Any odor needs to be evaluated by your gyn. I had mirena for over a year and never had any issues with odor. Generally odor can indicate an infection and with mirena that eneds to be taken very seriously.
Don't do a phone appt, get in to be seen. Ask them to test you for STD's if you are questioning your dh's fidelity. This is something you don't want to gamble with as infections with an iud can impact your future fertility and cause a lot of other problems if left untreated.
its definitely the EVIL mirena!!! i had the mirena placed after my son was born May/09. Instantly after the mirena was placed, i started noticing a foul odor. After 10 months of horrible side effects from Mirena including the odd odor, i finally made the best decision of my life and had it removed.
24 hours later... NO foul odor anymore!!! Dont listen the the doctors... they will tell you that it has nothing to do with the Mirena. It does! take it out ASAP!
dont think everyone is cheating, but i do think this mirena is killing us!!! i get the odor and discharge as well.... further more i want it removed asap!!!
I was thinking the same thing. I got Mirena after I had my daughter in December. Went for my 6 week check up and she talked me into getting it. I know it was stupid of me to agree not knowing anything about it. I never get into anything without knowing details. I had to deal with bleeding for about 2 months, afterwards I noticed a strange odor and discharge. I am going back for my next check-up next week and I am going to have it removed.
I had mines placed in June 08 after my 6weeks checkup, I was looking for an effective bc method instead i found a problem. Experiencing the infections and the stomach aches, the ordor, and the long adjusted monthly periods, I am tired. It isnt worth it, all of these discomforts to prevent pregnacy, hell no, am taking it out.
I had my mirena put in on october 18, 2010. Its been a nightmare ever since.iI've had it in place for only 4 weeks -im taking it out on monday. Ive been bleeding/spotting the entire month, backache, bad odour, mood swings..ect...I cant wait for the weekend to be over so that i can have it taken out and i hope everything is good:d
