What Are Signs Mirena IUD Moved Out of Place or Migrated?



An alarming number of women have suffered severe and painful problems with Mirena birth control, which are often first noticed when they discover that the intra-uterine device (IUD) has moved out of place and that they can not locate the Mirena IUD strings.

Lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are no longer accepting new cases for Mirena IUD migration or displacement injuries. This page is maintained for informational purposes only.

This may be a sign of serious complications where a displaced Mirena IUD has migrated and punctured the uterus. In some cases the Mirena IUD has traveled into the abdominal cavity, where it may perforate other organs and cause infections. Immediate medical appointment should be scheduled to locate the Mirena IUD.

Thousands of women filed lawsuits against Bayer Healthcare for failing to provide adequate warnings about the risk of displacement and migration of the birth control implant, instead providing misleading information that exaggerated the benefits provided and minimized any potential side effects of Mirena IUD birth control. New cases are no longer being reviewed by Saiontz & Kirk, P.A.

Signs Mirena IUD Moved Out of Place

Although a displaced Mirena IUD may cause severe internal injury, many women may be unaware that the device has moved out of position until damage has already been done. That is why medical professionals recommend follow up examinations shortly after implant to confirm the correct position of the Mirena IUD and women should be encouraged to check the guide strings.

When the Mirena IUD is implanted, guide strings are left protruding through the cervix and leading back to the Mirena, allowing health care professionals to easily find it and remove the IUD when it is time to come out.

The presence of the strings is one sign that the Mirena is in the correct position. If the strings cannot be found, it is possible that the Mirena has moved out of position and may have punctured the uterus or other organs.

Other signs that the Mirena has become displaced may include:

  • Severe Abdominal Pain
  • Unusual Bleeding
  • Unexplained Infection

Women who suspect the Mirena has migrated or who are having complications that may be linked to the Mirena should see a health care professional and ask for some form of imaging scan to confirm the Mirena’s position.

In a number of cases, doctors have looked for the Mirena but could not find it, even with imaging scans. This is usually because they look where the Mirena should be, and it has moved so far that they cannot easily locate it.

If the Mirena IUD pierced the uterine wall, it could have traveled to anywhere in the woman’s abdominal cavity. This may result in severe damage and in many cases this results in the need for surgical removal of Mirena IUD.


Financial compensation was pursued through a a Mirena injury lawsuit for women experiencing complications caused by the movement or displacement of the IUD.

As a result of the manufacturer’s failure to adequately warn about the risk of the Mirena IUD moving out of place, women and the medical community were not fully aware of this potential side effect and the importance of monitoring the placement of Mirena.

If women were provided better information about the warning signs of Mirena movement, many severe and debilitating injuries could have been avoided by detecting the problems earlier.

The Mirena migration lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are no longer accepting additional cases for migration or displacement injuries.

    I suspected something was wrong with my Mirena IUD. I had pain, pressure and brown blood discharge. I also have suffered from chest pain, severe nausea and wheezing (even after treating it with inhaled steroids, oral steroids and a rescue inhaler. I saw my gyn who was surprised to realize it’s vanished into my body. The soonest they could get me in for an ultrasound to locate the IUD was 6 days out. I’m hoping they find it and it hasn’t done much damage!

    This was my second Mirena and the second doctor did not suggest I come back after a few months to be checked, like the first one. So now I’m wondering how long ago it’s been moving in my body. The doctor actually asked me if I wanted to have a 3rd one put in after they find the migrated one! A little shocking!

    I thought the same thing with my IUD.I was in pain, lots pressure and red to brown bloody discharge. I also have suffered from chest pain, severe nausea and wheezing even after treating it with inhaled steroids, oral steroids and a rescue inhaler so i went to the hospital and then they told me everything i was so sad… I went though surgery and i would not want anybody to go though that..I never thought that when i got the Mirena IUD that i would go though this…I know that i wouldn’t have did it!

    I had my mirena for 3 years and I thought it was the best BC method. I was wrong!!! Sharp abdomen pain woke me out of my sleep and then came a cycle. The cycle last for 22 days, after this annoying cycle I went to see me OBGYN doctor and performed an vaginal ultra sound. My Mirena was completely out of place and I had to get it removed. Now I am having dizziness. Have anyone had consistent dizziness?

    The IUD made me very ill. I had it in for 2 years to correct my periods-not for BC!
    I was woken up in the middle of the night with “severe” abdominal pain time after time! I was afraid to go to the ER! I didn’t know what was wrong with me! Plus I was getting ovarian cysts all the time! Went to Dr for sonogram. IUD was in place according to him! Well I fainted on 2 occasions which was very scarey! So I changed doctors and had the IUD removed! Never had pain or ovarian ducts again. It has been 18 months now and my life has changed!!! Mirena is evil.

    hi, I had a cooper coil inserted wrongly which led my 2fall pregnant with my son, after he was born I had the mirena fitted, it’s been nearly 3yrs now but for the past yr I’ve had bad stomach cramps but no period, although I have light spotting every so often & pain/bleeding after sex. I went to doctors who refered me 2gyn at hospital. I was told ill have an ultrasound but instead he jus felt my stomach &decided I needed surgery, I asked y? but he jus said, “I want 2have a look”. I had the surgery on valentines day (not very romantic) &was told they couldn’t c anythin so prob jus my coil givin me trouble although they Neva checked. a few months later, stil dealin wiv same pain I went back 2doctors who told me 2have a smear, so I did, &it came back normal. so went back 2docs &was told there’s not much I can do. I stil have the irregular bleeding &severe abdominal pain but through all this, my coil stil has Neva been checked. I’m now havin server pain &for the 1st time in over a year I’m bleeding for almost a week now. not normal. I’m confused &not getting much help. xx

