Hello I had this procedure done April 2012 , when I first got this done I thought wow great no more worries of getting pregnant. I should have done more research because now over the last 7 months the day before my cycle and the first day I have excruciating pain in my abdominal area and it trickles down my left leg causing my thigh on the left to feel numb . I believe something is really wrong with the placement or the coil on the left side because that the side all my pain is on, I can actually feel something feeling like sharp stabbing pain . Sorry i don’t mean to scare anyone but I do have a doctors appt schedule for November 14,2013 I will return to share my results .
