YES The iud has a failure rate of 3-6/1000. Most of the pregnancies are tubal or ectopic. It is important to do a pregnancy test if you suspect pregnancy. If positive, get to a Dr right away.

I did a pregnancy test and it came back negative but I feel pregnant.
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 2 years ago.
The failure rate of the iud is very low. You cannot be pregnant with a negative pregnancy test.
