Advice please

Hi everyone. A few days ago I had really bad cramping period pains and passed a small 1.5-2cm piece of flesh. I went to the docs and they said that either my body has rejected the coil or I ve miscarried. They have said they would send me for a scan but will have to wait to be posted an appointment? Does anyone know how long I will have to wait? Finding it really upsetting not knowing and still having cramps. There seemed no urgency about the situation. Any advice welcome.

Hi hun. Was it just flesh or did you see the coil? Did they examine you? If its really painful ring NHS direct. I don't understand why there is no urgancy... When I had my 1st coil I bled for ages and had pain and just felt wrong, they sent me for a scan the same day where they found that it had slipped and told me to get it removed immediately as it was dangerous. I don't want to panic you and I was fine but had it removed same day. With my 2nd coil I fell pregnant and lost the baby. I tested positive, had coil removed next day (they would've left it in if I didn't want the baby), had to go back the next day as I was bleeding heavy and in lots of pain and they sent me to epau for a scan that day which showed I lost it. It was hard but easier to deal with knowing what happened. The limbo is horrible and I feel for you. Other than ringing NHS direct I would see another doctor and tell them you're concerned. Really think they should scan you, check bloods and poisition of coil for you if its still there x


Hi there

I would suggest getting in contact with your GP again and stress you are still getting pain, or if it's very bad pain go to A + E or walk-in centre and explain. They should be able to do a pregnancy test or check if a coil has moved.

I hope this helps

Best wishes
