IUD symptoms-anybody relate?

I have a Paragard IUD. had it for 2 yrs now..I seem to be wet most of the day,or have a slight amount of discahrge come out. It usually doesnt smell,rite nowit does for some period has been changing dates last couple of months;last month it was 11 days late! the PG tests said NO (took 3).so im just wondering how many others have these symptoms or diff. ones. im considering taking it out b/c the discharging is very emabarrasing to my sex life! (i have to clean before doing anything!) *if u cant say anything nice-dont say anything at all!

  • You aren't supposed to douche. It's bad for your body so you might have an infection from that. Other than that, my gyno said that a little light bleeding is common for IUDs. I have Mirena and I'm pretty happy with it.

  • no, i dont douche-that stuff is unnecessary. i just take lots of baths (no soaps) and wip with a wipie before my bf comes over. when i DO get my periods,they are heavy heavy! i go thru a super tampon an hr!!! has anyone gotten pregnant? did a test say negative?

  • No pregnancy that I know of. If that isn't normal for you then you should go talk to your gyno cuz there might be an infection or maybe there is something wrong with the IUD. Do you check your strings monthly? If you can't feel the strings then it might have fallen out or something. My gyno said that some women lose their IUDs and never notice. Are you in any pain?

  • actually the Dr that put it in never told me to check the strings! it was when i went in for a checkup at my local Health Dept. that he asked me and i said "I didnt know i was suppossed to be checking them!" but i did check today,and i feel the string in the middle-but i also feel the IUD,so i think its slipped or tilted or something! im gonna go to the hospital Monday to get it checked out b/c its starting to bother me. i have symptoms of it moving or an ectopic i need to get checked and get it over with! ill be sure to let ya know!
