I beleive it does cause joint pain. I had my mirena for 2 years of that I had hip and joint pain for 1.5 years. I had the mirena removed because it was causing bleeding and suddenly my joint pain disappeared. Google Mirena and joint pain, you are not alone. The maker of mirena is just not sharing this side effect.
