I had my IUD removed over four months ago after having it in place for only three months. Heavy bleeding started the month after removal. I was on birth control for one month after, and then stopped. My menstrual was due yesterday, and these last two days I'm having severe nausea when I smell food; even the smell of bread is making me nauseous. Could I finally be pregnant?
If you've been off birth control and actively trying to get pregnant, then yes, there's a good chance you are pregnant. If you're late for your period, then you should go ahead and take a pregnancy test.
Keep in mind that it can take several months, and in some cases up to a year, to become pregnant when actively trying. The nausea is a pretty good indicator of pregnancy, but it is also a common PMS symptom.
