Q: My girlfriend an I had sex in early Dec 2014. She has an IUD. She claims to have had a miscarriage on Jan 24 2015. She had no prior signs of pregnancy. Is this possible?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.
There is a possibility of IUD to have failed. In such a case, there is chance of pregnancy which can be possible and hence the chances of the miscarriage .No contraception is possible to be hundred percent effective.
Hope this helped.
Regards
