Not to alarm you, but. . .a few years ago I got pregnant with a copper IUD in place properly, and it was an ectopic pregnancy which partially ruptured. I was very busy with school at the time and didn't really realize how late I was, plus I had a few days of spotting which I mistakenly assumed was my period. Please get checked out if it doesn't come soon - ectopic pregnancies are more common with IUD's, and they can be very serious for your health ; and sad
). Severe cramping is generally the first sign.
I lost a fallopian tube and a 7 week old fetus (they couldn't "find" the fetus for over a week after the first rupture and I had to wait, risking another rupture, for it to grow big enough to show up on the ultrasound
, though I was lucky to not bleed to death during the initial rupture and lucky to keep my ovary (the pregnancy was attached right under it). It was a scary and very painful experience, but I have gotten pregnant and carried a healthy baby to full term afterwards, with much joy and relief!
Hope all is well with you, sorry to be a downer, just wanted to share my story in case it might help you or someone else. . .imho copper IUD's are not to be trusted completely. I will never have any IUD in me after all that, actually. Dh just got a vasectomy, now that we're "done".
