    I am 26 y/o female who had a Mirena inserted in August. From august to october I had the UID,and had problems the whole time it was in. From day one I was told that some moderate spotting was usual for the first 6-8 weeks. I did have that but also had extensive pain. I finally had enough and the pain was to much to deal with. I went to my dr and was told that I had a bacterial infection and was treated with the antibotic, Flagyl, went back in 1 week and was told everything was cleared up but still had problems so I had it removed. Since then I have had no problems, but recieved a itimized statement and relized that my culture came back as clamidia. I have been with the same man for 8 years and no one else and he has had no STD'S or any problems of any kind. My dr didnt tell me any of this nor did I recieve any letter from them. Is there any explanation for this to have happened. Need to know something because my marriage depends on it. Thanks
