Could I be pregnant with IUD?

I have the copper IUD(99% effective)
A few weeks ago I started feeling pregnant. I have 2 children & with both of them I just knew, but I discarded b/c I thought impossible.
Started bleeding about 1 1/2 weeks ago, much lighter (in days & flow)
Then I spotted just once a few days ago & I feel crazy bloated & nauseous.
When I checked the position of my string & I could barely reach it (always well within my reach before)
All this was weird so I decided to take a pregnancy test. It was a rite aid 5 days sooner test. I got the weirdest faintest blue line barely there. I couldn't even see it from every angle. I thought maybe my eyes were playing tricks on me, but my fiance saw it too. My boys'lines were very visible!!

I am all freaked out because of the miscarriage rate w/IUD. Has anyone ever gone through this? I have a call into DR & have an ultrasound on Fri to check string position.

  • I get pregnant on Mirena. You have to go to the doctor ASAP because if you are it has to come out immediately. My son is healthy but it can cause a lot of problems. And if you aren't pregnant you'll atleast have some peace of mind.
