I have had my mirena IUD for almost 3 months now, getting a period every month.. but this month my period blood is a weird brown/red color.

I'm not completely concerned, but I would really appreciate some reassurance . I have had a pregnancy but haven't given birth. Sorry for the personal details but I really need to know.

Brown/ red discharge while using Mirena IUD is one of its most common side effects. It is caused by hormonal disturbances or vaginal infections. If the discharge causes discomfort, then you should visit your doctor for more help. Go to for details.

Infections? Like an STI? Cause my partner and I have both been checked and we're clean.. Or do you mean something like a urinary tract infection type of thing? Because I do In fact have one right now.

The brownish red period blood does not have a foul odor, and the website says it usually does.
