Patient : Hi there
I had the copper coild fitted about 3 weeks ago (following my period). THe procedure hurt (as expected) and the pain went away after about a week and I was back to normal.
However, over the past couple of days I have started bleeding and have had very painful cramps. I know the copper coil can make periods very uncomfortable but I'm worried this is a bit much as even painkillers are not doing anything!
Many thanks and kind regards
