  • I would call your doc. It can implant itself or become lodged.

  • well, an update: i did get my period..so im assuming im not PG..but when its stops im going to get a checkup to see if its moved and im gonna see if they will give me a blood pregnancy test. I also threw the idea out to my BF that maybe we should just take the IUD out and get PG now, since we both want kids (his first,my 4) and then I'd get my tubes tied, so i dont have to worry about BC anymore!! so, im waiting for that conversation!!
