Patient

Symptoms:  Bleeding and discharge
Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Usually getting pregnancy while having IUCD is uncommon.
But rarely pregnancy can occur due to failure of contraception.
Detecting the serum beta hcg levels may help in finding out the possible miscarriage.
Take care.
