the physical coil itself. You had it out before ov so I can't imagine it could cause any problems smile

There is no issue with copper. It's not absorbed systemically and there's no flush out needed at all.

If you concieved whilst using the coil, you have a slightly higher risk of ectopic, but this drops on removal. Of course, any pregnancy can be ectopic - if your pain is severe, or you get fever and severe cramping, seek help.

Congrats smile
