Some amount of cramping, back pain, painful intercourse, etc. may occur after Paraguard IUD.

These are known side effects and many women go through them.

However, the white discharge is not a normal side effect. This may indicate an infection.

Hence you should consult your Gynae for this. You need to have an infection ruled out.

An infection occurring after three weeks would be rare. However, if you have been having these symptoms soon after the insertion, then you need to see a doctor to rule out PID or pelvic inflammatory disease.