    I started suspecting something was off with my mirena a few months ago, My anexiety got 100% worse started having chest pains, pretty constand nausia and migranes for days. Kept asking my Dr if this could be a side affect of my BC…she didnt think it was. Yesterday I had my yearly physical and she desicovered that my strings were missing so sent me off for a ultrasound to see if it was still in there. Well it was still in there but it became “misplaced” so now I have to go and have a OB go in there and take it out. This has been the worst experence I have ever had.

    In response to Jessica:
    I experienced something similar. I had mirena for 5 yrs the first time n had no major issues but the 2 nd time i got it it didnt even last a year i began to notice the strings were coming further down n i has severe migraines n hot n cold flashes sweating n major nausea. I finally seen a neurologist thinking it was something more serious n i also made an appt @ planned parenthood where i had it placed the 2nd time. Once the Doc checked they said i was right it was no longer in place but it luckily wasnt further up. Either way i havnt been on birth control since just condoms n an occasional plan b but now we were planning on having another child but im afraid maybe it might hav messed me up before id get pregnant right away wven after i had mirena 5 yrs i got pregnant immediatly after n now its been harder for us to concieve n it was barely a yr it was places b4 moving .Wondering if it has anything to do with it.

    My Mirena has moved and I cannot find any information on if removal is free. If it has moved I don’t think I should have to pay for it, that should be the responsibility of the company. I have had a few times where I felt a sharp pain but it didn’t last and they are random, I have also suffered dizziness and pretty frequent headaches, but I had no idea where this was coming from. After doing some research I think my Mirena moved a long time ago and I just wasn’t aware of it. I really hope removal is free because I am scared and I cannot afford to pay to have it removed.

    I’m 16 i got the mirena after a doctor pressured me into believing it was the best way to keep me from having reoccurring ovarian cysts, now its been about 6 months later ive been to the e.r 2 times with complications due to the mirena and my obgyn refuses to remove it or to admit its displaced, i woke up last night with severe sharp pelvic pains and brown discharge, and then i kept throwing up.. the earliest the can get me in its tomorrow. When i got the mirena the doctor did not make me aware of the risks of getting it.. i wouldnt wish this kind of pain on my worse enemy.. I hope by tomorrow its not too late and theres not too much damage done,

    I am now in the position where my doctor could not see my strings. She had to give me a referral to get a sonogram done to locate the IUD. I hope and pray that they find it, and that no surgery is required.

    I have been feeling something poking m and some sharps pains the past few weeks.I have had my IUD for 3 yeats now and this is my 3rd one (no problems before). I decided to go see the OB yesterday just to make sure everything was ok, but the Dr. could not find the strings, I will be having a sonogram tomorrow and will see the Dr. after that. Trusting God that everything is ok, but I will request the removal of my IUD regardless of what he says.

    I recently had my mirena remove because I was having really bad pain, dark brown and black discharge, very bad mood swings, hair growing on my face. With my first Mirena I did not have ant problems. My second Mirena has caused me great pain. I went for my Wellness Women examination the doctor located my Mirena but since I was in pain she ordered any ultrasound to see what was causing the pain. The finding was my IUD had traveled down to the head of my crevice.

    Hi ladies, I have been reading through your posts and hoping someone can offer some help/advice? I had a laparoscopy operation 14 days ago to receive Helica treatment to remove endometriosis and for the insertion of the Mirena coil. This was my 3rd laparoscopy but first fitting of the coil. I haven’t felt so crap in all my life. It took me a good 10 days to feel ‘normal’ from the op but I have been left with severe pain on my right side of my abdomen. I have back pain and red/brown bloody discharge. I was at the doctors yesterday and she felt my tummy and said this won’t be caused by the Mirena and that I’m still swollen and bruised from the op…. But I’m not convinced. When I bend over to put socks/shoes on, it is like I can feel something digging in on my right side. For those of you who have experienced the Mirena moving, what were your symptoms and do you think I have anything to worry about?

    I got the IUD placed in October of 2013 amd since then I have not stopped bleeding. I went and saw my obgyn and she told me this was just my new cycle and I would have tl live with it. Aftwr a year of this I started to pass large egg sized blood clots yesterday. 7 yesterday and 8 today. My normal dr rushed me into the office when I called her yesterday and did a string check as well as a iron count since I am anemic. The strings were gone…I checked them myswlf thw day before and they were there but when she checked thwy were gone. Now off to do an ultra sound and possibly do hormone therapy to correct my body.

    I have had the marina for two years now I’ve never had any complications last night me and my husband we having intercourse and after I orgasm and he wasn’t done yet we continue to have sex and he hit something 3 times and the pain I had was excruciating pain in my abdomen and above my public bone. I couldn’t move after we had sex I woke up this morning and I still have pain when I cough when I go to the bathroom what could it be could it be dislodged?

