is it normal while having a IUD and having a discharge watery and a strong oder

Well I had a period 1 time but spotting happens for a while , I've had painful breast and acne (hormonal ) but nowe I feel insecure to have sex with my boyfriend, I'm scared he might smell it too . I've treated it with plain yogurt for 5 days which clears up infections and that wasn't it . Is this normal to have this smell while on the skyla IUD?

That sounds more like BV (bacterial vaginosis). This is a common overgrowth of bacteria is the vaginal area. Go to your doctor. They can do a swab to confirm BV and then treat with antibiotics such as flagyl. Hope this helps!
