Hey guys, I have an IUD that is pretty much 2 years out of date (long story). It is a copper one that was supposed to be for 5 years and I've had it for nearly 7 (Nova T-380). What I am wondering is.... 1. It won't be working now right? I mean, I have seen studies that show they CAN be effective for about 2 years longer than they originally thought. But I don't know for sure how effective or not effective they would be by this point :/ 2. If it is NOT effective any more, then would it still increase your risk of ectopic pregnancy? 'Cos I know that getting pregnant with an IUD can increase your chance of ectopic, but I don't know if it would still do that if it's expired/not working any more. Just looking for other people's experiences and/or input please. Thank you P.S. I did not know where to post this so I hope this section of the forum is okay.
