Having a coil with a tac

(1/2) > >>

Hi, I had a tac fitted three years ago. I have recently come the pill due to high blood pressure. ( was on the pill due to heavy periods) my doctor has advised me to have a coil fitted but when I asked if this was possible with a tac, she didnít even know what a tac was!
I need to do something soon as my periods are horrendous and my endo is really bad. But nobody seems to be able to help me. Thanks xx

willsmum:
Yes xx

I believe that it is okay. As the TAC procedure is similar incision wise on the abdomen to a Caesarean section. I know that Coils are safe for previous Caesarean section. However as a midwife it is out of my area of expertise it is an obstetricians area. If you are concerned I would call secretary of dr that did the procedure to check. Or ask GP to check letter following procedure. If there was a recommendation not to have a coil it should have been in your post
Operation letter.
