Had Lletz yesterday and the first thing the consultant did was remove my coil which I wasn't expecting. She said it was because the threads would be cut during treatment and I would have to have a GA when I eventually had it removed. I can have another fitted in 6 months time after my follow up smear and if I don't need more treatment.
My question to anyone who has had this is what other contraception did you use? I am 42, 2 kids and was on my third coil. I'm obviously not looking forward to a return of periods!
I have to say that the coil removal was the most painful of the whole treatment, hardly felt the needle for the la. Though I was very wobbly and sore yesterday and feel rough today. Hope this helps for anyone that has LLETZ coming up and is dreading it like I was
