Hi, I've been to see a gynae, and after explaining my 10+ years of heavy bleeding (blood clots) which floor me, he suggested a coil. I have been sterilised (which I have found on researching that this caused all the heavy bleeding that I never had previous to being sterilised, which has resulted from post tubal ligation, something I never knew about till recently and lots of women are actually being ignored, their excuse is my thyroid, but I told him, that I never bled like this previous to being sterilised and he just huffed and shoved it to one side, what does he know!) My point with the coil is, why would I need that if I have been sterilised? They say it's to help with the blood flow, but I don't want to be going back and being prodded again to look for this coil. I find it quite traumatising just having a smear test (due to previous rough handling) and really do not want to have this done. He is also going to do a hysteroscopy, something else I am dreading as it is only for exploring to see if anything else is happening. Fine, I understand that, but does anyone know if I am 'knocked out' for this procedure (as I hope I am) because I really do not want to go through with this for 10 to 30 mins without any anesthetic. Sorry it's a long winded request. I really appreciate any feedback on past experiences of this.
