Yes, It Is Possible To Get Pregnant With An IUD

IUD is a contraceptive implant which are inserted into the vagina and helps prevent pregnancy in women who are not ready for parenthood.

His mom, Lucy Hellein, underwent a C-section and placed the IUD in his hand for the photo moments later as a playful jab at doctors - who assured her that it was almost impossible to get pregnant while fitted with the device.

Doctors who spoke with Yahoo Beauty reported that the chances of a woman becoming pregnant with an IUD in place are rare but not impossible and that doctors should attempt to remove an IUD if a woman does become pregnant or her chances for miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy and preterm labor rise significantly.

This was Hellein's third time using Mirena and she said she's never had any problems before. May 4th is also Star Wars Day and Hellein laughed as she shared that her doctor told her that "the force is strong with this one", reports 12News. "If the pregnancy is successful. there's no evidence to suggest that the IUD will impact the baby's health in the future", Dr. Molloy says.


But to her surprise, she learned that she was 18 weeks pregnant in December.

"My OB and the majority of the nurses I saw during the remainder of my pregnancy assumed [my IUD] had just fallen out", Lucy Hellein tells Global News.

Speaking to the press about the malfunction of the IUD and her baby boy's birth, Lucy said, "Dexter was definitely meant to be".

Congrats to Lucy and her new healthy baby boy! It was found after she gave birth, behind the placenta. It is "long-term, reversible, and one of the most effective birth control methods out there". It all began when she realized her IUD must have failed because - whoops! - she was pregnant.


The family has started a Go Fund Me page to help save up for a college fund for surprise baby Dexter.

What's more, a picture of her new-born son Dexter Tyler clutching the T-shaped device in his fist went viral with more than 60,000 shares just after being uploaded on the social media.

Thank God for birth control. Ghasseminia said it works by releasing the hormone progesterone, which prevents pregnancy.
