In brief: Yes

If you have an iud and become pregnant it is important to see an obgyn and have an ultrasound.
If the iud can be easily removed, it should be. The iud can cause problems with the pregnancy there for if it remains in the risks will be higher, an maternal fetal medicine comanagement should be considered.

In brief: Possible miscarriage

According to webmd, "if you become pregnant with an iud in place, your doctor will recommend that the iud be removed.
This is because the iud can cause miscarriage or preterm birth (the iud will not cause birth defects)." see your ob/gyn asap for iud removal or further advice.
