Post subject: Merina coil and antibiotics HELP
Hi Hoping someone could help me out here. I have a merina coil fitted and since january my monthly cycle has changed a bit i get the pains and moody and a little spotting so no real period. On the 12th of aug started taking antibiotics for a water infection for a week, i was told by a friend the other day that these can stop your coil from working while you take them and about a week after. At the end of aug i had little pain and a bit of a heavier bleed for a couple of days. Could i be pregnant and when should i test cant stop worry about it.[/b]

i dont think antibiotics can stop the coil working, just the contraceptive pill that they affect. if youre worried though you could ring nhs direct or even google it to be sure. good luck. Wink xxx
