Hormone levels drop: In the 5th year of mirena, (levonorgestrel) the hormone levels drop. Have you checked the string to be sure that it hasn't been expelled? If it's still in place, i wouldn't worry, but would be sure to have it changed at 5 years. ...Read more

So I have not gotten my period yet but I have gotten some red and brown discharge in my underwear. What does this mean? When I wipe nothing is there just little yellow discharge but in my underwear it is brownish red what does this mean?

Do you mean: Do you mean that you have been having periods and this one is late or that you haven't started having periods at all. These are 2 very different questions. If this ia a late period, pregnancy is possible but if you are 17 and haven't started having periods at all that could be more serious and you need to be seen and checked out for the possible cause. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Pregnancy: Implantation of the fertilized egg occurs between 6 and 8 days after conception so the bleeding she had is probably too soon for implantation bleeding. She apparently then had a period and this would argue against her being pregnant. However, sperm can live in her body for up to 5 days and pregnancy can occur anytime during the menstrual cycle. Get a pregnancy test. ...Read more
