Removing an IUD
NHS ChoicesMedical Reference
An IUD can be removed at any time by a trained doctor or nurse.
If you are not going to have another IUD put in and you do not want to become pregnant, use another contraceptive method (such as condoms) for seven days before you have the IUD removed. This is to stop sperm getting into your body. Sperm can live for seven days in the body and could cause pregnancy once the IUD is removed.
As soon as an IUD is taken out, your normal fertility should return.
If you want to start trying for a baby after removing an IUD, ask your GP or nurse for advice beforehand. You may want to start taking folic acid, stop smoking and cut down on alcohol to improve your changes of conceiving and having a healthy pregnancy.
