IUD-DISCHARGE
I inserted the copper IUD two weeks ago. I was on my period and when my period stopped, I started getting this yellow discharge. It doesn't smell. It's just icckkky, its mucusy, really, it resembles snort. I went back to the clinic last week and the doctor examined me and told me that it is normal. Its because the uterus was disturbed bla bla. And that it will go away. Is this true??? Please I need help. I've just started seeing this guy and I don't want to scare him away, he might think I've got an STD. Which I don't.

A mild disharge for a short while after insertion of an IUCD could be normal. If it persists, it probably means that you have an infection. There is a higher risk of infections with an IUCD and you would then have to see your doctor again.
