I had a mirena iud put in in Aug 2005 and am considering just leaving it in without replacing due to financial strain. I know Plan First will pay for it with a referral but the local health dept. will not give a referal without an exam and for personal reasons, I will not allow them to perform one. Does anyone know if that will have any negative effect or if it will still work after the 5 year mark? If you've kept it for longer than 5 years without having it replaced, please let me know the effects, if any. Thanks!
