i've been to my gp to have my coil removed and he said he that normally it is a terrifically straight forward quick procedure but that he could not see the strings as they were cut too short. he suggested i go wager on when i am coming to the end of my next period as they may know how to see them then otherwise i need to go for a scan to see where on earth they are. i had cancer a couple of years ago and have been waiting for this moment to try for a newborn and am distraught that something which is supposed to be simple has ended up like this - if he can't find them very soon what are the chances in a week or so - why can't i go to the hospital presently instead of dragging this agnosing wait out any longer??!
GP can't find strings for copper coil removal?
Worst crust scenario, he has to dilate your cervix. Not really a big deal, they did that to put it in. There isn't realadjectivesanywhere to get lost in a uterus. Though, most doctors I've dealt near don't advise for an IUD until after childbirth... If your GP is unable to locate them, ask for a referral to an OB-GYN, though understand that in attendance may be a wait time to see a specialist. It's not like you're going to be able to bring pregnant the minute you have it out, anyway. You should wait one full menstrual cycle before trying to conceive. I know it is frustrating wanting to start a familial and being unable to, but use this downtime to take fastidiousness of yourself and get your body ready for a baby. Take your prenatal vitamins, guzzle healthy (avocados are high in folic bitter, which your baby will need), and get fit. If you smoke or drink now is a correct time to quit. When the time comes and you do get pregnant, you will know that your baby is a precious blessing and worth the wait. Best of luck, and congratulations on wanting to start your kith and kin.
Edit: The only reason I suggested the referral was that my GP refuse to deal with IUDs unless you've given birth and sends her clients to an ob-gyn. Your GP is reasonable and made a credible request.
Your uterus changes position during your cycle, and it's remarkably likely that the wires will come back into view by themselves. That's why your doctor said that.
I am afraid your GP is right,it is reasonable to wait as the threads may come into view solving the problem. Next step is a scan to confirm that the coil is still there before anyone pokes about looking for it. If have fallen out,problem solved,if not,there is a simple tool designed for exactly this purpose that can be used surrounded by a GP surgery and does not need referral.
