Hello everyone, ok here's the scoop. I had my iud removed march 24th after having it in for 5 months. I had it removed because I wasnt getting a period the whole time and I decided to get on the pill to regulate them. After the removal I had heavy bleeding for about 8 days. I had unprotected sex after. Around the 7th of April I started to get really bad cramps like I normally would and then immediately following my period would show. I thought i was just getting my period early. But no period (My periods were very regular before i got pregnant with my first). I took a urine test April 12th to see if I was pregnant but it came back negative. The nurse told me it could of been too early. I havent yet gone back to take another test bc of ride situation. But my question is..could i be pregnant this soon after removal? Thank You for neone's help

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your normal fertility can return back to normal after stopping with birth control use within 1 month also (depending on duration of the birth control use and how your body gets readjusted to normalcy). Your symptoms could be suggestive of pregnancy. Urine pregnancy tests usually start showing positive results after about 1 week of missing periods and can also keep showing you false negative results at times. Urine pregnancy test kits are calibrated ones, so they show positive results only after the hormonal levels in urine have reached a certain level. Blood/serum HCG level estimation is accurate and can detect pregnancy accurately earlier than urine pregnancy tests (at about 11 days post conception). If you suspect to be pregnant, consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for examination and blood/serum HCG level test to confirm/rule out pregnancy.
Take care.
