I got the mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD put in about 2 weeks ago. I am scared to have "rough" sex. Can sex move the IUD out of place? What are the chances?

In brief: No

Unless you physically go in and pull the strings with an instrument, you will not move the iud.
Sex will not move it, so no worries.
