I had IUD from Nov. '08- April '11. My husband and I have been ttc since then and nadda....
I'm really getting discouraged. Really need help on this. Has anyone else had this same issue after having it removed? I was told after removal you can get pregnant any time after. But we've been actively trying and nothing....
We have a almost 3 year old child and was not a problem ttc with him, it happened soon after we ttc..

I don't have any experience w/ IUDs. Maybe your body is taking a little longer than usual to get back to normal?
Do you chart? Maybe you can take your charts in to your doctor and see if he/she has any suggestions....

Hi, I'm also in my fifth month of ttc but for my first. I've heard that even when you're doing everything right, timing BDing right, charting, etc there's still a 20-25% chance of getting pregnant. Also, only 60% of people ttc are pregnant after ttc for 6 months; and it's 80% at a year. It's discouraging and emotionally wrenching but, for me at least, it's comforting to know that it might not be a "problem". Good luck and may you get pg soon.
