... but its been 10 n never changed it er whatever! Does it continue ta work er what happins!?
No, it no longer works properly and since it secretes no hormones to prevent pregnancy, a pregnancy could occur in the uterus along with the device and this could cause problems for the baby including loss of the pregnancy and hemorrhaging. There is a reason for time limits on these products. If you do not adhere to the schedules ,then they do not work properly and could cause ectopic (or tubal) pregnancy, infection, which could lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, which could, in turn, lead to scarring and sterility, the device could embed itself into the wall of the uterus and have to be surgically cut out to remove it. It needs to be removed as soon as possible! It is not doing any good and could cause great harm!
