Copper coil remove has affected my periods

Hi new here.

Looking for some advice

I'm 37 have two kids age 9 and 12.

Me and my partner have decided we'd like to try for another child.

I had the copper coil in for nearly 9 years.

Had it removed in September and prior to the removal my periods were like clock work, the time, the length and even my symptoms where always the same.

My October period was later 4/ days 28 day cylce it would always come on a Sunday or Monday and it came on a Thursday.

Now it's due later and I'm due tomorrow but I have no symptoms and I've taken two taste both negative so I'm unsure if this is how my cycle will be from now on uncertainty!

I conceived within a month of trying with both my kids but I was also alot younger then.

I'd love to get pregnant but I'm more worried that since removing my coil my periods will be unpredictable which also will affect me tracking my ovulation.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated

You've just come off contraception. It can take some time for your body to get used to the fact the contraceptive isn't there. It's only been three months, some people can take a lot longer to readjust. I wouldn't be too concerned just yet.

This isn't the first time I've had a coil removed over my years.This is the first time my body has taken sometime to adjust.

First two times I was pregnant within 4 weeks of removal.

Obviously my age does go against me being 10 years older almost since my last child.