    After going to the Drs a month a go they told me my could was out of place and I needed to have it removed. I have an appointment on Tuesday to have it removed but I’ve been too and from the Drs with chest pains, abdo cramps, ahony during and after sex and now im thinking its all because my cool has moved out of place as alot of you guys seem to be experiencing the same problems, some days iys that bad I can’t do anything because of the pain and when you have a two year old you can’t just do nothing…. Its brought me to tears numerous times and I believe the dr should have noticed this sooner and taken it out as soon as it was noticed rather than making me wait for an appointment.. Im dreading the pain it may cause on Tuesday when I have ot out but im also looking forward to having it out to be pain free.

    Looking for info on possible issue with iud. This is my second mirena, first one didn’t have any issues, I am about 7 months into my second one and all of a sudden last night I started to bleed. I have not bled in 8 years, I did not suffer any pain or anything abnormal other than the bleeding. Husband I had sex earlier in the day and he said he felt the iud but there was nothing afterwords to indicate there was anything wrong. Could this just be a disturbed iud not a expelled iud?

    I’ve had the Mirena for almost half a year. I decided to get on the IUD because I suck at taking birth control pills, and I wanted my periods and cramping to stop. I feel bloated all the time and I still have pain and periods at random times when I start. I’m not sure if this is normal, considering that I’ve only had it for this long, but I hope I stop bleeding and cramping, completely soon.

    Hi, I had a Mirena fitted in Dec 2013, and after months of flooding and my enometriosis pain coming back, I asked to be referred to another gynae.

    I had major debulking surgery (laparoscopically) by the new gynae in March 2014, and a new coil fitted. However, the pain never went a way, and so I had some scans. It was found that the Mirena had perforated my uterus on insertion. I then had another laparoscopy in September 2014 in order to remove the migrated coil. Unfortunately when I woke from surgery I was told that they could not remove the coil as the Mirena was attached to my bowel and it was too risky. They left that coil where it was and then for some reason inserted another one.

    I’m now the (not so) proud owner of two coils; one of which is attached to my bowel. I will not be satisfied until the migrated coil is removed.

    I had my Mirena IUD put in October 31,2013 and I went in for a check up IN December 2013 and the doctor said, “she can feel my strings”. Well I still have my heavy cycles and long days of them, I have passed several clots the size of a golf ball at times and yes, they feel very uncomfortable when they pass. I went to the doctor for an annual check up and they checked to see if they could feel my strings from the IUD and I was told that they couldn’t feel them. That she had to set me up for an Ultrasound where they place this instrument in the vagina. They lady told me today that she couldn’t see the IUD anywhere. So she is really not sure if it came out when I was passing all those clots. So she is going to have to pass this information along

    I had my Mirena IUD put in over a year ago. On 10/23 i seemed to be having food poisoning from a meal i had the night prior, and from then on i had extreme, sharp cramping in my lower stomach. On 10/25 I started my cycle a week and a half early with very heavy bleeding. I would get my cycle on a regular time for 4/5 days max. After the first two days of extreme pain in my stomach and abs, the pain moved to my sides and ribs. After day 9 of my cycle i had to go in to my obgyn to see what was happening. When they did the ultrasound the results came back that my IUD was put in wrong. Not only that but it was broken and the pieces were in there. She could not take it out herself, so she said I have to be sedated to have surgery to get this removed. It. Its just so scary. I am afraid of this may harm me having other children in the future.

    This is my second time having the Mirena. The first time was 11yrs ago and it was great. After 5yrs it expired and was removed; meanwhile, after having my second child, my physician replaced it. I’ve had it this time for 2years and I’m experiencing a piercing, stabbing abdominal and lower back pain on my right side. I’m not sure if this pain is contributed to the Mirena, but I’m hoping to see my doctor soon. At this point I can’t bend offer to put on my shoes.

    Hi everyone, I have had my iud in for about 2 years now. I have never had any children but my obgyn told me it is okay to try the mirena. I figured okay no remembering to take a pill, change a patch, take the ring out, or weight gain. On top of that I was on the depo shot for a year before I got the iud so no periods still. Since day one of having it my abdomen pain as not let up nor stopped. But recently it has been getting worse. I have had minor spotting since I’ve had it but I recently had a full period. And after being on BC that thins my uterin walls for almost 3 years I shouldn’t have a period. But also when me and my fiancé have sex I cant “reach my goal” which is a problem for him. And I feel severe pains. I’m getting it out on Monday. I just would like to know if anyone else has experienced this. And if so what were their results. I want to have children. Me and my fiancé both. So I’m scared I won’t be able to.

    I am scheduled for a Hysteroscopy tomorrow because my Mirena, which I’ve only had for 2 months now, has moved up into my uterus. 3 sets of doctors over 2 days were unable to locate the strings using every possible method. Ultrasounds and x-rays show that the device is in my Uterus but they currently can’t tell if it perforated my uterus yet. But guessing from the amount of pain on my left side, it is starting to do damage. I had the paraguard for 3 years with absolutely no problems, but decided to switch to control my heavy bleeding. But now, with yeast infections, abdominal pain, and misplacement, I’d take paraguard back in a heartbeat.

