Are my IUD hormones running out?

I didn't think this could happen, but I guess it makes sense. My dd was 6 in Feb, so I have had the IUD for almost 6 years. I know they are only supposed to be good for 5 (the hormones in them), but the ones without hormones are good for 10 years. Ok, so over the last couple of weeks I am all the sudden starting to feel funky. Bloated, always feeling full, lightheaded (when I do anything too fast), headaches (not constant), so tired, lower back dull pain, change in bowel habits. My ma had a full hysterectomy at 40ish so I am a little concerned. I do have an appt scheduled, I just wanted to probe to see if these symptoms sounded inline with an IUD being "no good" anymore? Thanks!

I've had an IUD for a little over a year and my Dr said I should have stopped having a period, but I still have it every month? I'm just wondering if that's normal or if I need to remove it or what not.
