It is very very rare to conceive while using a IUD but if this should happen, then you need to contact your health care provider immediately to have the IUD removed. You can then choose to continue or terminate the pregnancy. If you choose an abortion, you can get another IUD after the procedure, or choose another method of Birth Control. For your safety, however, you can't leave the IUD in while pregnant.
