Mucus discharge after paragard IUD insertion

I had the Paragard IUD inserted yesterday. there was minimal cramping and bleeding afterward and I felt great. Well i just went to the bathroom and I have a ton of thick mucusy discharge now and while i was try to wipe it i felt really bad cramps. Is this normal? I'm going to call my OB in the morning I just need to know right now for peace of mind.

  • It's totally normal. It's gross and irritating, but normal. That'll happen for a while (not the cramps, the discharge) and by the time a few months pass and you're about to wonder if it's TOO irritating to handle, it'll stop.

    I have the Mirena and my friend has the Paraguard. That happened to both of us.

    As far as the cramps, that's just from the insertion and should be gone in a few days. If it's not or the pain worsens, call for an appointment.

    Also, call if you get a fever or heavy, heavy bleeding.

    Other than that, it all sounds normal.

  • IDK... I have Mirena, and that didn't hapen to me. Find out, woman! :)
