I got my coil fitted about 8 months ago… I’m getting period pains on and off a lot during and not during my period! I’m also feel a lot less tight down there ‘sorry too much info!’. I’ve been trying to find others in similar situations but I haven’t found anything… I’m worried if I’m cramping a lot that the contractions are maybe what’s making me feel like this? My lifestyle is the same and I’m only 22 but feel like an old lady any help would be useful thanks! X
Many thanks for sharing this. From a clinical point of view I can’t think of why having a coil would make your vaginal muscles less tight, but you can strengthen your vaginal muscles and improve their tone at any time of your life through pelvic floor excercises. I agree - worth knowing if anyone else is experiencing this.
It does seem like your coil is giving you quite a lot of discomfort during and between your periods. You have had it in for 8 months so thats plenty of time for it to settle down. Do you want to re-think your contraception?
