IUD and discharge

I have a copper IUD (Nova T380) for more than a year. I am experiencing a caramel-brown discharge most of the time. It doesn' t burn, smell, or any different from what my discharges were prior to the IUD. Periods are normal. I also don' t have pain anywhere. This brown discharge has been with me since my IUD was inserted, never before that. Is this cause for concern?

Yes, it could indicate an infection. See your gynaecologist.
