Did anyone get prego while using an IUD?

I know that they can fall out and then you can get prego. But has anyone gotten prego on an IUD?

  • It's very rare. The only time it happens, is if it's not placed corrcectly, or it falls out. If it is in there & placed right, you will not get pregnant.

    from the mirena website;

    "Mirena IUD is highly effective in birth control. Its effectiveness is up to 99.9 %, It is as effective as tubal ligation or vasectomy. Contraceptive effect is reversible"

  • Yeah well, I'm living proof that .1% does get pregnant on Mirena. My daughter is due in July. And I had Mirena for 2 years almost 3 before I conceived on it. Nothing is 100% except abstinence
