i've been having a disgusting odour 'down there' a little spotting and slight bloating since having the mirena coil fitted just over a week ago. It's not fishy like with BV, nonetheless, it is repulsive and I'm aware of it - especially in the gym. Im not sure if I'm a bit down in the dumps too.

Will this all go away - including the smell - soon? or should I make an appointment to get it removed and go back on the Femoston. I was Okay on the Femoston - just had a bit of breakthrough bleeding/erratic periods. I was on 2mg.

It could be the odour from the spotting but I would see a doctor and get a swab done in case of infection.
Bloating and down in the dumps goes with the Mirena, I got that to begin with but it did settle and only happens from time to time now.
I don't think you need to rush and get it removed unless you really won't to. Why did change to the Mirena if you were happy with the Femoston?

I've had spitting before, but it's never smelled like this? How long did it take for the smell to go with you?

Thanks NK. I changed because the gynae recommended it as My periods were erratic and I was getting facial flushing and night sweats so thought I needed a higher dose of oestrogen. I've put about 4kg too this last week!! How long do you think I should wait?

Spotting, not spitting grin

I'd go and get a swab. It could be a slight infection from insertion, it can happen. Get it checked.

First couple of weeks post iud fitting is a common point to get an infection. It sounds like you have an infection. You can get a swab done at your local sexual health clinic or by nurse at the surgery.

I've asked my doctor to call me back today, couldn't do anything while the kids were on holiday. It's not as bad as it was, but still there. My bf said he noticed it blush. If it is an infection it's weird because it started more or less straight away after it was inserted.
