There are a lot of factors in this but I need some piece of mind. I believe the first day of my last period was Sept 5. I ended up having sex twice in the really early morning of Sept. 21. I then had my Styla removed on the morning of the 22nd. It’s only been a few days but I’ve been really tired, have no appetite, started having slight stomach cramps and lower back pain this morning. I don’t get cramps during my periods. I only bleed for a few days so this isn’t normal for me. Is it possible I’m pregnant? When is the best time to take a pregnancy test? Thank you for your help!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
You had sex while you were on IUD.Later it was removed.This means you have no risk of getting pregnant from that exposure.All theses symptoms are due to removal of IUD and will be lessened soon.Do not worry but avail some alternative contraceptive devices.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
