BBC Breakfast's Naga Munchetty shares painful health update after 'traumatic' experience | The Sun
BBC Breakfast host Naga Munchetty has opened up about her painful and "traumatic" health experience in a furious tweet.
The TV presenter revealed on Twitter that she was STILL not being offered pain relief by doctors despite experiencing pain from an invasive medical procedure last year.
Naga, 47, opened up about her horrifying experience last year of having the contraceptive coil fitted by her doctor.
She said the procedure was "one of the most traumatic physical experiences" she ever had after fainting twice during the procedure.
The star admitted to "screaming in pain" as her husband tried to figure out what was going on listening to her "horror screams" through the door at the doctors' surgery.
The intrauterine device (IUD) or coil is inserted through the cervix and into the womb, with the procedure usually taking around five minutes.
Despite having a "high pain threshold", Naga said she continued to experience terrible pain after the coil had been fitted.
She went on to confirm later last year that she had the coil removed in an equally "excruciating" procedure, seeing her cry "tears of relief".
On Sunday, Naga took to Twitter to update her followers after it was revealed many other women were still suffering.
Journalist Natasha Livingstone took to the social media site to explain that despite her exclusive research alongside campaigners Lucy Mazuma and Caitlin Moran, Naga was still suffering.

"In June, campaigner @LucyMazuma with @TVNaga and @caitlinmoran sparked national debate about coil fittings," she wrote.
"A year on, I commissioned exclusive research with @gettheldown that found women are STILL not being offered pain relief."
Naga retweeted the news to her own fans, no doubt disappointed by the failure by professionals to help other women live pain free.
Last June, Naga opened up about how she let out "horror screams" while having the contraceptive device fitted in her womb.
She recalled: "I won't go into details, but my screams were so loud that my husband tried to find what room I was in to make it stop.
"He said that those in the waiting room hearing my screams looked horrified. The nurse accompanying the doctor had tears in her eyes."

"I was asked by my doctor halfway through if I wanted to stop, but I was so determined that the pain I’d suffered so far wouldn’t be repeated, so I said, 'we’ve got this far, let’s finish it'. I fainted twice."
Continuing she said: "I have friends who have had very similar experiences and of course I have friends who had no problem at all."
