No its not effective after the 3 yrs, the hormones in it would be gone.
Well my doctor told me she had a patient that didnt take it off after 5 years, and that the patient told her someone told her it was still effective after the 3 years. The doctor said they have not proven that at all and that is why they till you to remove it after 3 years because its when it starts wearing off and i believe its true because i had it for the whole 3 years, the first 2 years i didnt have my period then when it came close to half of the third year on it i started having periods again, its not safe to have it after the three years.
