Ovulation after removal of ParaGard IUD

Patient: I have not had my period since i had my paraguard iud taking out in March. Some say this is normal I am not sure. But my question is can you still get pregnant even if you do not get your period. I was not sure if you still can ovulate or not.

 

 

Doctor: The foremost suspicion for missed periods in a sexually active women is almost always pregnancy. Your ovulation may resu me in almost a month of removal of the IUD. Thus it is likely that you may be pregnant. You may take a home pregnancy test for confirmation.
