I'm new here.. My first month TTC #2, hoping for a girl this time!
Anyway, just had my paragard removed little over a week ago. My cycles have been 23-27 days, last two were both 23 days and I can usually tell I O (cramps and loads of EWCM) around day 9. I'm on day 11 now and have some stretchy EWCM but not nearly the amount I usually see, no cramping.. I'm wondering if maybe my cycle will change after paragard removal, even though it is non-hormonal? My CP is med-high, soft and open, but CM isn't giving me clues. We have BD Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday (CD ,5, 8, 9, 10) Of course I didn't want to wait to start trying because my superstitions lol.. Chinese gender chart says this month would result in girl
sounds like the start of O. Your cycle might change a bit from getting the IUD removed so it might have just pushed O back a little further. I get serious O pains too so I always know when I O. Just keep listening to your body and watch for the signs you know. And like tigg said using OPk's will help.
Thanks! I am going out for OPK's after I pick up my niece from school today. If AF shows when she's due on the 3rd, I'll start temping and OPK regularly. Getting my IUD removed was a spur of the moment decision, so I wasn't quite prepared yet lol. I'm thinking O will end up being 2-3 days later than last 2 months, so probably happening on Wednesday or Thursday.. we'll see what OPK has to say about that!
Thanks Mrs.MCH! I ran out today and bought a BBT, OPK's and HPT's. I did OPK around 4pm pacific time, totally stark white and obviously negative sooo I'm thinking it's not quite yet. I'm predicting Wednesday.. FF chart is showing O predicted 3 days, Tuesday, Wed, or Thurs and AF predicted 2nd, 3rd or 4th. I'll test again tomorrow and see what it says.
i got my paraguard IUD removed june 14, ovulated a week later (right on schedule) and got my BFP 2 weeks later! unfortunately i lost that baby but i think the IUD removal should not have any effect at all. Good luck!!
Thank you aStarIsBorn! I had a paragard removed once before and it royally messed with me lol. I had 21 days of bleeding, (before removal) my OB did a blood test to see if it was a miscarriage but no explanation for that. It stopped after removal and I ended up getting another placed and haven't had problems with it the second time around. So sorry for your loss as well!
This morning I checked CP was suuuuper high, but NO CM at all really.. def no EWCM so I'm going to OPK later on and see what's up. Of course I couldn't expect my cycle to stay the same as it has been for 4 years lol. Of course.
Just wanted to say I am in a similar position as you. I had my IUD removed last monday (Nova T it is also a copper IUD). AF was weird right after removal and I have been cramping. Hopefully our bodies are simply adjusting to having the IUD's taken out.
Thanks meld10! I had a totally normal AF and had IUD removed the last day of bleeding. From my chart it looks like I ovulated last Wednesday or maybe Thursday, I had positive OPK both days. I have heard copper IUD's are much easier to adjust back to your cycle and this one has been a little longer but no major changes otherwise. Good luck and baby dust to you!!