    I had my mirena for three years. A little over two months ago I went into my doctor because I was having pretty bad side pain. The doctor said it seemed to be appendicitis. Took a urine test and he said that it was only a kidney infection and gave me meds for it. The next two months, my periods where irregular and I finally went in to see my gynecologist who confirmed that I was pregnant. The mirena is no where in sight and he believes it just fell out. Now I am having problems with bleeding and just feeling I’ll. Nothing like my other pregnancies. I think that mirena may still be in me somewhere.

    I have an my IUD for 2 years now. Ever since I had put in I have suffered from terrible lower back pain. I can barely bend down without getting stuck, I walk like an 80 year old with a walker, I can’t stand for long periods without my legs becoming weak, and I can’t carry or pick up my children. I never had any problems until I had the IUD put it in. I still get my monthly cycles but they last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Sex isn’t even an option, its painful, and I have no desire. I also suffer from severe cramps ALL THE TIME! It literally feels like I am being ripped in half all the time. I saw my DR and they said everything is fine, and my back is just weak. I recently had my husband check my strings and he couldn’t find anything, but I know the doc cut the strings super short. I’m not sure what to do, but I don’t think this is how I am suppose to feel.

    Had mirena placed around 2010 and bled a lot off and on for five months and then no period was great. I couldn’t lose the ten pounds from my child born in 2009 so I thought it was the hormones from
    The iud and wanted it removed. The sting had went upward and didn’t find out until doc tried removing. She tried and it hurt so bad! So decided to try second apt and I never felt so much pain in my life. I had to schedule hospital apt to be put out and I had paragaurd placed. I’ve had since June 2014. Heavy periods every month no biggy and finally settled down. I had sex last week with my fiancé and I’ve had a pokey pain towards urethra and needing to pee a lot. Tested for uti none treated with yeast meds thinking it’s that nope it still hurts. I’ve never tried feeling for strings before and not sure what I’m supposed to feel but the greenish discharge tells me this copper bs is bad and this pain is killing me. I want it out and never want an iud agin!

    I had my mirena put in, in December 2014. I haven’t had any problems with it until last month. My bf and I were having sex and I felt him hit it and it was a horrible pain in my left side almost maid me throw up. A couple days later I started getting horrible cramps that reminded me of labor pain and brownish red spotting. After a week of it seeming to get worse I called to make an appointment they couldn’t get me in for 2 weeks (my appointment is tomorrow) today I started getting worse and worse pain and every time I go to the bathroom I pass clots and bleed along with nausea I don’t know if I should go to the er or just wait for tomorrow. I’m worried sick

    I’m starting to believe that my iud may have moved, when I got my iud checked 2 weeks after insertion they said that it was low but will do its job .. I had sex about a week later and I have horrible pain when I was done and I couldn’t move .. It felt like I was getting “stabbed ” “down there” but it went away and I didn’t have a problem after that and it’s been months now. But now I’m so unbelievable moody and nauseous … And I can’t feel the strings , if my iud was low don’t you think I would be able to feel it ?

    I’m not sure if mine has moved or not. I had mine put in in October. I have had spotting (sometimes more) just about every 2 weeks for 2 weeks. I am moody, exhausted all the time & dizzy. Last night I was sitting in my recliner & when I went to get up I felt/heard a pop on my left side. Now I have this achy feeling there. Kinda tight, but not sharp pain. I’m due for my yearly in 2 weeks & am going to have it taken out. I’m wondering though if I should try & get in sooner. It seems to me like these doc’s only vaguely know how this iud works & the side effects. My doc told me the dizziness could not be the iud because it’s not listed as a side effect on the official website. I do have vertigo spells occasionally, but the dizziness is every time I lay down or sit up just about. Also it seemed like every appointment the time of how long spotting is gets longer. The whole thing is a huge hassle! !

    I had my mirena since 2012 after the birth of my second baby. I thought this is the best method for me to help with the heavy bleeding and for birth control.Its been good so before this past week.I couldn’t feel my strings and I never had that problem before and I alsoalso started bleeding rather heavy.I had some discomfort during intercourse and in my lower abdomen. I went to my ob on 7/8/15 to have anan ultrasound done.My strings are no where to be found but the IUD has moved alittle further in the uterus.He recommended me not to remove and that it’s still where it should be.After reading all of u all stories and different effects it has had has me wondering should I make the decision to remove it. Last yr I had dizzy spells that left mme barely standing and I never associated that with the IUD….so please give me some iinsightas to wat I should do…Thks.

    I had my IUD (mirena) put in on 3/27/08 and I had very bad bleeding,headaches, lowerback pains, and sex was just plain out of the question. I had this iud recommended by my Dr to help me with my functions tumors on the outside of my uterus, mind you I already had my tubes tied in 2004 after my last child’s birth Dec. 23,2003 so one day maybe 6months later this iud had came down to where I could touch the copper part with my finger, I mean it hurt so bad that I couldn’t even walk without stabbing pain in my private area, but anyway after talking to the nurse I went to my Dr and he said Oh,let me check and see if I have another mirena to replace this one and I said no sir just get this one out, then he did and pelvic check on me and look at your medical records I’m so sorry for all the pain and different things we’ve tried but you need and hysterectomy!!! Really. I’ve cysts on my ovaries. And so on. But I don’t wish this on anyone, so I say to you ladies /females. Please GET A SECOND OPINION!!!! .not only that, also do research on these products before we allow them to placed inside our bodies. GOD bless all.

