Ok so I've made a few post today, but this one is by far the closest to my heart. I gave birth to my second child in 2008 and right after that I decided to get the copper IUD.. Well after about almost 2 years of having it in I chose to have it taking out, with hopes of having baby #3. On the day is was removed the GYNO couldn't find the strings so she sent in another doc, who then took a hook and scrapped until she was able to remove it... IT WAS BY FAR THE WORST PAIN THAT I HAVE EVER FELT IN MY LIFE........ (never had vaginal birth) Well since that day I have been trying and trying, only to be un successful. It has been 18 long months and still nothing. MY QUESTION IS: Could something have gone terrible wrong that day that could have left me with INFERTILITY????? Last month was my 1st time starting opk's and I didn't get a surge. This month I did get a surge but now I'm wondering if I can even have children. QUESTION#2: Can I have a surge and not release a egg????
