IUD check: Many women do not have periods when using the Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD. This is one of the nice side effects. Your cramping will need to be evaluated by your doctor. There are many causes of cramping. Some are gynecologic. Others are intestinal or from the bladder. An exam will be needed
