Pregnancy and Loop

Can they save your baby if you fall pregnant while you have the copper loop inserted? Basically what i am asking is, if by fluke you fall pregnant can they take out the copper Loop without dislodging the baby?

There is a higher miscarriage rate if you fall pregnant with a loop whether it is remoevd or not, but this doesn't always happen.

not sure whether it can be done. my friend had the same problem three yrs ago. she got preg with the loop, drs said that it is risky to touch the loop as it will affect the baby causing it miscarriage, they just left it there hoping for the best, unfortunatelt she miscarried at five months. Maybe in your situattion they can remove it, but it is risky.
