Hi i had unprotected sex last night and got my coil removed today am i still protected as i do not know when my period is due?

Maybe/maybe not: The presence of the intrauterine coil during the sex episode yesterday will produce enough endometrial reaction to minimize implantation at that time.

My boyfriend and I had PROTECTED sex June 1-2, he checked for holes and there weren't any. I'm still worried though. My period is due in 5 days. ?

Wait for when: the period is due. If late 2-3 days, check pregnancy test. If negative and you are not bleeding normally the next week, check it again.
