A simple ultrasound scan will be able to check on the position of your intra-uterine contraceptive device (IUCD) or coil, enabling your medical specialist to determine whether there are any problems with it. The scan is quick, easy and pain-free.

Only if coils are fitted correctly will they prevent pregnancy and, in the case of menopause management, provide suitable results. If any of the following are of concern to either the patient or their medical specialist, a scan might be requested:

  • If you experience any abnormal pelvic pain, discomfort or bleeding that could be due to a misplaced IUCD
  • The strings of an IUCD should pass through the cervix into the top of the vagina once fitted. A scan might be required if these can’t be felt or seen during an examination.
  • There were any issues with the fitting of the IUCD, and you want to check that it has been positioned and fitted correctly
  • Conditions such as fibroids can interfere with the placement of the IUCD, so ruling this out can be important
  • If you think you might be pregnant
  • You are not experiencing any symptoms which you might have expected

Bodyvie offers Private GP Services. If it is determined during the scan that your coil has moved, is wrongly positioned, or the strings have disappeared, our GPs offer coil removal and coil fitting. In instances where the removal is too complex and requires surgical removal or general anaesthetic, you will be referred to a specialist and provided with the ultrasound report and imaging to help your gynaecologist.

A full bladder is required for this scan, so you will be advised to drink one pint of water an hour before your scan.

"I saw Dr Weber for a private consult following
a misdiagnosis of depression by my GP.
Dr Weber suggested it sounded like perimenopause
and moved me off antidepressants
and on to HRT. I'm back to my old self
and can't thank him enough!"
