Forgive the short and poorly formatted reply, I am responding from my phone. It probably wouldn't have to be removed right away. I would be very
concerned about infection from trying to remove it myself. I am glad I take the pill and that I have a year supply on hand! In highly stressful
situations, as I imagine shtf would be, getting pregnant would not be an easy feat. The female body is designed in such a way that if times are hard
(scarce food, low body fat percentage, exreme physical activity, etc) ovulation ceases which also causes menstruation to cease. When life gets easier
again, food gets better, body fat increases-ovulation will resume.
