New to this

So I've always suffered from bad periods but it's always been something I can control. Then 15months ago I had my beautiful baby. Then a couple of months later I had the copper coil put it. Over the years I had tried many forms of contraceptives but the hormones never agreed with me. Now as I slowly stopped breastfeeding to no a full stop. I am in agony. I put the longer heavier periods down to the coil but this never ending period is the worst I've ever experienced. I ended up going to the docs because the cramps got so bad I was sure I was have a miscarriage. She believes I have endometriosis and I've got a hospital appointment on Friday. I am now sitting here with the pain back in full force with my baby asleep on me nearly throwing up and crying. How do I cope with the pain. How much pain should I be in before I'm concerned how do you look after a toddler when you want to throw up? What else could it be if not endo. I'm feeling so down at the moment and any help would be appreciated.

Have you had the coil removed? X



This sounds like the coil doing this.

Did you get it out?

Pop it out if you didnt and i bet you will feel better.

Kind regards



Yes I think when i go to hospital I'm going to ask to have it out. I'm so gutted as I was really hoping this would work for me seeing as I struggle with anything hormonal 😔


Hi, I've been for my appointment and now I've got to go for some scans. They didn't seem to think anything was wrong with the coil. Now I have no idea what's wrong and im so fed up with new symptoms popping up every other day.
