Ok so 2 days ago I had the implant removed and the copper coil put in. First thing i am going to say is unless you have a very very high pain threshold i wouldn't reccomend having it put in. I've not had any children so for me it was horrific. Can honestly say i've never felt pain like it in my life butt this may be different for others. I even had a numbing gel put in first to help so i dread to think what it would have been like without that. It all starts off quite simple but as soon as the lady was ''measuring my womb'' i was a crying mess! lol. Very hard to explain the feeling, it's a very very sharp feeling right inside. Once it was in i was made to stay laying down for half an hour, given paracetamol, water, had my pulse checked and the doctor was very nice about it all but no sooner had it been put in than the after pains started. Again, vile! Like nothing i've felt before, even now as i write im clutching a hot water bottle to my tummy and wondering why i decided to put myself through this. Like i said before, i have never had children but the only way i can describe the pains im having is as contractions. They come in waves and are sometimes sharp and other times dull and so deep and painful, then they'll go for a few minutes and then come back! Also, lots of pressure down below but the doctor said this will be my body seeing the coil as a ''foreign object'' and will be trying to push it out. It's been two days now and still can't manage too much and i'm the type that will usually just get on with things but i've honestly never felt anything like it. I'm also bleeding very heavily. Just hoping that these pains will let up within the next day or two!!!
I'm not trying to put anyone off i'm just giving my experience and i personally wouldn't reccomend having this fitted unles you can take pain!
Hoping all this pain will be worth it in a few days though because i'm very excited about having no artificial hormones racing around my body!
