Hello i am new an would like some advice. In May of this yr my Mirena coil came away nearly 3 yrs after it was fitted. I have to wait until Sep to get another one fitted. This time i am having the IUD instead. When my coil came away i was never examined or given a reason for the expulsion of the coil only told it is very rare after having in so long and shouldnt happen at all. Not long after i had a urine infection which i was treated with anti-biotics.
I have the same symptons back again pain in my pelvic area, in my right thigh and my lower right back. I went to see the nurse who checked my urine and it was all clear. It was sent off to the lab for further investigation again all clear she made me feel i had wasted her time. She didnt bother to examine me or advise i see my GP.
I am currently on the mini-pill due to the long wait for the coil fitting. I was just wondering if anyone could shed some light on what the problem may be. Thanks
I have got another app with a different GP on Tues. The problem is we have no female GP's. Hopefully this one may be able to help as i have had this pain over a week now and if it was muscular surely it would start to go now but the pain is still there. Fingers crossed i will get sorted and i will let you know how i get on
I would be considering moving practice if I were you, Kathrina (and it's practical). If not I would be writing to my PCT to ask why they aren't providing a reasonable service. There's no real reason why it should be necessary to see a female GP about such things although I will say I recently asked to see a female GP at my practice and she was so lovely I nearly said "cancel your hen weekend this weekend, I want to marry you"
I share Highlander's concern although I'm sure you don't have ovarian cancer but for feck's sake, they are meant to take symptoms like this seriously for precisely this reason. My GP reassured me it was the right thing to do to present for assessment, did a pelvic exam and swabs and asked me to come back if symptoms not cleared up in a month. And I had a known condition at the time that this was quite possibly a side-effect of.
You almost certainly need a gynae referral. If you are out of luck this time around, is Bupa an option?
Thank you so much i am now concerned about the pain i have in my leg it is burning and my thigh hurts at the back (still have the pelvic pain) my toes are numb as well have called NHS direct and they said it is a side effect from some slimming tablets i have been prescribed??? i must be speaking another language or something
Maybe the pain is coming from your back? The pain in the leg/numbness in foot are often signs of nerve probs from lower back. Either way you need to spk with GP again and don't let them palm you off with "muscle strain!"
