Our second baby was born 16months ago and since then DH and I haven't had sex (birth nightmare etc).
Anyway, children stay overnight with family, we go to a party......we end up have unprotected sex. Relied on withdrawal at the last minute.....stupid I know. This was on Sunday morning.
I took the MAP today (tuesday morning) as I was worried.....wish I had taken in earlier but DH was convinced we would be ok.
Anyway, my question is, should I try and get a coil fitted tomorrow? I know they can be fitted up to 5 days after unprotected sex to avoid pregnancy (seems more likley than the MAP after 24hours). BUT I am worried about a coil and would have wanted more time to look into it. I think the copper coil sounds better than the Marina but dont know enough.
DH thinks wait and see if the MAP works.....but isn't sure we can cope with a 3rd baby after the year we have had. I really dont want another baby yet.
I was going to phone around tomorrow and see if any clinics could even fit one tomorrow.....WWTD?
No, he pulled out Geordieminx If I am honest I would rather go back on the pill but the GP who gave me the MAP said that at 30 years old the pill carries more risks etc. I feel so bad, if the coil would stop a pregnancy then I should get it but if I have terrible side effects my poor children are going to have a rubbish summer hols....
Thank you so much for answering Geordieminx. I really appricate your responces tonight, been feeling rubbish all day and DH is less than helpful! Fingers crossed for some help tomorrow. I am otherwise normally so grown up and sensible I promise!
