IUD expired?

I've had the copper IUD for 12 years now. Am I in any danger because I have not removed it?

If you are sexually active with an expired IUD, then you will be in danger if you conceive a baby. Conceiving with an IUD in place can lead to life-threatening ectopic pregnancy.
Copper IUDs are supposed to be removed within 10 years. I'd recommend making an appointment with your doctor as soon as possible (especially if you are sexually active) to have it removed and/or replaced with another IUD or a different form of birth control.
