Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD: Several studies have shown that the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is still over 98% effective at 7 years. So you have approx. a 2% chance at 6 years. It is only approved by the FDA for 5 years.

Low, but a big risk: The Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD should be removed after five years if used for contraception. It probably lasts significantly longer than 5 years, but YOU SHOULD NOT RELY ON IT ANY LONGER, and use alternate (backup) birth control until you can have it removed. Pregnancies that occur with the IUD in place can be very problematic. It is NOT worth the risk.
