God that must be very worrying for you. I'm on my 3rd coil and have never had an issue like that. I have never used mines for contraception so I never check the threads.

I don't understand why you have to wait a week before they will refer you for a scan? Perhaps they don't think it's serious?

I'm sure you would still be able to have sex if it's not painful using another type of contraception.


Why do you gave to wait a week, to see doctor, why didn't he refer you today for a scan, If your worried go A&E.



I have to wait a week because thats when the next available appointment is I cant have sex until the coil has been sorted out as they dont want it to be worse then what it is im not on it for contraception either im on it for my endo but past few days pain has been worse so not sure if its cause the coil Im really worried but a&e dont do anything for me probably fed up of seeing my face lol xxx
