Very poor! Have it removed before thinking about becoming pregnant. Once you have the IUD removed, the statistics are the same for getting pregnant and having a normal pregnancy as if you had never used a contraceptive. If you already are pregnant, you may need to terminate the pregnancy. Please see your doctor!!!

If you leave a hormonal IUD in after its useful life, you may be at risk of pregnancy. There are no other risks from leaving an IUD in forever.

If you leave the hormonal IUD in too long, you may be at risk of pregnancy. Other than that, there is no risk from leaving an IUD in too long.

No, a positive pregnancy test is the sign of pregnancy on the IUD.

If you leave the copper IUD in too long, there are no potential health problems. If you leave a hormonal IUD like Mirena in too long, you may not be protected against pregnancy, but there are no other risks.
