Hi, mine got lost too and i didn't even notice. I believe what has usually happened is that it's simply out of position, i.e. the threads are no longer coming through the cervix. I had a hysteroscopy and they fished it out, putting in a new one at the same time.

If it has traveled further, I think you'd be in a lot of pain. If that happens you should go to A&E, but I believe it's rare.

Try not to worry, it may well not be serious. The Mirena shows up in an ultrasound so they will be able to tell you its position.
