    I still wouldnt worry she's checking for infection etc first.i was thinking that you have been bleeding while on the cool of you had a thickened lining etc and all this has only happened after cool removal and we get older I think we alf et thinner in the vagina too,it could be something as simple as a tear when removing or just hormonal changes due to coil removal as that keeps everything in balance .are you heavy or is it still light ? is it red or dark old blood? I've been passing dark blood which looks old and I'm on norethesterone so hope it's just break through bleeding xxx

    Ok. Stay calm and try not to get too stressed. It is necessary to rule out infection. In the meantime, the bleeding might stop by itself. Almost everyone bleeds when a coil is removed and you have had it in longer than is usually recommended, but if there are no other symptoms, it is probably the removal that has caused the bleed.Keep us posted. Take care and try to relax. Not easy but I have found that stressing doesnt change the outcome.

    Hi Anne. I am assuming she's testing for poss infection as your coil has been in much longer than it normally should be - so that's logical. & she has agreed to do an ultrasound (probably a transvaginal one) if no infection. I always try to put myself in other people's shoes when answering posts on here, & i think if that were me, i would probably be satisfied with your doc's line of investigation. I've had a transvaginal ultrasound a couple of times, & its really nothing to worry about & over with very quickly. You may get a bit of period type cramping when they do it. Its very easy for me to say try not to worry, but really try your best not to. I understand its the waiting, you just want to know quickly - I've been in that position too, & am currently with other illness ongoing. We have a wondeful nhs, but unfortunately nothing is instant to curb our worries better. Take care Anne, & try to be assured by your doctors test requests. xxx
