Kind of embarrassing question? adult content

So my son is 8 months old and I got mirena put in at my 6 week check up. My periods are very irregular and it seems like before and after my period I have a really heavy discharge that has a slightly strong smell. Is this normal or is something wrong?

  • Any type of smell (foul) usually means infection. Id just talk to your dr or by the over the counter testing kit for vaginal infections

  • I would make an appointment with the gyno is make sure that everything is where it should be, your mirena could have slipped and is causing irritation, or you could have a mild yeast infection.... Only your doctor can tell you, but definately make an appt soon.

  • I agree that you should get seen. Foul odor is usually indicative of infection, and the sooner you can take care of it, the better.
