I have an IUD (the Maraina) birth control, only have had it for about 3 years and havent had my periods for about 2 years it just slowly stopped n maybe every now n then like 1 every 3 or 4 months I will spot a lil bit. I last had a Paps mere done last September. I keep feeling like I have to pee and barley go n I get a irrated kinda burn feeling n like cramps after I go a lil bit like as if I had a tampon in n its irritating to where it wants to push out. I also have a reddish brown discharge when I wipe.
You could well have a UTI or a vaginal infection or both. You need to see your Dr. asap to get it treated and to check for a vaginal infection at the same time. The bleeding can be the Maraina IUD-type reduced period bleeding and the irritation is probably due to the infection(s). You can get relief for the UTI symptoms right away if you have/get a product like Cystex. If you have to, you can run out to a 24/7 pharmacy if they are in your area. The name of the hormone on Mirena IUD is levonorgestrel. For more information on side effects, you can go to this link:
It's good that you're current with your PAP smears. They detect cancer of the cervix, the opening below your uterus.
