Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.
I can understand your concern.

You should consult a Gynecologist and get yourself examined and see whether Mirena coil is in position or not.
Meanwhile, you can employ a barrier method (condom) during sex to prevent pregnancy.
You can use some antispasmodic drug for your pain.
Brown discharge can be due to hormonal imbalance or due to infection.

Hope it was useful.
Regards
