Can a Mirena IUD that is over 5 years old cause symptoms of pregnancy, and an "enlarged uterus"?

In brief: Mirena

The Mirena IUD is approved for use for 5 years.
After 5 years it should be removed. If one is happy with it a new one can be placed. If you are having pregnancy symptoms then a home pregnancy test should be done. An expired IUD would not directly cause pregnancy symptoms or an enlarged uterus
