so if there is no pain...it's not PId
i do get pain. not all the time...a few times a day. im fine and then i get a shooting line of pain right in the middle of above my vagina...then it goes away just as quick
can you feel the stings?
yes....i dont feelthem but the dr yesterday said she could
ok. is this the mirena or paragard iud
i dont like sticking anything up me as silly as that sounds
ok. how long had you had the original mirena in before you started having trouble?
i had my 1st one in for 5 years and never had an issue.. i had my second in for 3 years and thats when the smell and discharge started....that was taken out and this one has been in for about a month and a half
any new partners
no havent had sex in almost a year
not common, but some women will have discharge with the mirena and even the vaginal rings.
the part that doesn't make sense is the time frame
even after never having discharge before?
you didn't seem to have any problems and then all of a sudden...
so, that makes me believe it's something else
and the smell...and crazy colors of the discharge is ok?
is the smell with the dark discharge like death...I know that sounds funny, but you would know for sure
yes around january they treated me for yeast and then said no its BV...twice treated for BV.......actually was treted for BV about 2 years ago as well....the smell is I dont know...it makes me gag a little...i wouldnt say death but its bad and gross
If you were my patient..I think I would look a little deeper into this.
this is not normal and I have placed a ton of IUDs
abnormal bleeding and spotting is pretty common.
foul odor, discharge is not
I would suggest having it removed and the IUD cultured
I would also have you get an ultrasound to look for growths inside the uterus
I would also do a basic panel for bacteria and yeast...this would be a culture
i have state insurance and not many dr take it. The clinic i can go to really keeps dismissing me and blowing me off. I asked them to remove it yesterday and they told me to wait. that they just placed it and i need to give it time..
believe it or not there are resistant strains of yeast to the most common treatment we prescribe.
i know the whole world is poor right now but single mom no help money wise from dad where do i go to get someone to run tests on me?
If you are not sexually active I would demand it be taken out and cultured
planned parenthood should be able to take it out and culture it for you
they should also be able to run the tests on you and set you up with a pill if you wish
thats where ive been going and they dont seem to think there is a problem. i know bodys change but ive never bleed or had discharge like this with my 1st IUD.
well...I agree, this does not sound normal to me.
i know this sounds strange but ive also been breaking out like crazy my face my back my legs that couldnt be related could it?
that's usually a hormone thing rather than the IUD
ok thank you. i will make another appointment with planned parenthood and try to get them to take it out and test it. i doubt they will send me for an ultrasound. if it comes back positive for something just trat it and i should be ok?
you're welcome...I wish you the best.
take care and have a good night
