Diganosed issues with Mirena? (preg.,PID, embeddment...)

User Profile
Hello! I was wondering if anyone has had issues with Mirena (iud/iuc)?? I have been having lots of problems lateley such as low back pain (like I had in labor), cramping, erect & sensitive nipples. I took a pregnancy test and it is negative so I dont think that I am pregnant, so I just want to know if anyone has had real issues like pregnancy, PID, or anything else that I should know about. Please state your symptoms and how you found out what was wrong. Thanks for all you help!!

Welcome to ehealthforum

It is very common to have side effects of IUD insertion as backache,cramps,sore nipples as it contains hormones and as the body gets adjusted to the hormonal changes after few months the effects start disappearing.Pregnancy,diplaced IUD are rare issues with it.
You can wait and watch for few months but if it is too bothersome you can consider visiting your gynaecologist for another option but every contraceptive preparation is associated with some effects.
Take care!
