Risks Of Pregnancy With Iud
I Have the paraguard iud, why am I freaking out about pregnancy when my boyfriend and I hugged while naked?
Anxiety: You are "freaking out" due to anxiety over having an unplanned pregnancy. Although the left half of your brain which is associated with logic "knows" that you can't get pregnant, the right half of your brain (creative/artistic side) is thinking, "What if?" Could the IUD fall out? Could sperm suddenly jump from his body into your uterus? In truth, anxiety is more complicated, but I am out of space ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Neither: The IUD increases one's risk for ectopic pregnancy only very very slightly. The mini pill doesn't increase your risk of ectopic. Statistically I wouldn't make a decision based on these 2 forms of birth control vis-v-vis ectopic given how little influence they would have.

Ok I am scared i might be pregnant and I have the meirana IUD in and I have been having symptoms of pregnancy but the home tests are reading neg!?
Neg test = not preg: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more
My IUD is still in and should have been removed about 6 months ago do I have a higher chance of pregnancy now? What can happen if I keep it in longer?
Maybe higher: IUD's will still protect from pregnancy past the time they are recommended for removal. However, after the recommended removal date, the effectiveness of the IUD may become less, as the copper or progesterone diminishes. An IUD is still quite effective for birth control without the copper or progesterone, but not quite as effective as with it. ...Read more