    This is an evil contraption..i was convinced by a trusted doctor to have it inserted and I was knocked out for the procedure .. i had sharp, drop to your knees pain for months…was told to just let it ‘settle’ and that this was ‘normal’…2 – almost 3 yrs on Ive felt bloated everyday, sick most days, anxious a majority of the time, rectal bleeding as well as clotting from vagina, my moods were all over the place and felt tired, pains migrating to different parts of my body, basically feeling like my body was completely shutting down and im a healthy 29yo…i finally went to a different GP and insisted that she removed… the removal was the most painful experience of my life so far to say the least…a squid jag comes to mind… the bloating was almost immediately gone…my moods still havent quite stablised but hoping that will come… i would never recommend this device and would call for it to be banned.

    I just got my mirena uid yesterday, the 22nd. The procedure was quite painful since I’m only 15 & have never had a child. Had bad cramps afterwards, couldn’t even lay down because I would feel them get worse. Although, today has been a lot better; the cramps are barely even there. I just pray to god that nothing goes wrong during my experience.

    Hi i have had my IUD for about 3 months now. I am 16 and I got it after i had my son, which was a stillbirth. My doctor told me it was the best method for me becuase it would heal and make but uterus and stuff stronger. She also told me that it wouldnt keep me from having future children. After reading everybody’s comments im scared that because of the IUD that i wont be able to have future children? Does anyone know anything about this? Im very scared.

    I had the mirena for 3 years got it removed March 2015. My doctors always told me to stick my fingers up in me to see if i can feel the string. Yes, i always did. BUT I could barely sleep on my left side & when I did I could barely move it hurts so bad… Now I’ve been trying to conceive but nothing is happening I wanna know why.

    Hello Sarah, make sure your string is still hanging. If you can’t feel or find it. Yes it’s your IUD. It might of move around be careful with that… Always FEEL FOR THE STRING DAILY… If you can’t find it call your Dr. Asap

    I had the mirena iud put in a month ago, had a checkup Friday for an ultrasound to check to make sure it was in place and it wasn’t. I also was on a bad period so they couldn’t find it then they sent me for an xray of the stomach to radiology they couldn’t find it . But mean while I’m getting bad stomach pains diarrhea numbness on one side migraines nausea poor vision the chills. I hope it wasn’t hiding in a blood clot. Cause my clots were a size of my hand. Or maybe it’s a stomach bug I don’t know. They said it must have fell out with My heavy period

    I have had my IUD for 2 years after I had my son due to a blood clot. I haven’t had a problem with it till a couple weeks ago me and my boyfriend was having sex (it didn’t hurt while having it) but about 10 minutes after having sex I started cramping nothing to bad but then it hit me like a freight train I doubled over in pain I couldn’t stand up so he took me to the er. It took the er doctor plus an obgyn doctor to try to find it neither of them could so they did an xray that’s when they found it they said it just shifted up and not to worry about it cause its still going to do its job. But now last night my nipples started hurting I’m tired all the time no energy to do anything and having a 2 year old with no energy is bad they done a test at the hospital and it was negative I go to the doctor on the 3rd I’m going to tell her to take it out but is it possible to get pregnant if it just shifted up?

    I think with you using plan B more than once messes up your hormones. Plan B is a large dose of hormones that is only to be taken once in a while when needed. It makes your body change and can take a few months to bounce back to normal. Plan B is not back up bc. Its emergancy contraception to prevent the egg attaching to the uterus which makes the uterus shed which causes younto have a period within hours after use.

    I have been have cramping pains in my lower stomach but really no other signs, that other people are experiencing. But I did bleed, only a little bit, like spotting, for a little over a week. The week before I was still cramping and now almost two weeks after I was bleeding. I’m still cramping. I’ve been discharging for the same amount of time this has been going on. My doctor couldn’t feel or see the strings. And this also was a problem right after I had to put in, they could see them, I had an ultra sound and they could kind of see it. I go for an ultrasound Monday but I don’t know if I should or can wait because of the pain

    I got my Mirena put in at the same time I had my c-section with my daughter on May 18, 2015. Its now 6-7 months later and I’ve been having abnormal red-brown blood discharge. Today on January 2, 2016 I woke up in a small pool of blood in my sheet! This is totally abnormal for me! I have not made an appointment yet, for its Saturday and my doctors office is not open! I’m extremely bloated and have a slight headache. I would just use liners for a day or two and everything would go back to normal now its lasting a little longer and getting heavier! I think I felt it by the lining of my uterus so I’m definitely going to get this checked out and even removed! I cannot afford to be in the hospital especially with 2 children that depends on me!

    LaVonda- I also got my IUD placed when I had my c-section in Dec. 2013. I have been experiencing the same symptoms as you as of 2 weeks ago. I was wondering if it displaced because of the method in which it was put in. You are the only other person I’ve even heard had their Mirena placed during c-section. I hope we both find answers.

