In brief: Ovarian cysts

Ovarian cysts are very common.
Most are benign and resolve on their own in 6-8 weeks. Hemorrhagic cysts can be painful. If your pain is severe consider seeing an Obgyn. Mirena IUD are associated with slower resolution of ovarian cysts but not a direct cause.

In brief: Somewhat

Mirena IUD does make patient's more at risk for developing functional ovarian cysts that can become hemorrhagic.
However, usually the pain from hemorrhagic ovarian cysts is sharp, fast onset and then resolves over 1-2 weeks. If pain is continuing for a month and not improving, I would consider further evaluation
