I'm : I'm not sure of when your Mirena iud was placed, but painful cramping and bleeding are very common the first three months and then resolve. Take advil or tylenol (acetaminophen) for your cramping, and if those aren't helping enough then ask your doctor for a stronger medication. The bleeding will slow down and in most women, after several months their periods lighten markedly or stop altogether for five years.
