Should I go to A&E?

On a Friday night before a bank holiday weekend…
Sorry shamelessly posting for traffic.

  • I had a coil fitted end of July
  • had a scan today to make sure it was in correct place as breastfeeding makes your womb more supple apparently and dr that fitted it wanted to check this
  • Lady doing the scan said one of the coil arms has bent
  • also there is a pool of something, she thinks potentially blood sat in my womb - she said ‘you need to go see dr’ on reflection I really should have made her elaborate whether she just meant in general or wait for my results
  • I started bleeding yesterday, this would be irregular bleeding as my period only stopped 2 weeks ago
  • I am having a weird cramping on the inside of my hips which is new. The pain is quite intense

I am just concerned that if this is a pool of blood is this ok just to be sat in my body?

Any advice much appreciated.

Ring your out of hours service.

Period cramping in the hips isn't uncommon, I found that out when I started having it, and asked.

If you're on a period an amount of blood in your uterus isn't unexpected.

The coil can mess with your cycle, so an out of sync isn't unusual either.

I wouldn't go to A&E - it's not an accident or emergency, but I'd ring out of hours to either put your mind at rest or get checked.

It's not an accident or an emergency so no. I would wait till gp opens again unless get very unwell (temp over 38 extreme pain) and then would try 111 1st.

If she'd thought you needed to see someone urgently she would've made sure that happened. Have you taken pain relief for the cramping?

No. They won't do anything, if you needed seeing urgently they'd of said.

No you dont need a&e. You need some neurofen and a hot water bottle. Hope you feel better soon.
