Ouch: Linda Robson revealed on Loose Women on Friday that she forgot she had the coil and doctors struggled to remove it from her womb 25 years later
Speaking about her experience live on air, Linda revealed: ' had the coil for 25 years embedded in my womb, I just forgot [about it].
After a doctor advised her to head to hospital, Linda met with a gynaecologist who failed to remove it twice, before successfully retrieving it on their third attempt.
'I went to the hospital, the gynaecologist was trying to get rid of the coil, they were digging away... he did it twice and said, "You'll have to come back and have a procedure,"' she revealed.
Reluctant to have a procedure, Linda encouraged the doctor to try again.
She continued: 'Third time, it really hurt - but he got it and I was just so relieved I didn't have to have a procedure done. I think a lot of people forget they have the coil.'
