copper coil and pain in side

I had the copper coil inserted 2 weeks ago and its been great..except now and then (usually when i lie down)..i get a pain in my side, as if something is digging into my left ovary. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I've had so much problems with birth control i dont really want to go back again unless i really have too.

Pain with Copper Coil
I had mine in a few months ago, and for about 3 weeks now I've had a constant cramping/strained muscle kind of pain in my right ovary area. I'm also looking for answers whilst waiting for my doctors appointment. Think you should definately go in for a check up just incase it's an infection or something.
