Welcome to ehealthforum.
It is not necessary that all women should experience symptoms of pregnancy. You can or cannot experience them depending on how your body responds. The symptoms of early pregnancy include: fatigue, nausea, constipation, increased sleep, hunger and tiredness, mood changes, headaches, acne, back pain, lower abdominal cramps, increased frequency of urine, breast soreness, nipple sensitivity, blue veins on breasts, pelvic discomfort and heaviness, food cravings, dizziness, increase in vaginal discharge without any foul smell or any other associated symptoms like itching, burning rashes etc.
If you suspect to be pregnant with the IUD still inside, then visit your gynecologist/obstetrician at the earliest for a blood HCG level test (it can detect pregnancy accurately as early as 11 days post conception), and ultrasound scan. It is important to rule out chances of ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy with IUD has high chances to result into ectopic pregnancy) to be able to prevent life threatening complications.
Take care.
