Evelyn Resh MPH,CNM(Certified Sexuality Counselor & Nurse-Midwife)answered(10/23/2013)Different birth control methods have different risks associated with them, but infertility is rarely - if ever - one of them. Long-term use of some hormonal methods such as birth control pills, Depo-Provera, NuvaRing, Explanon, and perhaps the Mirena may delay the return of your normal ovulation cycle which you will need in order to conceive. The Paragard IUD doesn't impact your ovulation so unless the placement has somehow been incorrect and then damages your reproductive organs - which is VERY rare - getting pregnant after using one should not be a problem. The over all point of using birth control is to interfere with fertility but not destroy it. let me know if this answers your question.
