Cramping after exercise - Mirena?

I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this... I had my Mirena fitted in November, and 2 months ago started a PT programme. The first 6 weeks were absolutely fine, but for at least the last 2 weeks I get really bad abdominal cramps that come on about 1-2 hours after my session ends, and today I also got some spotting too. It's awful to the point where I'm doubled over and using hot water bottles & painkillers.

The rest of the time I am symptom-less, it's only after exercise that I get the pain. I have no other symptoms such as discharge, etc.

Any ideas what this could be? I have a telephone apt with my GP but it's not until next Friday.

Any advice appreciated xx
