Aching and Cramps in Pelvic Area?

Hi Ladies,


I am 25 years old and I've had the Mirena IUD for 3 out of the 5 years now. I'm not sure if this is related to having an IUD but I've noticed I get period-like cramps and aching (especially on the left side) a lot of times when I'm not even on my period. I also get purple/black or yellow/clear gooey discharge a lot throughout the month and it makes me embarassed to have sex with my boyfriend for fear it'll come out during the act.

Does anyone know what these symptoms may be caused by? Anyone with similar experiences? Please be kind... I'm struggling and in pain. (Going to see my GP about it as well.)

*I have been tested for pregnancy and STIs and all tests are negative.
