mirena

I have had the mirena since dec 2004 and it' s coming into the end of the 5th year. Am waiting to get health insurance for me to have it taken out here in the States. In the mean time I had a period last month which lasted 8 days and every month before that my period never really came and if it did it lasted 3days. I am 31 years and weigh about 53kilo' s, vegetarian. I do get enough protein and have enough energy. I am just nervous since my husband and I are sexually active and we dont want a baby right now. I have another year to go and then we will try for a family. Is it necesarry to have it taken out as soon as the 5years are up.
