... Recently, I had sex with mild discomfort at first, just an uncomfortable angle maybe. After I had a brown, bloody discharge, like a period with cramping and lower back pain. The blood is now a brighter red. Is this normal? I was just so shocked to see anything at all. I don't know if the device has moved or shifted but, I can still feel what I imagine to be the strings or the Mirena itself
Meeshabella,,, This is not normal You should call the Doctor even though its good for 5 years they still say to have it check yearly in the info... But it is always better to be safe first. Just one thing i know when a period is missed with the pill the next month or two sometimes its a real dark color and that is because is old blood now that it is normal color sounds like it is not working right... PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR ASAP this is not normal. so better make sure and ask them if you are supposed to have a yearly exam. too i swear i read that... good luck...
