Sounds like you need definately need to call your OB/GYN soon. It also sounds like there may be some PID involved because of the back pain as well. Mirena has that risk and it could have moved causing all the pain and bleeding as well. Mirena should have slowed the bleeding down not made it worse. If intercourse is painful it definately sounds like it may have moved so I would definately call your doctor soon. Are you running a fever too? If you are call the on-call doctor this weekend don't risk infertility from any damage this may have caused if it moved. I wouldn't have intercourse again until you call your doctor for safety. Good luck hope it is something simple.
