I have gotten Mirena in May. My spotting has been off and on. But this time i had dark spotting after sex. This is the first time he didnt use protection, but he didnt go inside of me. Instead he went on my stomach. Is this spotting normal?
You can have spotting on and off with Mirena. Spotting can be dark due to the IUD itself or due to infection. However, a dark discharge from vagina can be due to cervical cancer or dysplasia, fibroids in uterus, endometriosis, or due to a STD or fungal infection. You will need pregnancy test, ultrasound, STD panel and PAP smear for confirmed diagnosis. Please consult your gynecologist as soon as possible. Take care!
