Paragard: Your warranty will be up-the copper on the iud goes away over time. No guarantee you would have contraception.

Should be checked: The iud is not recommended for more than ten years. The removal threads may have rotted off. At times iusds become implanted in the wall of the uterus. You should be checked by your health provider..
