If you're one of the nearly six percent of American women on contraception who use the IUD (intrauterine device) Mirena or ParaGard, you might be wondering how can you get pregnant, and how soon can you get pregnant, after having the IUD removed. "As soon as the device is taken out by your doctor, you could become pregnant," says Hilda Hutcherson, M.D., clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Columbia University Medical Center, in New York City. Both Mirena and ParaGard work locally in the uterus to prevent sperm from swimming. ParaGard is made of a copper that creates a toxic environment for sperm in the uterus, and Mirena releases small and steady amounts of progestin that thickens the cervical mucous and thins the uterine lining. With ParaGard, because no hormones are involved, your body doesn't have to readjust -- once the ParaGard is out, sperm can swim normally again. With Mirena, the dose of progestin is so low and doesn't get absorbed into your system (like it does with the Pill or with the Depo shot), that it doesn't interfere with ovulation; once the Mirena IUD is out, you're good to go. If you don't get pregnant right away, don't panic -- it's not uncommon for women to try for several months, or even for a full year, even if they've never used an IUD. The good news is that studies show that eight out of ten women become pregnant within a year after having Mirena removed, and 43 percent of women become pregnant within three months of having ParaGard removed.

  1. I myself have dealt with infertility and my tremendous appreciation to Doctor Muna. I went straight to marvelspelltemple@g mail. com after three failed IUIs. I got pregnant on my first Enthusiastic infertility Spell done by Doctor Muna.

    It was over 16 years ago and I can tell not being able to conceive on my time table is still one of the most painful things of my life. I now have three beautiful children and Doctor Muna Infertility Spell have changed a lot over the last 22 years.

    However, I would expect anyone to make their pregnancy announcement about Doctor Muna Infertility Spell with my post, Even my best friends announced their pregnancies to me after fascinating Doctor Muna infertility spell. I can still remember each and everyone of them over the years we were trying to conceived. God has us all on a different journey and while I agree we need to love and be sensitive to one another, I totally disagree that we should ever make someones else’s joy about our pain. I have to chalk all this self focus up to a generational thing. This is my only explanation. I am a follower of Christ and i got to give what belongs to Cesar unto him to helped me conceived. We should weep with one another. If these are good friends of yours they should know about Doctor Muna Enthusiastic Infertility Spell period!! Their Pain should never be about your Joy!
