BV or Faint Menstration smell during period with Mirena IUD
Patient : I switched from using the pill for 3 months, so I wouldn't have a period to the Mirena IUD. Two weeks before my IUD insertion I developed BV. I got tested to make sure it wasn't an STI and it wasn't. I have never had BV before as well as I have never used contraceptives to stop my period. Needless to say the Mirena has stopped my period mostly and during my period I notice a faint metal and not-quite-fish smell when I check for the strings. I've had two regular cycles now and no partners. Is it BV again or just my light menstration making the smell?
