Yes you should. The discharge also neds to be checked to make sure there is no infection. Take antispasmodics for pain relief, and meet your doctor at the earliest.

welcome to healthcaremagic
as per your information it may be that manipulation did cause some spasm of the uterine muscle and causing pain
persistent pain might be due to some infection

consultation with treating doctor and check up for proper treatment required
hope you are doing fine now

I went to have a Mirena Coil removed today (had it for 5 years). It could not be found & so I will be referred to the hospital for it to be removed surgically. I am completely against this - I am 44 and have never had a day off work or been in hospital. What will happen if I simply ignore it and leave it where it is. It took an awful lot of courage to have it put in and make the appointment for it to be removed and am finding this a little distressing.
