Copper IUD Removal, Early Period?

Hi ladies,

I've had my copper IUD removed on 11/4. AF is usually very regular at 28 days, which the next cycle to begin 11/9 >> however, on 11/5 AF appeared to have come knocking a few days early with a light flow on 11/5 and a medium flow today (11/6). Is it truly AF coming early? (There was no blood/discharge the day of the removal.) And, if so, how does this affect my ability to predict ovulation?

Thanks so much in advance!

I had my IUD taken out last year in November and I got pregnant in May even though I was going by ovulation. Some of my friends had difficulty after taking theirs out and some didn't.

I never had the copper one but when I had the regular one removed I had my period the next day.

Thanks! I guess I'll just keep tracking and see how it goes. We're not in a real rush but the waiting game is never easy! :)
