Mirena and Pregnancy

Patient : I have just found out I am pregnant (7 weeks) with the Mirena IUD in place. They have tried to remove it but were unable to find the strings and could not clearly see it on my ultrasound (they think they did), and are worried it might of embedded or maybe even perforated my uterus. They have given me two options: keep the baby with the IUD or abort the pregnancy. I am in a different country and it has been difficult to get clear answers, so I am wondering if you could provide me information regarding the risks of both options. Also, how will an embedded/perforated IUD effect my future fertility?
