I'm new here. Just got the Mirena coil fitted 6 days ago and my cramping is getting progressively worse. After fitting, the nurse warned I may have worse than usual cramping overnight, but should treat with ibuprofen and a hot water bottle. It wasn't too bad and did only last overnight. However, since I seem to get cramps after every meal. They aren't too painful and haven't required a hot water bottle or painkillers. Last night I was cleaning my house, bent down to pick something up, and when I stood back up I felt a sharp pain in my lower abdomen. Since then I've had cramps. They started off at about a 4 on the pain spectrum, so I treated with a hot water bottle. Now I'm taking co-codomol at work to get me through the day, and I'd say the pain is about a 7.
Has anyone had cramping last this long before after having the Mirena fitted?
