I had mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD inserted on friday. I've been having intense five out of ten cramping since. How long should this last? It was a difficult insertion.
Not much longer: The initial pain you're having is likely your uterus cramping around your iud and the iud getting situated in the uterus. They're getting to know each other and give them some time. If still painful next week, see your doctor to confirm good placement. In the meantime use heat packs, tylenol, (acetaminophen) and Ibuprofen 600mg every 6 hours to help with cramping. See a doctor for any foul odors/discharge. ...Read more

However once the Mirena (levonorgestrel) has been assimilated periods become much lighter, often times disappearing altogether. This is a desirable side effect for most women. However, if your periods are getting heavier not lighter, it is time to revisit your GYN and ask about possibly switching you to another type of IUD or other. ...Read more

See your physician: Your physician can do an ultrasound and confirm that the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is in the right place. I would not recommend hunting for the other string. If you feel one, the other is probably there somewhere. You may have ovulated and be having cramping from that. If you are finished with childbearing, you may want to consider essure. A permanent contracepiton. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) coil fitted and the threads seem longer, I've had intermittent stomach cramps could it have moved?
It's possible: It's difficult to tell the location of your iud solely by the length of the strings. It's possible that it has descended or is even in the process of being expelled. You should schedule an appointment with your doctor. He or she can do a pelvic examination and perform an ultrasound to confirm its location. Use a backup method of birth control just to be safe until your appointment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
