Our expert says:
The Mirena needs to be changed after 5 years. You should not assume that you will be safe if you leave it for longer. At your age, the chances of pregnancy are small though not impossible. Your options are another Mirena, the Pill if you are not a smoker and have normal blood pressure, or a sterilisation.
