One of the most effective ways that a woman can prevent pregnancy is through taking birth control pill. While these are highly effective and IUD is able to prevent even more pregnancies than pills that are taken on a daily basis. The main reason for this is because women tend to forget to take birth control pills consistently. However, with an IUD, there is nothing that must be taken on a daily basis.

Overall, an IUD is 99% effective at preventing pregnancies. However, it can still happen and women do become pregnant on occasion. Many of the women who become pregnant while an IUD is in place find that their pregnancy is ectopic. They also have a greater chance of having a miscarriage as well.

They will most likely attempt to remove the device so that you will not develop any pregnancy complications from it. While some have become pregnant while an IUD is in place, this is a rare occurrence and most women find them to be very successful.
