I had Mirena put in 5 days ago and ended up in the Emergency Room today to have it removed after severe pain just about since insertion - they diagnosed PID which would have to be a direct result of the IUD since A) I had no STDs going in and B) did not have sex between insertion and now. I couldn't have sex even if I wanted to, I've been in severe pain since the day after placement. I understand it's rare but I am grateful I listened to my body (symptoms: EXTREME pain, doubled over and crying kind of pain) and went into the emergency room to get it pulled. Removal doesn't hurt at all, I was grateful to have it out. Pain in still there and I get 2 weeks of antibiotics for my trouble. Would never recommend Mirena to anyone but to each her own and for some it works wonders. Do your research before you let them do this to you is my only piece of advice.
