Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Mirena coil even if it has expired acts as a foreign body in the uterus and interferes with implantation. A pregnancy with coil in situ is highly unlikely.
Also, since the repeated pregnancy tests are negative, there is no need to worry.
But it would be best to get the coil removed as it has already expired.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
