Am on Mirena, had unprotected sex, have brown discharge. Concerned

I have been on Mirena for almost 8 months now and havent had a period since a week after having it put in since I was on the Depo shot right before. I have been having unprotected sex and now suddenly I am having a period again it seems, but it is a brownish like blood and kinda heavy out of no where? I havent had a period in awhile so I am concerned for this sudden apperance and because it looks almost like what my periods did when I found outI was pregnant before? What could this be? Should I had the Mirena removed?

Thanks for the query.
As you are on minera there is less possibility for pregnancy.
Minera can cause side effects like amenorrhea, irregular spotting etc.
Brown discharge can be due to collected blood from the endometrium.
Usually this will subside soon.
If you had doubt regarding pregnancy, once go for blood test for pregnancy.
Blood test gives more accurate result compared with urine test.
If the test comes negative, no need to worry.
Consult gynecologist and take tablets to control the spotting.
Then you can continue with Minera.
Take care.
