I have had the Copper Coil a contraception for 6 years and 2 months. (I initially thought it would last 10 yrs but was recently told it s actually only valid for 5 years). I m due to have it removed within the next 2 weeks but I was wondering whether there are any serious side effects from having the expired coil for so long? I m particularly concerned as my husband & I are planning to try for a baby in the next 6 mths or so. I have also been experiencing sporadic pain in the right side of my abdomin, occasional pain during sex & increased unpleasant vaginal discharge over the past few mths.
