merina IUD after it has expired

In my case, insertion of an IUD by the usual means proved difficult (my cervix being very small and my vagina very long), so it was done, whilst I was also undergoing explorations of my womb, under anaesthetic. When the IUD expired, some 3 years ago, my GP suggested I just leave it in. I am concerned that this is not in fact a safe solution indefinitely, and that my (irregular) periods produce very dark, almost black 'blood'. Should I get checked out?
