I have paraguard in right now & every now & then worry about getting pregnant. So I was wondering if it has happened to any of you & if so what happened?

I've known 3 people who got pregnant with IUDs. I have a Mirena and I've had suspicious symptoms this past week. I took a hpt yesterday and it was - (which is a relief). One of the three people miscarried and two gave birth to full term, healthy babies.

A good friend of mine got pregnant with an IUD in. It was a big shock, to say the least, and quite scary because she had alot of cramping and spotting at first. At about 11 weeks, they successfully removed the IUD, and she went on to have an uncomplicated pregnancy and a second beautiful daughter.
There are also a few ladies in my son's DDC (on another site) who had this happen.
I don't want to worry you, but it's definitely possible.
Good luck!

There's always going to be a handful of people who get pregnant on any form of birth control. As they go, the IUD is the most effective form behind sterilization. It's 99.4% effective I believe. A tubal is 99.6 to 99.8% effective. So, not much difference

I would take the test now because you are going to need to have the IUD removed if you are pregnant, even if you don't plan to keep the baby.

Also, how long have your periods been back? After both babies, it took me several months after my first PP returned before I was regular again.

Don't know anyone who got pregnant with an IUD, but I know it does happen...

I do have a friend with an 8.5 month old daughter who is 5 months pregnant with another after Mirena fell OUT!
: So I guess anything is possible.

I've had random spotting with my IUD for the past 8 months, so I don't have a real period or any regularity. I tested just because I had pg-like symptoms and knew I'd need to get in ASAP to remove the IUD.

yeah, I had to have my paraguard replaced when I had it becuase I expelled the first one. That's why you're supposed to check your strings and go to the doc if anything feels off.
