Does anyone else have funny smelling discharge after their mirena insert? Is it a normal "chemical" smell or should I be worried about infection?

  • How long have you had it? You will have discharge with it - it works by irritating your uterus and the discharge is your body's way of trying to get it out - but it shouldn't smell fishy or rotten. I'd call your doctor if you've had it longer than a couple of days. Before that, you may just be smelling the cleansers your doctor used before he/she inserted it.
