  • Yes you can. I went in to have mine checked and not only was it falling out, but I was ovulating A LOT! Enough that my midwife said "Wow your ovaries are producing tons of eggs!". About 2 months later, it started falling out again and I just let it come out instead of having her put it back!

  • Yes, you can! I got preg. while on it. I took a test and even went to the dr and took a blood test and it was positive. I had a miscarriage though. But yes it can happen.
