I have the iud and lately i've been paranoid I'm pregnant due to various symptoms I've been experiencing. I took a home pregnancy test which came up negative, but I'm not comforted by this because I don't know if the IUD would skew the results, and 3 came up negative when I was pregnant with my son. The only reason I found out with him was I needed an x-ray at the hospital for a work injury, peed in a cup and was shocked by the nurses "your pregnant" response. So my question is how "normal" is it to get pregnant on the iud, and would the iud itself mess with the test results.
Obviously I'm going to make an appointment with my dr, if the symptoms continue I'm just currently on vacation and was wondering if anyone else experienced this situation.
