Hi all! I am getting my copper iud removed in 1 month and I have a few questions:

- How long before I have it removed should we abstain from having unprotected sex? (we want to wait a few cycles before TTC)

- Does it hurt?

- Did you experienced any complications?

- How long did you wait before TTC?

- How long did it take you to conceive?

Thanks in advance!

Once removed, you are fertile. There are no hormones to regulate after removing the copper IUD. You should use some sort of birth control the same day if you are trying to avoid pregnancy for a few months. I became pregnant right away after having mine removed several years ago....the same month (chemical pregnancy) and then the very next month. (was lost at 9wks). I had no complications at all, just bad luck with the m/c's. I did go on to have 3 babys since then, and one on the way. Good luck!
