I cannot feel the strings from my mirena coil. I only had it put in about 4/5 weeks ago back in the UK. I only recently arrived in Vancouver so do not know where to go. I have been recommended Khatsahlano clinic but there are some reviews online that are not reassuring and I'm just rather anxious.


Sorry I don’t have any information on the Khatsahlano clinic so I am unable to comment. It can be difficult to get reviews on medical clinics as it really depends on what health professional you see. I also notice that some people will see the same health professional and one person had a bad experience and the other person had a good experience.

I often refer people to the crossroads clinic as they offer walk in, family practice and a number of different specialist.

I also find stein medical will see people who have travel and student medical insurance.

I would just recommend giving them both a call to see if your insurance is covered and discussing your concern with them so they can connect you with the health professional who has experience in this area.