    I have had to IUDs with no problems. Until a few months ago I started having pain in my right side. The pain was like a cramping pain with a sharp stabbing pain every once in a while. I went in for an appointment and we thought it might be the gallbladder. Had my blood work and urine test done which came back with no issues. After the ultrasound (topical) we realized that wasn’t the case. My insurance wouldn’t cover the CAT scan and my doctor was trying for a PA. The pain became so severe I went to the hospital. I had the CAT scan done without and with the ink(?). I also had a vaginal ultrasound done. Between the two it was discovered that my right kidney was inflamed and my IUD had been “moved”. The strings were always in place and I only recently had started spotting every once in a while. I just thought it was hormones. I had my IUD removed and it was very painful. The first one came out really easily. I had also developed an infection in my right kidney and the hospital had given me treatment for that. However, I still have pain in my right side and am not sure if it is in relation to my IUD or something else. I’m also not sure how my IUD was displaced. I am not sexually active and have not been since before this IUD was placed. I am a single mother who has had three healthy children delivered vaginally.

    Well I got mine a year ago !! And I was so against it for many many years my gut always had a bad feeling about it than 4 kids later I trusted a doctor that convinced me that it is the best bc out there cause she wouldn’t tit my tubes cause I am too young she says .. Welp so far my pap test were normal prior and than I did one shortly after and my tests came back irregular and I went got the biopsy and sure enough I have to go back to remove a part of my cervix ?? I’m wondering now If it’s because of the Mirena … anyways about 9 months ago before the biopsy when we were doing the 2nd pap to test again she said I cant see the string … I got mad and it’s like my nightmare come true .. and they calmed me down by telling me if it did go out of place you would be in a lot of pain ….I went for am ultrasound and the lady said my bladder wasn’t full enough but she said she saw it faintly and it was In the right place but wanted to schedule another app … well me and my four kids all kept getting sick like a domino effect one thing after another … so didn’t make it … Monday night I started having cramps first felt like period cramps which I havent got for a year and they became worse and worse kept me up for 2 nights … today I feel better but still getting pain here and there no headache a little nausea and I went for an ultrasound today again my bladder wasn’t full enough …but I stayed until it was … if it were not in the right place the guy would have to tell me right ??!! I’m freaked right out and than I got a call from my doctor which they do a lot anyways but it was pretty late so now I’m worried they were phoning to tell me it wasn’t in the right place but I feel I’ve been lied to left right and centre she promised it doesn’t make you gain weight . I haven’t changed my diet and still do everything I did a year ago and I worked hard to be at a healthy weight …. and sure enough after 4 months of being in I started to gain weight and not slowly either and I read today it is a side effect !! I’m so mad and even if it is were it’s suppose to be I want it out immediately !! My question is even if it is were it’s suppose to be and the strings went up there how do theu take it out ??! Ugh I’m sp stressed about this !! I want to sue them for flat out lying to my fave about numerous things !! And if it is out of place I’ll be looking for a lawer !! They told me it was a 1 out of a billion chance … but what I’ve been reading every where tonight I call b.s . Anyways going to try to sleep through these cramps Hahn everyone thanks for sharing your story .. woman need to know this !!

    I just had my IUD removed today. I had it for 3.5 years and spotted almost every single day with it. I had sex with my husband 3 days ago and had awful pain right afterwards. The pain felt something like labor pains and lasted about an hour. I was doubled over and could hardly walk from the pain. I didn’t think anything else of it until I went to the dr. for a check up 2 days later and had a fever so I mentioned the pain to my family dr. He suggested that I go get my ID checked asap. I got in the next day and they couldn’t find my IUF so I had to have an ultrasound to find it. It was misplaced and so they painfully removed it. He said there was no telling how long it had been misplaced and he was suprisef I wasn’t pregnant.

    Like Jecca and Levonda my Mirena was placed with my C-Section on 21 August 2013. I bled for about 2 months after the birth and mirena was placed. Only spotted for 1 day in June 2015 -due to stress as my baby was in Hospital but no other periods or problems. Me and my husband had sex 3 days ago about an hour to 2 hours later I had a stabbing pain in my womb -I could hardly walk. Went straight to the bathroom as i thought something was wrong -but everthing normal. Took some painkillers and back to bed -tossed and turned for a while till the pain was gone. So I woke up yesterday morning to find that Im bleeding -not spotting bleeding!! I havent had a proper period since giving birth? Doctor said it might go away -so that was normal for me. I phone for an appointment and can only see Doctor on Monday afternoon. My question is -if the Mirena moved while having sex can i now be pregnant?

    I had the Mirena IUD in my abdominal cavity for 3 years!! I had it put into place by a doctor that sedated me to put it into place, I’ve since learned that is not the norm. I went back the very next day because I couldn’t feel any strings. I had an exam & ultrasound, I was told it must have come out. I felt that was strange since I did not see or feel it come out. I was put on birth control & that was it. I was in my early 20’s and my hormones were screwed up because I had the device inside me releasing hormones & birth control pills. I would wake up in the middle of the night with pain, like something was slicing into me on the inside. I experienced the pain driving & exercising. I had my suspicions and went to my family md that did an x Ray & found it inside my abdominal cavity. I had to have surgery to have it removed.

