Had a mirena IUD placed. Getting watery discharge. Due to yeast infection?

I had a mirena IUD placed on January 4th. This morning while I was still asleep I had a watery discharge . When I woked I thought I had urinated at first. I had a baby in November and have had some bladder control issues since. However, I found that my pajama pants were wet, and there was a slight fishy smell. It was almost the smell I get with a yeast infection , but I am showing no other symptoms. Then after going to the bathroom I stood up and had another, smaller gush. It is definitely the consistency of water. Should I be concerned?

thank you for your query.
You could be having urinary incontinence, however the smell you described doesnt fit in.
Yeast infection would be a thick curdy discharge, not the watery gushy kinds you describe.
The appropriate cause here could be BV or Bacterial Vaginosis, which is also a kind of vaginal infection, characterized by profuse, watery discharge, which typically has a fishy odour.
You need to consult a Gynecologist, and have appropriate testing alongwith swabs to pinpoint the precise infection.
Do not leave pelvic infections untreated.
take care.
