Can removal of Mirena IUD cause urinating problem?

Hello I had the MIRENA IUD for almost 3 years I recently took it off and 4 days after I had some bleeding. My concern is I am not bleeding any longer but there was brown discharge coming down. It also hurts when I have intercourse. It also burns when I urinate. I dont have urgency too pee nor pee frequently. Is this normal?

I have gone through your query and understood the concern. The instrumentation done during the process of the removal of the IUD seems to be causing your symptoms of pain during intercourse and while passing urine. The discharge is the withdrawal bleeding seen as the hormone effect of the IUD wanes off. If this persists, please get further help from your consultant. Maintain proper genital hygiene, do not use strong soap solutions or douches and avoid wearing tampons. Hope this helps.

I removed the Mirena(IUD) a month ago after having it in for about 9.5 years total. I placed a new IUD after the 5 years were up. It s my first menstrual cycle after IUD removal and I have been excessively bleeding, soaking through in less then an hour. A day before my cycle started I stretched out while sleeping and I felt as if I pulled a pelvic muscle and at that moment experienced severe lower pelvic pain. I told myself if the pain persists I would see a physician the next day I spotted a little then the following day is when I have been just urinating clots of blood and soaking through where I am constantly changing my pad. I have never had heavy cycles I have a semi heavy first day then then about 3 very light days. I am still experiencing lower pelvic pain and I am now concerned. Is this normal since I had the Mirena in for so many years?
