I had my IUD removed 10/5/07 after 2 1/2 years with little side effects. I started to feel like my period was coming by that night and then started it by noon the next day. I did not even realize it had started. It cont really light for 6 days. I don't think I could have used up a lite tampon or pad (if you could keep one in that long). Talk about a PMS crash!! I was the last person you wanted to piss off last week. Other then that, It was great.
My question is: Do I count my period as starting on 10/5, the day I got it removed. Or 10/6- the day I started to spot.
I am TTC. I have always had no problem in the past. Even got pregnant when I was 17 on Depo. I had sex last night and did not get up to do anything to allow those little guys to swim up there and give them a better chance. on Fertilityfriends.com it says that my "Fertile days" are the 15th, 16th, and 17th and ovulation is due on the 18th. But if my period did not start till the 6th then it pushes it all back a day and I don't know if last night will have done anything. I just want this baby more then my DH and he making it hard on me. I know it will be just fine once Im pregnant and I have two kids already so adding another one is not a huge new event in our life.
My period started within a day of having the mirena removed. I didn't know if it was my period at the time, but I'm pretty sure it was. I bled heaps though, to the point that I had to get provera to stop the bleeding. I conceived only a few days later....less than a week after I had mirena removed. A pregnancy test was positive almost 2 weeks later, but then I started bleeding again (my period???) and today the pregnancy test was negative. Alot of pregnancies can end in the first few weeks without the woman even knowing she's pregnant. A doctor told me that after mirena the lining of the uterus would probably not be able to hold a growing embryo for a while. So please, please don't do a pregnancy test until AFTER you think your period would have been due. Although having a baby would not be the best thing for me right now, I was so so so disappointed when I started bleeding, then again today after getting a negative test result. If you really want a baby that badly you should probably wait until you have had at least one normal period. I'd hate anyone to go through what I went through, especially when you want it so badly.
I don't know for sure but I think sperm can live inside the body for up to 3 days. Outside of the body they die pretty quickly.
Good luck with everything!
Ok, You count cycle day one as the first day u saw blood. A typical woman ovulates 14 days after that day BUT NOT ALL women do so there is still a chance for you. Sperm can live in you for up to 5 days.
