Please reach out to your doctor. Strangers on the internet can’t tell you what’s going on.

Definitely go see a doctor to be sure. They can usually do an ultrasound to make sure that the IUD is in the right place. I have an IUD and very painful cramps would worry me. Only your doctor can tell you if it’s normal or not, though.

I have a different brand, but 2 months after my IUD was put in I had only very mild “rolling cramps”. They seemed to be random (have since synced with when my period would be), but i was warned by a relative with a medical backgound that she had very ocassional short stabbing pains for a the first 6 months. Every day sounds like overkill though. If the last longer than a few seconds or its happening multiple times  a day, I would call your doc ASAP

pain is very subjective and therefore what someone might describe as “very painful” might be “period like cramping” to someone else. if it’s worrying you then you should make a follow up appoitment. FWIW, I have Skyla… i had more on the painful range of period feeling cramps for about 3 days post insertion. then over the next few months i would have occasional menstrual cramp feelings. my doctor had me come in regardless at 6 weeks post insertion to make sure it was in the correct place and to talk about side effects etc. she told me it can take up to 6 months for your body to really get used to a foreign body in there. however, if you are concerned about the pain definitely make an appt.

Did you end up going to get an ultrasound? I got my Kyleena in July and my first month I had the worst cramps of my life bascially every day. I told the OB, and they did the ultrasound and everything was in the right place. She told me it was just part of my body getting used to some foreign object in my uterus and that it’ll calm down soon. She was right. I still get cramps but not bad enough for advil- just enough to be annoying.
