I hope I help you here I'm no doctor but thus is what happen to me...
Well, first of all, you cant count on it to keep you from getting pregnant, it can cause infection if left in too long or it can embed itself into the uterus and have to be surgically removed. It is important to get it removed. If you would happen to get pregnant with the old IUD in place, it could be harmful to the fetus, you stand a great chance of losing the baby.
