IUD discomfort after insertion

Patient: I recently got a hormonal IUD inserted (Mirena). Its been a week and I have some bad cramping and some discomfort going to the bathroom. Should I be concerned?

 

 

Symptoms: Cramps and discomfort urinating

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.Do not ignore the symptoms, there could be a possibility of displacement of the mirena a nd causing much discomfort. Please consult a doctor soon and an ultrasound may be done as well. In the case of complications, the doctor may need to remove it also.Hope this helped.Regards,
