I had my IUD put in since 2005, I have 3 children, myself and husband do not want anymore kids. I have been to my family planning clinic thrice to have the IUD coil removed. But they keep telling me it is ok to have the coil in longer once someone is over 50 years. For the past 4 weeks, I have had hip and pelvic excruciating pain. I initially thought it was due to an earlier kidney stone. But all urine and ct scan test showed i am clear of any kidney stone. I havx been in pain for the past 4 weeks and cannot do anything unless i use pain relieving tablets. I am thinking of removing the coil as i have had it in for twelve years now. Please can anyone advise or has anyone experienced something similar.
