Coil fitting and removal are general procedures used to prevent pregnancy. We will guide you in everything you need to know about IUD fitting and removal, including what to expect during the appointment, how to prepare and aftercare instructions.

Coil Fitting

Here’s what you can expect during the coil fitting procedure:

Before the Appointment
  • Make sure you are not pregnant before your appointment. If you are, your doctor cannot insert the IUD.
  • Discuss with your doctor what type of IUD or IUS (Intrauterine System) you want and which is most suitable.
  • It’s important to tell your doctor about any medical conditions and medications you are taking.
During the Appointment
  • Your doctor will first examine your cervix to determine the size of the uterus and ensure safe IUD insertion.
  • Next, a speculum holds your vagina open. Your cervix is then cleaned and numbed with a local anaesthetic to reduce the discomfort you may feel.
  • Your doctor will then use an instrument to insert the IUD through the cervix and into the uterus. The strings attached to the IUD are cut to the appropriate length. The procedure takes five to ten minutes.
After the Appointment
  • You may experience cramping, spotting or light bleeding for a few days after the procedure.
  • You may also experience discomfort during sex, which should resolve over time.
  • Your doctor may recommend that you schedule a follow-up appointment to check the placement of the IUD and ensure it is working correctly.
Coil Removal

Here’s what you can expect during the coil removal procedure:

Before the Appointment
  • Schedule an appointment with your doctor. It’s best to have the IUD removed during your menstrual cycle.
  • If you have a partner, consider using another form of birth control until the IUD removal.
  • Let your doctor know if you experience pain or discomfort with the IUD.
During the Appointment
  • Your doctor will insert a speculum into your vagina.
  • They will then locate the strings of the IUD and gently pull on them to remove the device. You may feel some discomfort or cramping, but it is usually brief.
  • The procedure takes only a few minutes to complete.
After the Appointment
  • You may experience cramping or light bleeding for a few days after the procedure, but it should resolve after some time.
  • If you do not plan on getting pregnant, you should use another form of birth control immediately after the IUD removal.
