Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I had the marine coil fitted six years back. This was very painful and uncomfortable. The pain worsened and I went back to the doctor, who gave me antibiotics and referred me for a scan. Since examination IV bled occurred, becoming progressively sore internally and now externally. Nausea and dizziness are also present regularly. Previously I had issues with pain during and post intercourse, when having smears and any examinations. I have had tests down below which all come back good. I should mention the pain is all in my abdomen, back, and pelvis and causing pain and numbness in my left leg. Any advice on what to do?

Thank you.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern. Pain in the lower abdomen during and after intercourse can be due to pelvic inflammatory disease or endometriosis. By the smear examination, pelvic inflammatory disease is ruled out, so endometriosis is more likely in your case. I will suggest you get the coil removed if there is considerable discomfort and pain. Instead, you can take oral contraceptive pills which are likely to relieve the symptoms.

I hope this helps you.

Thank you.
