I had the copper coil for roughly 5 years, fitted 9or so months after the birth of my little girl.
I had no problems with it what so ever, although my periods became loads heavier they also started to run like clock work :-)
I had it replaced in November 2009 and again, no problems.
Periods not SO heavy but running like clockwork ....
UNTIL 3 weeks ago!
I have done 2 pregnancy tests, both of which say negative.
Apart from my breasts getting a bit bigger I have no other 'signs' of pregnancy.
I didn't have 'signs' when I was pregnant before, so apart from missing my period (which is unusual) I'm not sure what to do.
I undertand that the chances of getting pregnant with a coil fitted are slim...but there is still that slight chance.
I'd love to hear what you might have to say...
