IUD Removal and Pregnancy

I'm 28 years old and just married. My husband and I would like to wait a few years before having children, but are concerned about the long-term effects of birth control pills. We're considering an intrauterine device (IUD), because we've read that it is the most easily reversible form of birth control. How long after stopping the IUD will I be able to conceive?

Answer

In studies, about 80 percent of women wishing to become pregnant after having the Mirena® IUD removed became pregnant. For Skyla™, 77 percent of women wishing to conceive did so within one year of the IUD removal. For ParaGard®, studies showed that 43 percent of women wanting to conceive got pregnant within three months of removing the IUD. With either type, you may begin trying to get pregnant as soon as the IUD is removed without any waiting period.
