  • I believe that while the IUD is pretty foolproof, nothing is 100% - so yes, there is a chance, even if it's a super slim one.

    I know the IUD affects everyone's periods differently - if you still get yours, are you late? If not, then I wouldn't worry about it just yet. If you are, then try taking a test. If it's positive, you need to see your doctor ASAP - my understanding is that it can lead to an infection, miscarriage, or birth defects if left in place while pregnant.

    Of course, there are tons of reasons you could be queasy - it could be something as simple as food poisoning or a bug that's going around.

    Good luck!!
