Whats up it this brown discharge?

I've had the Mirena IUD for about 7 months now and all was well, until I started having brown discharge. The first time it happened, I didn't think anything of it...because I started my period right after. Fast forward to today, and the discharge came back...I probably shouldn't worry, because of what happened last time, but I still would like to know why this happens. Anyone know?

  • Sometimes that is all the more period you get. That was all I would get around my monthly cycle. If you are really concerned about it, you can talk to your doc about it.

  • I have had my Mirena about 4 years. Every few months or so, there is no rhyme or reason to it, I will get some brown spotting. I figure I never have a period, this is just my body saying, hang on a second lol something is suppose to be happening but isn't! lol. It's probably just out bodies "period"
