Mirena insertion, lower right abdominal pain, diarrhea

Patient : I had the mirena IUD inserted two days ago and have been having lower right abdominal pain and diarrhea for the entire day today. I am wondering if this is normal and/or related to the IUD in anyway. I also want to know if I should call my doctor in the morning, go to the E.R., or wait and see if the pain resolves itself with time.
Symptoms:  Diarrhea, lower right abdominal pain, recent insertion of mirena IUD.
