well, today i went to see a friend of mine (who conveniently is also a GP) i explained how i had been feeling and that i had a strange sort of discomfort inside my vagina and that is felt very full as if somethng was pushing the coil out.
well it turns out that my coil had fallen out
it was resting just inside my birth canal instead of inside the uterus. and judging by the amount of thread i had been able to feel right from the start and the length of the thread, it looks as though it was correctly put in and that within hours of been put in it basically just fell out.
so it has been providing me with little or no birth control at all. (may be a small amount due to the hormone release system but as it was being released in the wrong place it is doubtful)
so i pulled it out! which i would not have been able to do myself if it had been in the right place.
all this considered i did take a pregnancy test today which came back negative. however, i may have only conceived a few days ago, so i will test again tomorrow first thing.
however, the frequent urination could be because of the incorrect position of the coil making me feel that i needed to go often.
so watch this space.......