    I have been on the iud 2x this year. The 1st time it wasn’t found cuz it turned which wasn’t helpful so i had to get a vaginal ultrasound to locate it. So i had to wait almost 2 weeks to get it removed. It was almost a month i had it but it caused a vaginal infection that was one of the worst ive ever experienced. And i also had cramps that almost felt like contractions the pain was unbearable. The bleeding was somewhat heavy. It never went away it just decreased to very light brown spotting for days then it came back heavy. Tylenol or ibuprofen never helped. Now im on my 2nd iud for a month now and still bleeding, contraction like cramps, yeast infections. Small blood clots in toilet everytime but nothing major until today. I was taking a good cool shower a good 15mins when a huge blood clot came out, it was soooo disgusting. It hit the drain as the majority of the clot was washing away but still a huge clot as im staring at it i happen to see my iud is literally in this blood clot. Yuc so i put it is a ziploc bag and call my doctor which has left me on hold for 22 mins and finally tells me they will talk about it with doc nd she’s gona call me back and she did. I have to wait 10 days til the iud arrives at office. But im a bit iffy on getting it again. I mean this means cramping ,more blood, vaginal infections and not a guarantee for protection. So i asked my sister because shes an rn and she told me no. Get on the pills and that my body isn’t accepting the iud. She told me to care for my body. Cuz the doctors tell u anything. Since then my period has turned a lighter color and its runnier. And huge blood clots are coming out now. Im afraid it has puntured something and im bleeding blood nd not menstrual cycle. Im affaid to say whats the worst that can happen. Im going to the doctor tomorrow because i cannot take any chances. Theses r some reasons i Hate being a woman!

    I got mirena after my second baby was born. After only about 1.5 years I experienced abdominal pain one night, I woke the next morning with it growing in intensity & sweating. My husband brought me to the doctor where an internal ultrasound determined it had moved. They removed it. Now 2.5 years later I have been trying for over a year to concieve & cant. My doctor believes it’s scar tissue in my uterus caused by the iud, but I don’t want the medical bills of looking into it & correcting it… I’m a perfectly healthy 32 year old, I’ve had easy pregnancies & deliveries, there’s no reason I shouldn’t be able to expand my family.

    So I am on my second Mirena. The first one I had for 5 years. I recently got it removed and replaced with a new one two weeks ago. Just a few days after getting the new one I had really bad abdominal pain and severe bloating. Given I could barely feel the string I went to the docs and they they couldn’t find it when I went in. I had an ultra sound and turns out the Mirena is no where it should be. I actually go today to get it replaced with a new one. However, after this not being placed right (and I do not blame my doctor) I think the pill will be my best option. For whatever reason, it seems more women have issues the second time around. Not all women though. Some have a second one placed and they are fine. I believe all our bodies are different. I am lucky enough that I only have sharp pain and uncomfortable bloating.

  • Jaimie says:

    During my second Mirena.. I found that after not even a week it was really hard to breath esp. at night – I was very bloated and had serve sharp pain. It was because my IUD some how shifted out of place. As soon as you cannot feel those strings, the first thing you should do is call the doc to have them check it. I regularly check mine at least twice a month.

    It’s possible your IUD is not in the correct place and that’s why you are having “asthma”. However, if its been two years, chances are you actually have asthma. I never had it as a kid and when I got older I ended up getting a slight case of it. Our bodies will always change. Just like allergies, you can go your life not being allergic to peanuts and then one day you can’t have them anymore.

    I hope your apt went well and you get all this figured out.

This is the solution to every single mother around the globe. distance is not a barrier, he will surely make your dreams come trough.

    I got the mirana put in a little over a month ago. I was never told to come back in for a check up. The doctor cut the strings so they would coil up around my cervix. I have had severe shooting pains in my lower stomach. Mostly it’s on my right side but there are times when it’s my left or it feels like it’s my whole lower stomach. And they are crippling sharp pains. Sometimes they make me scream or grone bc they hurt as bad as actual labor pains. I also have a horrible milky like discharge. I had PID years ago and it went away on its own. Not sure if I should speak with a lawyer. But I’m deff having my IUD removed.

    Im scared too (41) i went to my doctor to get it removed she couldnt find it so i went to another obgyn doctor he pressed on my stomach and that was it. I didn’t have a ultrasound or x-ray. The reason i have this is because i have fibroids and the obgyn said it would help with the pain and heavey bleeding i told her i didn’t want this just give me a hysterectomy that way the fibroids won’t grow back but she said let see what this do first. The only thing she said could happen is it could come out that was it she even said she have one. I told her i have my tubes tied (claped) and one was removed due to a cyst that grew on it i just dont know why i couldn’t have what i wanted. Its been a 1yr since i had this i woke up and couldn’t see twice after i got it put in my head hurt all the time i have craps that come and go sometime i can’t work do to the pain but i go anyway. Im just tired i want this thing out of me.

    I recently have been experiencing excruciating pain in my lower left abdomen and lower back, along with nausea and brown discharge and some light headedness. Tonight I actually vomited (sorry if TMI). I went to ER a couple nights ago due to same pain. I explained to the doctor what my symptoms were and how I thought it could be a number of things…mirena moving, kidney stones, tubal pregnancy, etc. He was pretty rude and spoke to me/treated me like I was clueless and didn’t know what I was talking about…as if there was no such symptoms. I don’t go to hospitals unless I really feel the need to and this night was one of those nights. He just took urine sample and blood work and said it all looked ok…no concerns. So I called my primary to set up a ultrasound. I have it scheduled for next week so hopefully they can find something. This is my 3rd time on Mirena, the discharge started at the end of my first, but it was a different color and several gyns said the discharge was normal. The pain is so bad that I can’t find comfort in any position, including walking and pacing. Keeping my fingers crossed the ultrasound has some kind of answers.

