    Sex Just Prior to IUD Removal

    An_240964 posted:
    My husband and I had sex two days before my Paragard IUD was removed. I ovulated two days after the removal. I usually have 29-30 day cycles. I am currently on day 25 and I had just a tiny bit of pink spotting this morning, but nothing since. I usually spot on day 28 or 29. Could my cycle be short from adjusting to the removal or is it possible to be pregnant and that be implantation bleeding?

    Hello An_240964!

    A pregnancy test in a few days should tell you which scenario is correct. Nurse Jane's blog on Getting Pregnant after the IUD may be helpful.

    Good luck and let us know how it turns out,
