User :   i had a mirena coil fitted just over 3 weeks ago and a few hours ago i realised my coil was totally out of my womb and just sitting in the top of my vagina. I hve been having my period, its been long and i seemed to be getting clots coming out. Its horrible. I had a lot of pain after it was fitted which lasted until about 3 days ago. Im using the coil for my heavy and painful periods, not as a contraceptive so im not worried about pregnancy but i would like to know what to do now? And how soon will i be able to get another fitted? Thanks
User :   hello
Doctor :   hello
Doctor :   i am Dr here
Doctor :   give me a min please, let me read your query
Doctor :   may i know your age please ?
User :   23
Doctor :   now at this moment the coil is out ?
User :   yes, completely removed
Doctor :   and you noticed this today itself ?
User :   yes a few hours ago
Doctor :   ok now for your query you can get the coil fitted once your periods get over
User :   ok, i had an appointment to have it checked this coming friday, so should i cancel?
Doctor :   no its alway better for a physical examination
Doctor :   but dont worry
User :   the appointment was to check the coil, and although its no longer there, i should still get cheked?
Doctor :   yes you should still
Doctor :   also its better so that we can see if the coil has not caused any damage
Doctor :   not that it must have but there is no harm
User :   ok, i will. Can i ask also, was it normal for me to have that much pain for so long after i had it fitted? I was taking 3 types of painkillers to keep the pain down
Doctor :   many patients do feel pain upto a week
Doctor :   and in yoru case since it came out i can assume it was not fitted properly
Doctor :   that also is the reason for the pain
Doctor :   your**
User :   ok, i shall go see my gp and see if i can try again
Doctor :   yes you should
User :   before i log off can i ask about a related problem?
Doctor :   sure you may
Doctor :   go ahead
User :   for some time i have had a pain that i can only describe as a pinch to my overies
User :   for some time i have had what i can only describe as a pinch to my left ovarie
Doctor :   ok
User :   it comes and goes, some times as frequently as a few times a day, some times not for weeks, its a sharp pain that lasts a few minutes then goes
Doctor :   i see and is there any relation to this to your periods ?
User :   no, its not like a period pain, it can come and go at any time during my cycle
Doctor :   ok now the only way we can find out in this case would be via ultrasound
Doctor :   as it can be cyst
Doctor :   but we do need to be sure
User :   are cysts dangerous? Should i also ask my gp about this?
Doctor :   no they are not and can be treated with medications
Doctor :   but yes you should go for a ultrasound
