I have a coil(got it in January) and I'm very late (for me) A week and a bit ago I had 2 days of period pains but no period. This happened when I got pregnant with dd who is only 11 months.
I'll get a test tomorrow.
In the meantime I was just wondering what the likelyhood of pregnancy is. ??

no contraception is infallible.. if you are late, you can test now !

I have a friend who had exactly that experience. She felt a bit of tummy cramp, then found out she was PG a couple of weeks later (turns out the cramps was the coil falling out!).

If it helps, my cycles took a very long time to settle down after having it fitted, including late periods and pains but no period.

hello Lulumama!!! I haven't got a test so will have to wait till the dreaded Sainsburry opens tomorro.
I think I'd better go and watch antiques roadshow and try not to worry!!!

Thats ok! I can cope with mental periods just CAN'T cope with childbirth EVER EVER AGAIN!!!!

my coil did this - afetr about 3 - 4 months i had no periods, but still got pmt for a few days a month. its unlikely you are pg, but no contraception is 100%

i got a mirena coil, took a good 6 months to settle down

<<hands manuka a trashy mag and some chocolates to take her mind off things...>>

childbirth is the easy part, tis the next 18 years that are tricky

Help, found out last Tues thatI'm pregnant, wit a copper coil in situ.

cass66 Tue 04-Dec-07 20:34:55

louy, if you haven't already, you need to get to your GP. if you want to continue with the pregnancy the coil needs removing under scan guidance. also ectopic pregnancies are more common with coils, so if you get any pain see your GP PDQ! However, do you know for sure the coil hasn't fallen out, ie can you feel the threads?

just a few initial thoughts. as has been said above, no method of contraception (except perhaps total abstinance, although not for Mary!) is totally foolproof.

Hi Cass66, thank you for your response. I have a termantion booked for Mon 10th. I have 2 children already, and starting up a buisness with my hubby Feb/March time. I had the coil fited for a reason, no more children. Also found out several things, Coil babys, Infections, Miscarrage, etc...
Termantion is not in me, but dont fancy going ahead with all different types of compications.

I was conceived while my Mum had a coil in with no complications... So it is possible :-/

louy Thu 27-Dec-07 19:04:56

Hi, A update. I had my Termantion on the 10th Dec, 2 weeks and a bit later and I feel such a huge weight of my shoulders. I have 2 wonderful children already, coil was put in for a reason. Even at the time of being preg I didn't feel excited or over the moon, I think I lost that "I wanted more" after my 2nd child was boon. would be about 7 wks preg now, not a ay goes by without me thinking etc.... but I feel ok. My Hubby i of for the Snip in the new year, done my bit now. Happy New Year to all.

Help, may be pregnant but v early stages. Have copper coil in and baby 1 is nearly one, been having fairly regular normal periods, still breast feeding, but have been having some pregnancy symptoms I.e. emotional, falling over, nosebleeds (had them during last pregnancy) and funny skin. Had a v early period but was funny, one day of heavy bleeding, then hardly anything! Will buy a test soon, currently sailing down Denile!

Hi I have the coil fitted, I had it fitted back in June I had a 2 week period after having it fitted, but haven't had a period since. Now I look 6 months pregnant and feeling extremely sick, the smell of any food and even when I'm eating I'm feeling sick. Anyone having the same please
