What causes terrible cramps and stabbing pain in the abdomen having the Mirena coil inserted?

Given your symptoms, it is important to rule out pelvic infections and misplacement of Mirena IUD. Pelvic examination, vaginal swab culture, pelvic Xray. Ultrasound are recommended at this point. So please follow up with your ObGyn for detailed evaluation.
