Weird spotting on paragard

I have a paragard it's almost been a year now. I've had regular periods on it. This month however about a week ago I was spotting... then it stopped and a few days later again I was spotting (more of a brown) & now it's gone again. Has anyone else experienced this with paragard?

Contact Lenses and Mirena

I don't have an actual link to this, but I have read that Mirena can effect the eye's ability to wear contact lenses. Is this true?

I thought of it because I was trying to put in my contacts and every time the contact would lay against my eye, it wouldn't make the "seal" and it fell out. I'm not saying that's why it happened; it just reminded me and I wanted to know if it was a medical fact or an internet opinion.

still on edge about my paragard

So i recently got into a monogomous relationship and like all my relationships he lives out of town, since we started having sex its always been a hour drawn out ordeal lol. When i'm in the moment it doesn't cross my mind that my paragard will fail, its the next day when either of us returns to out towns. Im checking my strings and just praying that my period comes. I research and apparently its as effective as a tubal legation. Why can't i trust it? it seems to good to be true, i dont have cramps or heavy periods. how do i trust it? should i? my first partially expelled, and had to get it put in again with an ultrasound so at that time it was for sure in place. is that fairly reliable then? also does anyone have spotting? i just started spotting but my period is over.

IUD puncture


This morning, I began having severe pain in my pelvis area. I've been taking pain killers, thinking it was related to back pain, but it just occurred to me that it might be IUD puncture. I felt the strings, though, and they're still there, sticking out of my cervix. Is this possibly what it can be? I don't know if this is something I should go to the emergency room for right now or I can go see the doctor tomorrow.
