: Hi Rosie
: I am currently using the coil and have had it for the past 8 months as I gave birth to a baby in February and had it fitted shortly afterwards.
Unfortunately, I have missed my period over 5 weeks ago and think i may be pregnant. I am now worried that if i am pregnant, will the coil be left in or taken out? I have just put a pregnancy test into my doctor and he will deal with it from here on.
Does the coil have to be removed when you are pregnant, is it advisable or should it be left in there for less risk of miscarriage?
