I've taken my IUD out Dec 19th 2014, spotted for two days! Can I be pregnant if I haven't gotten my period for Over a little a month now?

My tracking calendar tells me that I'm suppose to get my period starting today but I have got my period yet. Is it possible that removing my IUD is messing up my period cycles?

Hi Anonymous,

It is quite possible. Do check with your gynecologist.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for seeking our help with your concern.

Did you call your gynecologist's office to report the spotting? Have you been using another form of birth control since the removal of your IUD?

Take a home pregnancy test. For the most accurate result, check the expiration date on the package, buy a name brand product, read and follow the directions carefully, and test using the first urine of the morning.

Depending on the results, consult your gynecologist.

I took birth control pills for about 3 days and I stopped because my fiancee and I, we're trying to get pregnant. So yes we take a couple of home pregnancy tests and it keeps on saying negative. Now we're waiting for my period to come threw but it's not coming... So we don't know what to do. Is there any ways that we could get pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for getting back to me. Since you are trying to conceive and have not gotten a period, do call your gynecologist's office. A blood pregnancy test can be done and it is more accurate than a urine test. Your doctor can evaluate you and determine why you have not gotten your period.
