I have had just a few minor side effects with Mirena since I got it put in 2010. A week ago, I fell asleep at 8pm and woke up at 11pm with very severe SHARP contraction-like pains in my uterus for about ten minutes straight. They were as bad as labor pains I have had. I couldn't even bear to stand. I called my doctor and she said to schedule and appointment if it happens again. I am tempted to have it taken out before something goes wrong! Does anyone know what might cause those pains? It has only happened once, but that is enough!
