Hello and welcome to e health forum.

It is common for women on intrauterine contraceptive devices, to have irregular periods for a few months, after the removal of the devices.

With regard to possibility of conception, many women can conceive, soon after IUD removal, in the immediate commencing cycle. But some women take a few months to conceive.

In case, you are trying to conceive and do not get your period as scheduled, you can do a home pregnancy test, 1 week after the missed period. This will very much confirm your pregnancy.
