Hi, I had the coil fitted on friday. I would really encourage women who haven't had kids not to have it done. It was horrific. I've had a lap and lletz (cervical scar tissue probably didn't help) that was a walk in the park compared to that pain. The nurse had nail marks on her arms after. Then after I got dressed I passed out and had to stay lying down for half an hour. The cramping was horrific after. I'm not a huge pain wimp either. I have chronic pelvic pain and live with it most days. Please could someone advise if this pressurised pain I'm feeling in my vagina and above the pubic bone is normal? I understand that the cramping is but I feel like I have a badly positioned tampon in there. I also need the loo constantly which might just be a mild uti I am susceptible to these. It's 2am and I can't sleep because it's so uncomfortable. I also have bad back pain and shooting down my legs. Again I'm used to that but coupled with the pressure in my vagina I'm going a bit nuts. I have taken codeine and paracetamol but it's not settling down. Its also painful to walk. Thanks in advance for your advice.
