In brief: Might not be IUD
If the iud is in the proper place, it normally won't hurt.
You can check to see if your strings are in the normal place. Your doctor can do an exam and order and ultrasound to check placement also. Lower abdominal pain can also be caused by problems with the bowels, uterus, ovaries, and uterine lining (called endometriosis), i would recommend seeing your doctor for evaluation of your pain.
