I had my mirena for almost 3 years and then started having a lot of pelvic pain...so much so that I had it taken out and they found that I had several cysts on my ovaries. Unfortunately ovarian cysts can be caused (or made worse) by mirena. Once I had it taken out the cysts slowly got better and the pain went away. Maybe it is something similar. I think your best bet is to always check in with your doctor. Good luck!

No problem Samantha Implanon is internal birth control. It's low hormone so you can still nurse while on it. They place it under your arm in your tricep and you don't have to think about it for at least 5 years.

Some people don't like that you can feel it under your arm (it feels kinda like a toothpick and is an inch long) But I don't even notice it.

I was having horrible cramps, especially during my periods, and even worse when I would have sex!!! I then found out, I have ovarian cysts that had ruptured. I would go get checked just in case. :))

It depends on how long you've had Mirena. I didn't have problems with it. It hurt like hell when my OB/GYN first put it in, but after that I was Okay. It may be a cyst or you may have endometriosis. It's worth getting checked out. Good luck. I've had Mirena since November 2010.

hey i had the copper coil in, and it came out by itself in jan 2012! i had so much pain and discomfort, everything inside was swollen, and pushed down, and when i had intercourse, it was uncomfortable and i dreaded it. i went to the doctors as said something wasnt right and she said its fine but couldnt find the strings, and i said there must be some way of checking its in the right place, so i went for an ultrasound, which came back fine.

since it has fallen out, im still abit swollen down there, months down the line, but not been to the drs since it has been out, i will be though as my partner is noticing it more now during intercourse, but it was a huge weight off of me when it came out, i knew something wasnt right, and i knew i was uncomfortable, but like i said, since it fell out, i have been able to enjoy sex, i actually want it now, whereas before i was sort of dreading it, and my periods have been regular and light whereas before they were all over the place and i was forever leaking through where it was so heavy. hope you get it sorted sweetheart, as i know how uncomfortable it is.

go see your doctor, do not sit at home suffering as it is possible something can be done to help, and also insist they do a vaginal examination and for a 2nd opinion if it comes to it get an ultrasound to make sure it is in the right place. :) good luck hun x

I had the same kinds of pain. I had my mirena Placed last June. I had constant pain. My dr kept trying to tell me it was normal. I moved and went to a new dr and found out that the mirena was embedded in my uterine wall.

I was told that what I experianced with my Mirena was rare (lucky me, I should have run out and bought a lotto ticket) but that didn't make me want to put a new one in.

Want to also add that I've had the mirena in for four years and then ever since my last child was born with no problems. I love it!

Don't mention it. I'm glad I could help.

I experianced abdominal pain from my Mirena too and I thought it was normal until my OBGYN couldn't find the strings. Then they did the ultrasound.

I had the same thing happen to me. My mirena had moved out its original location and was no longer effective. It had to be removed. I would see your OB.

i tried checking my strings but my cervix was really high. you would think since it was so high i wouldve been able to feel them but couldnt feel anything. wonder if it moved up too far

I wouldn't be either. But it's actually quite rare for the Mirena to slip somewhere else. It is a side affect though

I have no idea. But I was having pains in my lower abdomin for a few weeks and I hadn't felt the strings. I went to my OBGYN and she couldn't find them either so I had the ultrasound and they found it in the left side of my abdominal cavity.

I had laproscopic surgery (a small incision in my naval and a smaller incision than that where the Mirena was) to get it out. And now I have implanon which I like even better.

I'd say yes. Have you checked the strings lately? I had to get mine removed because it went from my uterus into my abdominal cavity. I have Implanon now and I like it so much better.

Call your OBGYN and get them to schedule an pelvic exam and an ultrasound so in case they don't find it via the pelvic exam they find it with the ultrasound.

I'm waiting for him to call me back. The nurse said she doesn't understand what would be causing it. Yet I've heard from other women that had the same problem.

It probably is, but my 1st and foremost suggestion is to go to your doctor!! Getting medical advice online isn't very safe, only so much you can find out.