    For the past few days ive been having cramping pain in my lower right side abdomen and i feel bloated. I also have lower right back pain in my back. I have light spotting and the more i move it begins hurting me. I am also nauseous at time. Ive had my Mirena for 5 years now amd my strings are a bit shorter…can it be the mirena?

    I got my Mirena on August 7th 2019. Within the last 2 weeks I’ve had pain right under my ribs on the left side and the pain travels to my back in the same area and down to my ovary. I’ve had brown bloody discharge every since I’ve had it and I cannot feel the strings. Does anyone know if this is a sign of it being misplaced?

    I got my Mirena about 3 months ago. I felt my strings to make sure they were in place a week ago and one was a little shorter then the other. I checked again today and one string is completely gone but the other is perfectly fine. Does anyone know what this could be beside it moving out of place

    I had a mirena inserted right after having a surgical abortion, as the doctors told me it was the best and cheapest option. So of course i listened to them. I then have had cramps every day for the last 5 months of having it, plus getting a mini period every 3 days and cramping and bleeding after s e x. I was never told to have a checkup after having it put it in.
    So i went to my regular doctor who sent me for an ultrasound and of course the mirena has moved!! Before my ultrasound i had 1 continuous cramp for 8 days in the middle of my tummy it didnt change in pain level.
    So now i am having it removed next week and i will 100% not have it re inserted. The doctors never told me of the risks of having this, im terrified I’ve ruined my insides and wont be able to fall pregnant when i am ready! Its so horrible to see so many people have gone through the same thing

    I had my mirena placed at my 6 week appt.after having my 4th son, i never wanted a iud but my doc didnt want to tie my tubes and said it was the next best thing , well fast forward 6 months, I just knew something wont right , Having 4 kids already i knew what was wrong, i knew i was pregnant!! I told my fiancee and he told me there was no way b/c i had an IUD …But i knew i was , i called my doc and she told me to come in and of course they couldn’t find my strings and my pregnancy test was positive so they sent me straight to the E.R for a ultrasound!! Well there was no IUD in sight but i was sure 7 weeks pregnant, so my doc said it must have fell out !!! Well fast forward again to now , I have a beautiful baby girl and had my tubes tied after giving birth!! But my IUD was never found and i would have known if it “fell” out cause where could it go besides the toilet or my underwear?? Now i have the most terrible periods , bleeding and cramping after sex!!! I really think its still inside of me and causing me all of these problems!!

    I’ve had a mirena coil for almost 2 years. I have never been able to locate the strings, I had scans and they showed it was in place, I asked the doctor to locate it and they couldn’t find it so I had internal ultrasound which located it elsewhere….nothing came of this. I then experienced sharp stabbing in my abdomen and bum area and bleeding for months with on and off infections. Due to covid I had to wait almost a year for removal. I went for removal and the string snapped and was told it was embedded. I then went for hysteroscopy and it broke, they removed the main part of it but the arms are embedded into my womb. I am now awaiting a laparoscopy to remove the rest of it. From the start I am sure it was never placed correctly. I have been in so much pain and had to take time off work.

    I have had complete complications after my IUD went through my iTunes into my abdomen. Because of COVID it sat in there for 9 months,
    I now experience headaches, dizziness, lightheaded episodes and confusion.
    I’m an having my estrogen levels tested but it has been ever since I had my IUD removed.
    Curious if anyone else has had this occurrence?

    This occurred years ago, but posting in case it helps anyone. I had the mirena for approximately 5 years. No issues at all until i started having unusual cramping. Went to doc and found out I was pregnant and recommended I remove iud. Made appointment to do so.. over the next few days started bleeding really heavily. Went back to doc and was told I was miscarrying. Next day went for a walk (still had iud) and got severe sharp pains and a pop sensation that doubled me over. I have a high pain tolerance. I finished my walk, with continued cramping but just figured it was part of the miscarriage process. Called doc to report and when in for ultrasound. I had fluid in abdominal area but they said it was likely cyst bursting which was normal and sent me home. Next day I’m feeling dizzy and my shoulder and neck hurting really bad. Called doc again and said I felt weak and shoulder and neck pain was intense. Explained I have a high pain tolerance so I felt with the pain something was really wrong. She told me it’s just miscarriage related and I can go to the emergency room if I was looking for pain meds. Essentially she made me feel like I was overreacting so I did nothing. My husband was out of town and I was home alone with continued neck and shoulder pain and feeling like I was going to pass out. Called my mom to pick me up to go to ER because I was afraid to drive and pass out. By the time my mom got there I was cold, tired, and really white skin. ER determined within minutes based on what I was telling them about blood test pregnancy numbers, pain, iud, etc that I had ectopic pregnancy with rupture. The pain in neck in shoulders was because my abdominal cavity filled with blood. They hooked me up for preparation of blood transfusion and rushed me for emergency surgery. Lost one Fallopian tube from rupture.
    Moral of story: iud and pregnancy coupled with pain, bleeding, shoulder/neck pain could equate to rupture and internal bleeding. The doctors told me that I would have not lived had I listened to the doc and not called my mom for ride to ER.
