On a scale of one to oh crap - how worried should I be?

I can't find my coil strings. I have never lost them before. DH can't find them either.

I have a gynae appointment on Tuesday so I can tell them then assuming they haven't shown up.

Do they often hide for a bit? <looks hopeful>

VeniVidiVickiQV Sat 19-Jul-08 19:15:35

I dont think it's a major issue. Especially if you are not in any pain, and you are seeing the gynae on Tuesday. <lies through front teeth>

LittleMissTickles Sat 19-Jul-08 19:16:31

I have never been able to find mine, but the are apparently there, hiding in a perfectly safe spot. Dont worry.

I once lost mine, gp found them knotted high up, said that was common in people who had a vigorous sex life, dont know if he was winding me up.

Flamesparrow Sat 19-Jul-08 19:18:31

I don't remember the last time I checked for them... am a tad concerned about the very sore norks I currently had and the last date of sex!

if i'd never been able to find them it wouldn't bother me, but the fact that I used to be able to easily, and now they are poof....

NormaStanleyFletcher Sat 19-Jul-08 19:18:51

flame - you do know that I got pg with a coil in place doncha <<evil cackle>>

but really I wouldn't worry. I couldn't find mine (some months before the conception) but the family planning people did straight away.

Flamesparrow Sat 19-Jul-08 19:19:23

<snigger> @ the concept of a vigorous sex life lately grin

Bbbee Sat 19-Jul-08 19:19:26

sometimes trouble finding mine but just try again in a few days - i think you may be a little more vigalnet that me.

I wouldn't be 'oh crap'ing but maybe 'um, ah'ing.

piratecat Sat 19-Jul-08 19:19:33

where can they hide tho? secret chamber?

NormaStanleyFletcher Sat 19-Jul-08 19:19:45

what kind of coil is it <<more sympathetic not heard about sore norks>>

NormaStanleyFletcher Sat 19-Jul-08 19:21:22

<<whispers>> do pg test if you are worried

Flamesparrow Sat 19-Jul-08 19:21:32


all fanjos have a secret coil string chamber. I'm sure I read it somewhere.

Copper coil.

NormaStanleyFletcher Sat 19-Jul-08 19:22:25

they will be in the secret chamber.

Flamesparrow Sat 19-Jul-08 19:26:20

I'm not wasting money on a test until the appointment! I only have 52hrs and 34mins to worry wink

VeniVidiVickiQV Sat 19-Jul-08 19:31:58

Would it be so terrible to have a DD/DS2? wink

Flamesparrow Sat 19-Jul-08 19:35:40

Tis the date that would be the issue.

Both of them fall on/next to one of the Psychochildren's birthdays. I wanted the next one (if we decided to have one) to have a birthday all by itself so it has to be conceived during a Nov/Dec/Jan (anal and obsessive? me?).

If sore norks are for a reason, it would fall about Psychogirl1's birthday wink

VeniVidiVickiQV Sat 19-Jul-08 19:40:25

Oh fgs! There is no issue grin

My DD and DS have birthdays 9 days apart, and within a month of mine and DH's birthdays (which are 13 days apart). Also DS was born only 3 weeks after my cousins DD.

In the great scheme of things, it dont matter. In fact, often, it works out to be quite useful when buying presents...(2 for the price of 3 etc wink)

VeniVidiVickiQV Sat 19-Jul-08 19:40:44

Or even 3 for the price of 2 blush

Flamesparrow Sat 19-Jul-08 19:41:39

I know how petty it is blush

Flamesparrow Sat 19-Jul-08 19:42:18

Lol - you go in them posh shops and get ripped off dontcha? wink

Flamesparrow Sun 20-Jul-08 10:08:07

Another calm check today.

They really ain't there.

How do they get missing coils out of you? Should that be a new thread (this title isn't the most descriptive!!)

TheMadHouse Sun 20-Jul-08 10:10:05

You are supposed to check for your sting?

Flamesparrow Sun 20-Jul-08 10:10:43

It said so in the leaflet thingy i got when it went in.

TheMadHouse Sun 20-Jul-08 10:12:40

Well that explains it then, I never read the leaflet. I think DS2 ate it grin

Flossish Sun 20-Jul-08 10:26:52

Sorry winding you up FS.

Hope the strings appear soon in lieu of a baby!!! grin
