Mirena coil has hit its 5 year birthday. Do I need to get it out pronto or is it safe to hang in there a while? : birthcontrol


Hi. F27. I’ve already posted this on askdocs but there’s more people here and I’m getting anxious about it!

My mirena coil has now been in for 5 years and 3 months (its’ 5 years was January 2020). I was due to have it out next week back home but due to working abroad and lockdowns thats unlikely to happen for a few months…

I have noticed that the hormones in it seem to have ‘run out’. ie I’ve had light periods the last couple of months and heavy cramps after not having anything for the last 4 years.

Apart from not being effective birth control now do I need to be concerned about it at all?
