I had the IUD put in about christmas time 2013. Very soon (within a week) I developed cramps so severe I puked. Another week passed and: thick, brown discharge (sometimes had a slight odor) appeared. After 5months I couldn't take it and had it removed. It has now been a year off of it and I STILL suffer from the severe cramps (which I NEVER ONCE had BEFORE the IUD) and the brown discharge. Has this happened to anyone else? If so, do you mind telling me what the diagnosis was? I've heard PID is a possible symptom from the IUD...

(of course I am contacting my doctor so don't tell me to do so) I would just like to hear of some other women's experiences with this as a severe lack of info from my doctors office put me in this position in the first place..
