Hello,
Welcome and thank you for your question.
No, constant vaginal discharge is not normal after the Mirena. If the discharge has a smell or it causes an itch, it is more likely to be due to a vaginal infection. Infections are very common with intrauterine contraceptive devises
Another cause for the discharge could be due to a condition known as cervical erosion. This is a condition in which the cervical cells undergo certain changes causing them to increase their secretions. It can clear up spontaneously or may need to be treated by electrocautery or cryocautery.
Please consult your Obgyn - you need your cervix examined and a vaginal swab sent for a lab test.
I hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
