Hi!
Yes.  The medication in the rods dissolves after 5 years.  So despite the fact that you still have a rod in place, it is a "blank" and shouldn't affect your fertility at this point.
Those guys are BEARS to get out!  If you want the last rod removed, you could ask your provider to try using ultrasound to find it.  Or you could just leave it and forget about it.

Good luck!
