IUD and pregnancy tests

Hello there,

I am 26 years old and a mother of two boys. I had the IUD inserted 17 months ago without any problems. My periods are normally regular, I am two weeks late this time, I have done a pregnancy test and this shows negative. Is it possible to have a false reading whilst IUD in place.


Dear Heather,

An IUD has not effect on a pregnancy test. Certain IUDs contain hormones and these can cause you to miss a period. Talk it over with your doctor.
