what is this?

so I started using Mireana (IUD) over a year ago. I got the little bit of cramping and 2 periods and I have been feeling fine ever since. Than in the last few days I have been wiping and gotten a BROWN yucky discharge (like old blood). It's not just when I wipe tho either, it's also in my panties. Could the Mireana be causing this, or is it just a period?? I know your not Doctors to diagnose this so yes I have made a gynocologist app. but would like some help as to what this maybe is. THANK YOU!

  • Well, that happens to me occasionally also. However, I haven't had a period at all, just some spotting here and there. I think it's totally normal.

  • I'm that way too. I consider it my periods and that's it.

    It's good that you have an appointment, but I wouldn't worry too much.

  • most women get this occationally. It's normal so don't get worried. Actually most of the time its when your starting a period. EX. when your young and get your first period, it normally comes out a brownish tint the first time you ever get it. If you start a new BC it's also pretty common. I'm not sure medically why, but you could probably google it for that reason. But I do know it is normal.
