  • Oh god lol.I have had one in for almost a year. My baby is 11 months old and I had it put in at my 6 week checkup after having her. The one I have is suppose to last 5 years and they said in some people thier period actually stops. I have been having mine every month and then all of a sudden they just stopped two months ago. I sometimes feel weird in the belly but I don't know if it is just me thinking about it to much of what. I have been afraid to take a test because we didn't plan on having anymore kids but if I keep feeling like this I think I am going to ask my Dr about it Wednesday when I take my oldest son in for his checkup.

  • Its possible to get pregnant on any bc.. if you think you may be you need to see a dr asap. having that in while pregnant may hurt you and the baby. it will cause a miscarriage..

  • It is definitely possible to get pregnant with an IUD in, though very unlikely if the IUD is in place and properly cared for. I got pregnant with an IUD that dislodged (and I didn't realize it).

  • I don't know if I am or not. I just keep getting these weird crampy feelings like I am going to start my period but I have not had it in two months.I have not had mine checked since it was put in so I think first thing tomorrow morning I am going to make and appointment to have it checked.

  • Yes I got pregnant while i had the copper IUD. It is a 10 year one and you are not supposed to miss a period at all.

  • You need to be checked. It can cause a miscarriage and there have also been babies born with the IUD stuck in them. This is a very dangerous form of birth control.

  • Hello ladies. Ive had my iud for a yr. No periods at all. Only time I bled was the day after sex (odd I knw) but I was told NORMAL. So anyway I had been feeling pregnant for the past 3 months including weight gaim that I blamed on iud. So 2wks before mothers day I decided to take a pg test. Neg. So I thought it was just side effects of iud. Well...night b4 mothers day we had sex. Mothers day (sun) I started to bleed and I thought it was weird because like I said the whole yr nothing only when wed have sex. Well I bled the whole week. Couldnt buttom my pants without my waist hurtimg. Following sunday my iud falls out...of course I freak out because the whole week im bleedimg and passing blood clots. I see my dr the next day. He says NORMAL. And all my symptoms of feeling pg NORMAL. SO HERE I AM A WHOLE MONTH LATER AND GUESS WAT? Im pregnant! After I told my dr I felt movement he said it was gas!!!! That was last month
