cheesecake2017 :  You might as well test. If it’s negative, test weekly until AF shows or you get a positive.  It can take awhile for your body to respond/regulate to the removal of birth control, though… just keep that in mind.

Yea physical or emotional stress can delay ovulation so the fact that it was expelling could have delayed your fertile window a few days too. But, never hurts to test!

I have copper IUD, and it shifted slightly and delayed my ovulation about 2 weeks. My ob/gyn indicated that placement doesn’t especially influence effectiveness for a copper IUD, so I wouldn’t expect pregnancy as a likely outcome here. You could definitely test though if it would give you peace of mind.
