Ovulation and Ovaries Answer A22811

Welcome to ehealthforum

You seem to be very anxious and under lot of stress.Since every woman is different the time taken to start the normal ovulation and restore fertility differs in individual.It can vary from minimum 3 months to a year to have the periods.Periods are indicative of ovulation being started.As the implant prevents ovulation by causing alterations in the hormonal levels, after removing it body takes time to get adjusted to the normal hormonal levels.It only causes temporary infertility which is reversible.
Relax yourself as so much of stress can disrupt the hormones again.Give few months to your body to get back to normal hormonal state as you got the implant removed recently and then consider visiting your Gynaecologist for evaluation.
