Possibly: Although the IUD is very effective in preventing pregnancy, a small chance exist. Take a pregnancy test to confirm. Pregnancy with an IUD can result in ectopic pregnancy, which can be life threatening.

You should have many more years of contraceptive protection with this device. Even if not pregnant, review symptoms with your OB/GYN especially if you miss another period or have any other symptoms. Best wishes:)
