I had Mirena inserted on Feb 21st. Prior to this I was not having a period due to Lupron injections. Since having the Mirena I have had some bright red spotting, but mostly a brown discharge that doesn't seem to go away. I am concerned about infection. I also have abdominal pain that comes and goes and feels menstrual like; reading here I see that a lot of you have had similar pain. Have any of you had this type of discharge and if so, what have your doctors said about it?
Yes I have had discharge almost since the IUD was placed, my doctor said some bleeding/discharge was normal. I have a hard time believing that now. Turns out I have an infection and am currently on heavy antibiotics. I had the IUD removed yesterday and my doc is very concerned. The lower abdomen pain is unbearable. I would set up an appoimtment and get it out if I were you and contact an attorney. I just talked to an attorney today and she thinks I have a good case. I am waiting to hear back from her once she does some research and gets more details. This IUD has ruined the quality of life in my household and someone should be held responsible. Hope this helps you ar least a little bit. I will be happy knowing that I've at least helped one person. Take care, Mamazoag
Thanks for the reply. I go back to the doctor in a few weeks. I will definetly ask some questions about this. Unfortunately for me this is one of my last options before getting a hysterectomy. I am only 33 and really don't want to resort to that, but I may have to in the long run. I see a post re: "Doctors being educated on Mirena" going to check that out now. I am worried about infection as well; my gut feeling is that this is not "normal". Thanks again...you have helped me!
Still having the same problems. Although the abdominal pain seems to come and go. I am seeing a chiropractor to help with the cramping. Just wondering how long this discharge is supposed to go on for? I know I should have it out before it's too late, but I have to try this before my last option which is a hysterectomy - I am only 33. Thanks for your reply...how is going for you since your last post?
I am having the same problems. i am 33 yrs old too, but i do not have other options. i am going for tubal ligation very soon. i see the doctor in a few weeks, since my cysts seem to be moving from one side to the other, and for some reason getting larger! hang in there and stay on your doctors case! god bless
