Anyone had a coil fitted thats gone missing at a later date?! My mirena coil has come out of place and im waiting for a date for an ultrasound to find out where its gone but im worried! How do they get it out if it cant even be seen down there by the nurse?!
if it has gone through your uterus you'll have to have an op to get it removed...well basically if it has gone anywhere internally it'll be an op to get it out...you haven't expelled it and you haven't noticed???
hope they find it hunny xxx

the coil going through uterus (perforation( is usually very painful so I'm sure you would have felt it!!
It has most likely been expelled or the threads are curled up in side you
You won't need a cutting operation unless it has perforated
they can usually do a minor proceedure (hysteroscopy) to uncurl it or hook it out if it is inside the uterus
Thanks for replying girls. Ive got the scan next week, im abit annoyed it hasnt been sooner but they dont seem bothered. The thing is i had an accident a few weeks ago and badly damaged my hips, pelvis, back and ribs. I told my doctor i had a stabbing pain in my cervix, it felt exactly the same as when i was pregnant and she didnt seem bothered, it didnt cross my mind untill two weeks later that it could be my coil so i checked for the threads and they had gone! So thats when i went to a nurse and asked her to check! I am in alot of pain but i cant work out if its from the accident or the coil!
Either way i am never ever having another put in after this!! I cant trust the pill.. or the coil now!!
MrsRH do you know if it can cause any infections/damage if it isnt in the right place? And also would it show up on an xray?! I had an xray after my accident of my whole pelvis/hips and lower back area and the lady said to me do you have your belly button peirced? I told her i didnt and she said she could see something metal on the xray, i was so high off morphine and gas&air that i didnt even think to ask what it could of been and i thought the coil was plastic!?
