Do I have to have a doctor take my IUD out or can I do it?
My husband and I are wanting to get pregnant. I have the IUD in and we were wondering if we could take it out or if a doctor needs to. Also, am I suppose to bleed after taking it out? And how fast could I get pregnant when it is removed?
You are better off having your doc remove it, don't risk injury or infection by doing it yourself. I had mine removed in Nov, got pg the next cycle (though it ended up being a chemical pg) and after the cycle with the m/c, I got pg again and am now 24 weeks. It took very little time to get pg. But again, I stress that you have your doc remove it, they know what they are doing.
