Hi I got my copper coil fitted today, and felt nothing. Is this normal? I'm worried that maybe something is loose down there (or up there). I also heard the Dr and HCA whispering. I asked the Dr. If everything was OK and she said it was. However I know I heard her talking to the HCA in a low voice. I'm worried .....

Have you had kids? That can affect how fitting goes.
I've just had my coil refitted after 10 years and the pain both times was similar to a smear test. I'm sure if there were something wrong the doctor would have asked you to make a follow up appointment or referred you to another service. They may just have been conferring about where the sanitary towels were, or impressed at your pain tolerance.
