I had the mirena coil fitted at 8am today. I found this significantly painful (bit the pillow to refrain from screaming). I had a copper coil fitted almost 7 years ago and although it wasn't comfortable and left me a bit crampy I was pretty much ok. However with the coil today it was very painful at the time and remains very painful now, despite having taken tapentadol and mefenemic acid. Just wondering if others had experienced this because id been told I shouldn't need much more than paracetamol and ibuprofen and it should calm not long after insertion.
