having mine taken out on wednesday as I have had it in for 5 and a half years. Does it really hurt. Be honest with me, please

it was 12 yrs ago and I was terrified and it didn't hurt at all Bit like the discomfort of a smear but no pain

Sorry to digress, but what's it like having one put in? Does that hurt at all - got this coming up!

Hope it goes ok for you BH - I hate anything like this and just grit my teeth.

It was ok tiny gang a lttle bit painful. Mind you I did have it in when dd was 6 weeks old so was probably a bit tender anyway.

Just not sure what to do now about contraception to be honest!

can't you have another?I couldn't and its been condoms ever since -hate them!I think you can have another after a while

Noddy holder - really don't want another one. have had a lot of abdominal pain and thrush since having it in. I am convinced it is all linked.

you can get thrush with them and pain I loved the convenience I suppose.It is either the cap or the condom then-inless you can take the pill

Sorry Noddy did you say you can get thrush with them?

Had my coil put in after dd as had pre-eclampsia which left me with high bp -so no more of the pill. GP wasn't sure at first if it would be OK as I had a CS with dd but was willing to give it a go - it worked but it was pretty painful due to the fact that my womb & cervix weren't "stretched" or "soft" as they would have been following normal delivery. Had to take a coupleof hours off work afterwards. That said, it isn't supposed to be half as bad if you've had normal delivery. Hope this hasn't put anyone off!

yes they def cause it as I had it repeatedly with mine and my gp said that was quite common apparently bugs can travel up the strings(TMI I know!)
