Call your doctor.
Sometimes they slip out of place, which is really no big deal if the doc catches it right away, but it can cause some pretty serious damage if it goes untreated.

I have the mirena and have never experienced what you're describing, anytime something comes out of no where you probably should see a doctor to figure out what is going on.

I do not want to scare you but my daughter had an IUD placed. Not long after she had pains like you had come out of nowhere but she did not know at first what to think of it. She had a doctor's appointment one day and told the doctor what was going on. They discovered that her IUD had torn her uterus. The doctor sent her for emergency surgery since they did not know how bad it was torn. Lucky for her it was not too bad. So I would advise you to call your doctor or if you feel that the pain is too much to wait, go to the ER.

I called my doctor she said it sounds like a cyst that ruptured. She said it sounds way too low to be my mirena. She is going to do an ultrasound tomorrow just to check that it is good to go. It hurts to walk or sit or anything and it's not fun, but at least it's not as bad as at first anymore!
