I've had my Mirena coil for nearly 5 years, I've been happy with it (no periods ) so am planning to have it replaced.
I found having it fitted incredibily painful, I'm hoping I was just unlucky but I'm thinking of going to the Family Planning Clinic this time, instead of the local hospital as they should be more experienced.
My question is - is it acceptable to ask for a day off work? I don't really want to tell my (male) boss what I'm getting done, but should I say it's a medical procedure?
Not keen to use up annual leave.
I guess I could try for an afternoon appointment so would only need a half day.
check what your work policy is re routine medical appointments. I think with ours they expect you to make up the time. But it won't take all day, will it? I'd go for a late afternoon appt personally and just leave early.
