Can you get pregnant with IUD and pulling out?
You can get pregnant while using an IUD, but it’s very unlikely. Less than 1% of women with copper or hormonal IUDs get pregnant each year. An IUD should stay in your uterus to prevent pregnancy. But sometimes it can move out of place and slip into your cervix, which is below your uterus.
