I'm posting on behalf of my girlfriend (she doesn't know I'm doing this).
I'm just slowly becoming more and more concerned for her. She's recently had the Jaydess coil inserted and ever since we have had nothing but problems with it.
I feel so bad for her. I'm literally crying as I type this. She is in a lot of pain. Uncontrollable pain. It's making it really hard for me to see her like this. I'm 21, and she is 22 but I'm really unsure what this is.
She has pretty bad pain in her lower left abdomen and I'm not sure that it's getting any better. She is bleeding quite a lot, she has worn a sanitary towel every day for the past 2 months. I'm not sure if it's an infection, there doesn't seem to be discharge (from what she tells me) but we have tried having sex in recent times and there seems to be a really really unpleasant smell afterwards along with a considerable amount of blood too.
She isn't sure if she can feel the threads on the coil anymore either which is also worrying but I am really not sure on that. I haven't tried to feel them or anything.
My question is, how long do you think it will be until she has an NHS appointment? I'm so desperate for it to happen. I can't stand seeing her like this anymore. I really love this woman and it's just so unpleasant.
Maybe I'm overthinking but the point is - that I am concerned that the GP hasn't put an appointment in for her with the hospital so I'm getting a little concerned about that now. What would be the best approach to this? A&E? Call the doctors office? Call the hospital? I'm so lost.
I don't think she would really listen to me. When I ask her to go to the hospital or call the doctors to make sure something has been done for her, she will refuse or try and play it off.
If someone can shed some advice and help me out I'd be really grateful.
We aren't looking to conceive but one day we are going to consider it I'm assuming, we're long term so I think that may happen one day. I'm scared whether this is a Pelvic Inflammatory Disease or something along those lines? The doctor has been really unhelpful and this is why I'm thinking that the right precautions haven't been taken to make sure my girlfriend gets the best treatment.
