On September 17, 2013 I went in for surgery to have this ‘coil’ put in while having another procedure for endometriosis. Luckily I have not had any painful side effects from this procedure. However September 2014 comes and I begin to have symptoms that point towards pregnancy. Of course I think that is not a possibility, yet my friend of 18 years encourages me to take a test. While standing in the bathroom watching a pregnancy read positive within seconds I begin to panic. How will this work? My husband and I were very sure we that we were content with our 3 daughters. Not to mention I was less than 2 weeks away from a hysterectomy. I cried and called my doctor. I then told my husband who thought I was pulling a prank on him until the tears started falling again. This should be a joyful time, not one of fear and disbelief. We have since then decided to keep our little miracle child with a plan to have that hysterectomy shortly after we welcome our 4th child into our lives. The other options were not really an option for us. To even be in a position to have to go through those ideas killed us. I still go back and forth with my emotions and I feel guilty some days for even thinking that way. I would recommend another permanent birth control to others unless you don’t really want the ‘permanent’ part.
