discharge and abdomenal pains

I was diagnosed with dysfunctional viginal bleeding 2 years back, had a fibroid removed from my uterus last year and had an IUCD ( mirena) inserted. i haven''t gotten my period since the insertion ( 13months back) but I have a white discharge sometimes it''s pinkish, it doesn''t smell. I have to wear a pantiliner all the time, I use up to 4 a day for this discahrge. I suffer from chronic lower abdomenal cramps radiating to my lower back and around my anus. Sometimes they are so bad i miss school. Help.

It is normal not to have periods with the Mirena and a pinkish discharge off and on would also be normal. However, abdominal pain and a discharge suggests an infection. See your doctor to assess.

Hi. Sounds like you need an antibiotic. First let gynae do a swob, and then once you''ve got the results, he can pescribe some meds. Don''t forget to have another swab done a few weeks after you''ve stopped the meds to check if it''s all clear.
