New mirena placed 2 months ago and replaced, pink spotting with bad smell. What is it ?

I had a new mirena placed about 2 months ago. I expected periods when I had it replaced until the hormones catch up again. I have had spotting for 2 weeks in a row now, but now it is light pink and smells badly. It is almost just like the pink discharge and smells the same as after having a baby. Is this due to my uterus trying to heal or is it something I should be seen for?

Thanks for the query.
Spotting can be a side effect of the mirena.
And it may take some time for regularization of the hormonal levels.
Intrauterine device can lead to pelvic infection sometimes.
So better to get examined once to rule out that possibility.
Consult gynecologist once, get examined to find out the cause for foul smelling discharge and take treatment accordingly.
Take care.
