Pain during intercourse with IUD, continues after removal


I had an IUD (Mirena) put in place in early February and all was well for 2 weeks. My partner and I were having intercourse and I had a LOT of pain. The pain seems to originate from my uterus, it's a sharp, throbbing pain that will dissipate after a few minutes (assuming we stop having sex).

After this happened a couple of times I went to my Dr and had the IUD removed. Unfortunately, intercourse continues to be incredibly painful. More over, it seems to be getting worse.

I've had the pelvic ultrasound done and nothing showed up other than a small dermoid on my ovary (that I've had for years and has grown only very slightly) and a small amount of fluid indicating a burst cyst. My only other piece of information is that I've recently gone on progestin-only birth control (like Mirena) which is a change from my previous birth control.

I am seeing a specialist in 2 weeks but if anyone has thoughts in the meantime, let me know!

Re: Pain during intercourse with IUD, continues after removal

I just wanted to say that I had my IUD put in in October of 2004 and ever since I have had the same sharp shooting pains during intercourse as well.. I have had many other problems with it, including bleeding and pain lasting for sometimes as long as a half-hour after intercourse. I was hoping when I got it removed that the pains would go away, but they have not. I really appreciate you posting this because it allows me to see I'm not the only person with these problems! I no longer feel like a woman! I have not been checked yet to see what's causing this, but I KNOW it has to do with the IUD now, and I really wanted to say Thank You sooo much for informing us all Please feel free to write me anytime if you want to talk about it or if you possibly have some new information..
Thank You,
