Thanks for posting your query.
IUD is commonly associated with side effects that you are facing and most of the times these symptoms do settle spontaneously in 4-6 weeks without any treatment.
Some of the common side effects are
Irregular menses, i.e either more bleeding, less bleeding or no bleeding or spotting. Vaginal itching or infections.
Headache, dizziness, cold and flu symptoms.
Stomach pain, irregular motions, nausea .
Mood swings, depression
Acne, weight gain/loss, breast engorgement.
So if you are really uncomfortable visit your doctor and get yourself evaluated.

Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

My pain still seems to radiate rom my uterine area. im sure they have checked and double checked but could the iud have been place improperly causing my two weeks of unrelenting pain?

Hello, I am 35 and have had a Mirena IUD for 4.5 years now. For the last 2 months I have been experiencing strange symptoms: constant breast tenderness/swelling, irregular bleeding/spotting, tired often, weight gain. Could I be pregnant? Are my hormones out of order due to age changes?
