At least you know your future child will be a trooper, OP. S/he managed to beat the odds to get born, and gosh darnit, they'll continue to beat the odds after they're born! ;) But seriously, congrats and good luck. Unexpected pregnancies can be troublesome, but I'm sure you'll realize s/he is a blessing in disguise!

(1% chance of pregnancy x 2 years) / 1 baby = OP has sex not quite once per week. Based on these stats, if the OP continues to fuck only once per week, she should expect to get pregnant again about every two years. HOWEVER if she continues with her IUD and only fucks once per week, but also gets her partner to use a 99% effective contraception method, the OP can expect to get pregnant only once every 200 years! (Alternatively she can now have sex 10 times per week and still only get pregnant once every 10 years if she uses her IUD and something else.) Point is: Think you're protected? Wear a condom anyway.

The reason I got an IUD is so I didn't have to use condoms. My husband and I don't want children, and we don't want to use condoms. An IUD is the safest option. It's rather redundant to use both and IUD and a condom.

158, it's possible for some women but not generally recommended. Some women who have never given birth are physically unable to get the procedure. They do have a similar device (Implanon) that can be inserted into the upper arm.

The IUD is actually available for women who have never had a child, they suggest against it because it will have a higher (slightly) risk of pregnancy in the Fallopian tubes and even if they had given birth, pregnancy is still more possible in the Fallopian tubes. But that's for the copper IUD, I'm not sure about the mirena. Info from a planned parenthood doctor.

My step sister, who has never had children, also got an IUD (I think mirena?). The main problem is, as stated already, that the cervix might not be able to dialate enough for them to insert it. My sister said it was extremely painful, but since she stuck through the pain, they were able to do it. And isn't the main reason for something like an IUD to make women more able to have sex without the male using a condom? (I wouldn't really know since my love partner is on the pill, and I continue to use a condom anyways)

Pregnancy with both IUD is a possibility buy it's more common for women with the paragard to get pregnant rather than the mirena because the mirena has a low dose of hormones to prevent pregnancy where as the paragard has no hormones it's made out of copper(they are the two different IUD's)

I'm reading your comment as if it is sarcastic. If I'm reading it in the correct way, why did you even bother saying "good luck"? It just makes you sound condescending.

127- I don't think 7 was suggesting an abortion. She said "child", and from my experience, those who are pro-abortion do not consider abortions as affecting a "child", but instead a "fetus". I read comment 7 as a reference to adoption.

Yeah, totally. She just got an IUD for the hell of it, after all, not because she didn't want children. I admire your logical thought processes. Maybe if I'm horribly maimed in a car crash, I'll consider it a miracle cause the odds SEEMED to be in my favor at first.
