IUD - Discharge
I have had a loop inserted two weeks ago and ever since I have had lots and lots of mucus-like discharge. I went back to the gynae for check up but he could not see anything wrong. No pain during intercourse. Is this normal, how long will it last any side effects that I should know of?? Ladies who are using the IUD please share your experiences with me...

The discharge could be infective, but then it should be smelly or have a colour. It could just be irritation from the IUCD and then it should settle later.
