Typically, the Paragard IUD will prevent pregnancy. However, it is only 99.9% effective, so there is a small chance that a pregnancy can occur while the IUD is in place. Usually, when a woman becomes pregnant after having the Paragard IUD implanted, the device has become dislodged, but this is not always the case. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

If you find that you are pregnant and have the Paragard IUD in place, it is important that you talk to your doctor and have the device removed immediately. There are serious birth defects that can occur if the IUD is left in place.

If you have decided to try to become pregnant but have the Paragard IUD in place, it is best to have your doctor remove it first. After removal, it can take some time before your ovulation cycle returns to normal once more. It is best to track your ovulation cycle with a basal thermometer or an ovulation predictor kit during this time.

While you are tracking your ovulation, you can continue to try to conceive as often as desired. However, it is important to note that you will not be able to become pregnant if you are not having an ovulation cycle. For this reason, you should talk to your doctor if your ovulation cycle does not return in a timely manner.
