Brief Answer:
Medical attention and visit to doctor required.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for posting your query.

I think medical attention is must.

There are chances of :

Pelvic infection
Local infection in genitals
Might be some displacement of device.

Please visit your primary care physician or gynecologist and get yourself examined.

Normally Merena is well tolerated by all,still as your are having problem medical attention is mandatory.

Please see your doctor.
