I had Mirena taken out Sept. 27th, & the 28th to Oct. 2nd I had a period (usually last 7 days). On Oct. 3rd, the bleeding stopped, but I have been having brown mucous like discharge up to now. What is this, should I be worried?

Thanks for posting your query.
The mild brownish discharge that you are having is the left over blood from your periods. After removal of Mirena coil, this is a normal finding. Please do not worry as this will subside on its own without any treatment over next 7-10 days.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
