Any moms out there with a Mirena?

I realize it may be TMI...But I was wondering if anyone could tell me how THEY did w/ it during the first few months of having it. I am experiencing more than the normal "spotting", and some strange discharge. But my doctor didn't seem concerned when I had my checkup a few days ago.

  • I had some spotting after I got mine and I had an odd brownish red discharge. They said that was most likely due to the antiseptic cleanser they use before insertion. I have had mine for about three months now and it looks like my spotting is over and done with. Good luck.
