I Need Help Pregnancy signs

Ask The Doctor > Questions & Answers > I Need Help Pregnancy signs

Patient: What are the chances of getting pregnant with and IUD, i have had one for about a half a year and i am having symptoms of a pregnancy but since i have the IUD it throws me off a bit

Symptoms: Pain in lower abdomen, tender breasts, frequent eating at night time



Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.There are chances of conception with an IUD, it is not uncommon. Although the percentag e is not predictable and varies from type of IUD and person to person. Since you have early pregnancy symptoms, you could see a Gynecologist for an examination and also an ultrasound. Do a beta hCG test to rule out pregnancy.Hope this helped.Regards
