i've had my mirena (levonorgestrel) for 5 years. is it still effective till i get it removed in 2 months or should i use another birth control until then?

Should still be good: The duration of use of the Mirena (levonorgestrel) has been revised/extended and your Mirena (levonorgestrel) could probably remain effective for another 1 or 2 years . Be safe. Discuss your concerns with a knowledgeable gynecologist.
