I had a copper coil fitted on 22 Nov 17. I had cramps for a couple of days and then it seemed to settle down. However, in the past couple of days i've had cramps and I am not due on my next period until 16 Jan. Is this normal? The cramps aren't major, kind of in the background. I've no fever, or unusual discharge or anything like that. I don't know whether to get it checked? I am due to have my smear next week too so not sure whether to ask the nurse then and she can obviously check the strings. I had a coil before and never experienced cramps in between periods but not sure if it is because it has been changed, is a different one? is it just settling in?
