Night sweats after fitting Mirena coil. Now cramps

HI The very night following having the mirena coil fitted i suffered severe night sweats , changing sheets 3 times in the night. Its now night six and last night i woke up drenched in sweat 5 times - ie its got worse. i am hoping this is a normal reaction to having a foreign object placed inside the body, but night sweats are not mentioned as a side effect . Pain is occasionally stabbing and flinch-making, but mostly very low level, like mild cramp . Im not worried about the pain, just the sweats. They are so obviously linked to the insertion of the coil, and yet not mentioned on the pack at all. Any advice??? Thanks

It'a also a possible side effect since Mirena has an hormonal component which is causing the increased sweating, it's important if this symptoms get worse everyday and become intolerable you visit your OBGYN to suggest an alternative method an get it removed. I also advice you comment with your doctor about the side effect not being in the label so they can submit an inquiry with the company.
