Mirena IUD: The manufacturer's "suggested" length of use prior to "recommended replacement" is about five years, but if (apparently) working for pregnancy avoidance, it is probably conservative. There is always a "chance" for pregnancy with any form of contraception, so if leaving the current Mirena in place is your decision, be prepared for a contraception failure.
