the symptoms that you describe are not usually associated with the mirena IUD. occasionally an infection might occur at the time of insertion, and it sounds like you were treated for that possibility when you had the antibiotics. it is possible that you are still in pain due to infection if the infection didn't respond to the antibiotics. that could've happened if you had an unusual or resistant organism causing the infection. I would imagine that they did cultures, and if this was the case then they should find it in the results and then thy would know which antibiotics to use. we now know that infections can be treated even without needing to remove the IUD. if they can't identify another organism, and the problem still doesn't improve, you will need to discuss with you doctor if the IUD should be removed anyway, or maybe they can identify another cause of the pain that is not associated with the IUD. I hope this helps, please let me know if you have any more questions,
