A retrospective study of women who became pregnant while using intrauterine devices shows that more than half of the IUDs were malpositioned.

David Speicher and colleagues explain that ectopic pregnancy happens when an embryo does not attach normally inside the mother's uterus, but instead attaches and begins growing...
