marina and pains

I had the marina fitted 6 months ago as i had very heavy, irregular periods and bad endometrioses. Since then i've hardly had a period, more like one day with just a brown discharge.
I have had pains in my lower, left side of my stomach, very low down. At first I thought this was my colon as I have a spastic colon which gives me trouble almost everyday, but now its getting really painful and I'm not so sure. This is also a bit embarassing, but I had sex for the first time since having i had it fitted, a few days ago. The day after I had alot of brown discharg, it looks like blood, and still do, the pains are very bad today, so i'm a bit worried. Is this normal with the marina? Also, is it 100% effective with preventing pregnancy? Is it possible for it to fall out?

Thank you

It is normal to have no or very light periods with the Mirena. The fact that you had ' bleeding' after sex needs to be checked on. I can't really tell from this side of the screen what is causing your pain, so your best bet would be to see your doctor. The Mirena is 99.5% safe in preventing pregnancy. It can fall out but this would be uncommon.
