Had mirena put in in April. Can find my cervix but cannot find any strings this am. Dr is ringing me tomorrow, not made an appt because I have just started with thrush so want to clear it before anyone examines me.
AArgh what will they do? Fish it out under GA? Assuming its still in the womb of course and not fallen in the toilet...
I think if it had come out you would have felt it don't you? So it must have slipped up the other way if that's possible?
If I were you I would be more worried about what the coil were doing floating around in my womb than going to the Doc's with a bit of thrush. He/she sees thrush all the time, nothing to be embarrassed about.
Sure when I had mine fitted was told there is a tiny risk it can get lost by falling out or can go upwards into womb or even into other parts of abdomen (sorry if this sounds alarming). So if you can't find it there is a chance it could be somewhere that it shouldn't (in which case it would be a good idea to see GP) and a chance you could get pregnant- guess the risk of this depends on where sunday fell in you cycle (ie around ovulation.
I was told the most likely time for coil to fall out was during your period so its best to double check it is there after this time- not that I tend to remember.
Hope I haven't alarmed you- am just reiterating what I was told. Really hope all turns out to be OK for you.
Ah well, it could be worse. Saw pharmacist yesterday, got MAP and a -ve pregnancy test
Spoke to GP, I will be off for an ultrasound to find out it it's still in there. The good news is, if its still there we can leave it until it's due to be changed, phew. I was racing ahead thinking I'd have to get it fished out but apparently not.
