Pregnancy after iud removal

This may seem like a really stupid question but I recently had my iud removed (dec5,2011). I had sex the day before and the day of. Is it possible to still get pregnant from those days if semen stays in your body up to 5 days. I would be happy if I conceive but this is more so for my own knowledge.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The return of normal fertility can take few months to upto a year’s time after you stop with your birth control use. Sometimes it can return immediately after stopping with birth control use. Wait and watch for your periods. If periods after removal of IUD are regular, they would suggest periodic and regular ovulation (suggesting possible return of fertility). If you are planning for pregnancy, consider monitoring cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse for having fruitful results. Have intercourse in positions that allow for deeper penetration for high deposit of semen. Have diet with foods rich in zinc content to ensure better maturation of egg and sperms.
If you are not successful in your pregnancy plans in next 6 months to 1 year’s time (of stopping with your birth control use), you should consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for getting a complete infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get pregnant. Consider visiting your gynecologist/obstetrician for further evaluation and assistance and be in regular follow-up monitoring as instructed. All the best.
Take care.
