Is it painful to remove coil?
The experience of pain during the removal of a coil (intrauterine device or IUD) can vary among individuals. For many, the removal process is relatively quick and causes only mild discomfort.
When an intrauterine device (IUD) or coil is removed, the body undergoes a few changes as it transitions from having the device in place to its absence, including a brief discomfort or cramping during the removal; hormonal IUD users may experience changes in menstrual flow or regularity. It’s important to monitor for any side effects or health changes after removal.
The best time to remove an intrauterine device (IUD) depends on factors such as the type of IUD and individual circumstances, such as: lifespan of the IUD and menstrual cycle.
