Brief Answer: remove mirena Detailed Answer: Hi, it is possible that you could be having infection. Please visit a gynecologist to get mirena removed immediately. Wait for 3 months before taking decision to reintroduce mirena. If you still feel pain after one month of removing mirena, please get an ultrasound of pelvis to check endometriotic cyst or pelvic inflammatory disease. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol.
