Mirina IUD: Mirina IUD's when removed should not influence your cycle. If the "5 day period" on Nov. 11, was at a normal time, and you were "regular" (28-30 days apart) prior to the removal of the IUD, it is unusual to have "50 days later" a dark discharge. Get a serum HCG test (quantitative) and an ultrasound exam to be sure you are not pregnant outside of your womb. See your healthcare provider now.
