I never had the mirena my sister in law did she had issues similar to what you are describing so you might want to have the doc check it out, Hers started getting inbeded in the utern wall it wasn't supposed to.

I had a mirena, but had a different problem. I started getting large painful cysts on my ovaries. The OB who put it in insisted that it wasn't the cause, but I knew better. In addition, the side effects even state that this can happen. The OB put me on narcotic pain killers that made it hard for me to function in my job and at home. I went to a different OB and had it removed. I now use the ParaGuard IUD which is hormone free. No symptoms and it lasts 2x as long (10 years).

I think I'm just going to get it removed. I took a test and (thank goodness) it was negative. Either way, I don't like the fact that I can't feel the strings or the thought that it could move around without my knowledge... I'll probably get it removed and get the implanon instead so that I can definitely feel where it is at all times!
