Possibly pregnant, but I have the coil?!

Postby ohdear » Wed Oct 26, 2011 7:33 pm

Hi everyone,
I'll keep this short and sweet! I've had the coil for over a year now! I already have a two year old, I'm 11 days late, minimum (my periods tend to be a day or two early or late, but 11 days?!) and I have bought a test but I'm too scared to do it!
If I am pregnant, I'll be at a risk of miscarriage, which I couldn't deal with right now. If I am pregnant and I have the baby, I'll probably have to quit the course I'm on, which I don't want to do at all but I'd be willing to do for my baby. Abortion isn't an option. Things are complicated between me and my partner, we're not even living together at the minute. I don't want any more children, and if I do it won't be for a good four years at least. I also had a terrible labour with my first child, and the thought of doing that to myself again scares the life out of me!!!
Maybe I should just take the test before I think about all these things? I'm clearly over thinking, but I'm also panicking!!
Thanks for reading! x

Some types of coil make periods go lighter or stop. Yes, take the test!

I've got the copper one lol it makes them heavier (no fun, I can tell you!)

I did the test and it came back negative, if I'm still not on in a week or so I'll do another test. Thanks for your reply, snail :)

Well done for taking it. It's probably nothing, but see your doc if it still doesn't come after a while and you're still testing negative.
