Straight after sex I had cramping and pinky discharge with no really bad odour. I have a mirena (levonorgestrel) over a year. Been a week now. What's up?

Post coital spotting: Mirena (levonorgestrel) works in part by thinning out the lining of the uterus (the endometrium). Sex, especially if it results in orgasm, may result in some rhythmic contractions that may loosen some of the tissue causing spotting. Cervical irritation may cause the same.

It may be normal: If you are a young woman and you have never had sex (including oral sex), and have absolutely no other symptoms of an infection or gynecologic problem (itching, abnormal odor, irritation, sores, pains in your lower abdomen, abnormal bleeding), it may just be the normal discharge caused by hormones.

If not, you might then need a prescription cream or pill from your doctor. He or she might also check you for other things in there. ...Read more
