Hi, I had the coil fitted about 2-3 weeks ago with no problems.
Yesterday I was fine then all of a sudden had horrendous pain, like a contraction that doesn't stop, lost a lot of blood and blacked out every time I stood up. Called 111 in a panic who sent an ambulance. Had some pain relief and felt better.
Today I still feel faint and very sick - similar to pregnancy symptoms.
Is all this normal side effects from the coil?
I'm going to make an appointment with my GP to be on the safe side as it was very scary especially with two babies to look after!
Hi. Just an update really and looking for a bit of advice.
I had my check up and they think the coil could be in the wrong place, I am waiting for a date for a scan to confirm this. I had unprotected sex the two nights before so I requested the MAP which my Dr flat out refused saying that my pregnancy test was negative (obviously it would be being so early on) I'm annoyed at myself for not pushing for it, I've had numerous problems with this Dr who is covering my normal Drs mat leave. She missed all the signs of my pregnancy with my daughter and is just bloody rude if I'm honest. She claims to be a family planning specialist but seems to know sweet FA!!
I will be able to test next Monday, I'm so upset that I could be pregnant again when I have a 16 week old and a 16 month old already.
Also, how long should it take for a scan appointment to come through?
That Dr sounds pretty rude and unhelpful. Sorry you're having all these problems. Is it now too late to ask someone else for the MAP? I don't know how long it would take for a scan - is it to look for your coil? I hope you get some reassurance and a negative test
