Please help- mirena Question

So I just got the mirena IUD inserted today, and I am having really bad cramping. They feel like mild labor pains :( Ive taken motrin and tylenol, but they don't help. I just didn't expect it to be this painful! What is normal? Has anyone had these side effects?

  • I believe it is normal it happened to me when i had mine put in and also when i had it taken out 4 years later.

  • Yes, I had those same side effects, but the pain and cramping went away in a day or so; but I did bleed for about a month.
