Welcome to ehealthforum

Mirena failure has been reporetd by woman and some have conceived while on that though rare.Bleeding after intercourse can also be due to displaced IUD.A pelvic examination would be helpful in ascertaining the cause.
Kindly visit a Gynaecologist to see if the IUD is in place or not.

Take care
