What can happen if you keep your IUD in longer than the prescribed time?

You should ask your doctor. I believe it will cause serious

bleeding, and will possibly get some type of infection from it.

I left mine in for a yr and 1/2 longer than the prescribed time

and i am fine i had no problems. It just becomes inactive. I did

although get pregnant during that time and had it removed to avoid

any complications to my pregnancy.
