Could I be pregnant?

Hi, can anyone help..., I had the Merina coil fitted on 10th Aug, and had it removed last Thursday 9th Sept as I was having a bleed (which I believe was my period) and excrutiating cramps. I then had unprotected sex on Sat 11th Sept and am wondering could I get pregant as the coil was removed, but yet I was having a bleed?? Any ideas? I'd appreciated any help.., thanks!

If you had sex without using contraception you could be pregnant. It's not rocket science Wink

TBH it's unlikely, but all you can do is wait at least 14 days (preferably a bit longer) and do a test.

I hope you get the result you want.

Thanks Fermina...., stupid of me I know (in the heat of the moment)..., easy to say in hindsight...! Though I am hoping to get pregnant quite quickly, so I suppose the best way would be too keep having intercourse and hopefully I'll have the positive result I want soon..., thanks! :)

Has anyone else got pregant so soon after removal of the coil??? I'd appreciate any positive comments..., thank you :)

I don't think the coil has any effect at all after it's taken out - I got pregnant the month after I'd had mine removed (although copper not mirena).

Really?! Well that's good to know..., thanks :)
