Lydia IUD does not cause women to have ectopic pregnancy and it does not increase the chances of having ectopic pregnancy. An ectopic pregnancy is an abnormal one that happens when a fertilized egg grows outside the womb and often has no known cause. Since Lydia IUD prevents an egg from being fertilized this means pregnancy will not occur whether ectopic or normal.
