My name is Josie Minks and I'm a labor and delivery nurse in Austin, Texas and I'm here to talk about how to get pregnant after an IUD. An IUD releases a hormone that makes it difficult for an embryo to attach to the lining of the uterus. So, those hormones, after you remove the IUD, the hormones need to clear the body so it's recommended that you wait at least one menstrual cycle for your body to return to normal, so you have a regular period and then it's often recommended that you wait three menstrual cycles before attempting to conceive so that your body clears that hormone and you're able to conceive and that the embryo can attach to the lining of the uterus and you'll be pregnant. And this is how long you should wait before attempting to conceive after having an IUD.
