I just had my IUD removed in December and I went through the same thing.

I wasn't pregnant.

My doctor told me this... the majority of healthy couples trying take 6 to 12 months to conceive - expect to get 12 periods when you start trying.

When you get your IUD removed, it kind of messes with your body (especially when you have the hormonal one). Getting mine removed messed my cycle up for a few months (2 weeks late the first month and a few days early the next month).

Good luck! but don't drive yourself crazy.
