Check strings: You can confirm that your Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud is in the proper location by regularly making sure you can feel the iud strings in your vagina. If you cannot feel the strings, or if you develop bad cramps, or increased bleeding, see your clinician. They will confirm that your iud strings are visible and proper length. If not, they can perform an u/s to confirm proper location, followed by xray if needed.

Bleeding or not: Some patients will have bleeding or spotting, and can have cramping, particularly the first day after insertion. However, it can also cause periods to stop altogether. They are generally very well tolerated.
