A year?! That’s a crazy long time. I don’t know anything about IUD’s though.

ETA- considering my Mother-In-Law got pregnant with my Brother-In-Law with one IN, as long as it’s out I don’t see an issue?

My OBGYN said it was best to wait a few cycles to see how your body reacts to being off the pill and learn what your natural cycles are so you can properly time ovulation. This was her advice from going off the pill though, the IUD maybe different but I thought I’d share what I’ve heard. A year seems excessive to me though.

There’s no time you have to wait to get pregnant after getting an IUD out – unless there’s some other medical reason she/he suggested that? I agree with @Future_Ms.Bostonceltics about being able to track your cycles/ovulation and actively trying to time intercourse to get pregnanct, but you CAN get pregnant right away without any danger to baby or yourself.

@bamagirl08:  You can get pregnant before you have a period because you do ovulate before you have a period. Getting pregnant after an IUD won’t increase your risk of miscarriage – just like getting pregnant while on the pill won’t increase your risk of miscarriage. Your friend could have miscarried for any number of reasons.

I would definitely wait a few cycles so you can track how regular/how many days in between. One is the ways that they determine conception/due date is by the start of your last cycle so if you haven’t had a period it obviously makes this more difficult. It also gives your body a chance to adjust prior to conception. I would suggest to start taking vitamins…folic acid specifically since it is very important in the first four weeks of pregnancy more than the rest of the pregnancy.

On a personal note, I have 2 summer babies…that’s the way it worked out since I carry over term. If I was planning I would definitely wait so I would NOT be in my final trimester through the summer. Pregnancy creates enough hormonal imbalances without adding the heat of summer into the mix! And nursing in the summer when your breasts are full and it’s hot and sweaty is just not fun.

Darling Husband and I planned it so that we wouldn’t have a newborn or very young baby in flu season! I wanted to do this because I was born in mid flu season, early Feb, and I hate it! I def. want our baby’s immune system to be a little stronger before all the major flu and colds hit. Also, I didn’t want to be huge pregnant come July or August- so we’re having a June baby. I agree I can’t imagine anything more miserable than being pregnant in the high heat of late summer. D: ick!
