  • It took about two weeks for it to stop bleeding, but I did not stop spotting until almost two months! I suggest you throw down a towel!!

  • Ive had mine in for 2 1/2 years and have had no problems at all with no pain, light bleeding, and havent been pregnant nor any scares. However just about a week ago I wiped and there was the black string it had come out, so I made an appointment to get it checked out I will update after that. Im scared that it got lost or something but im a little worried any body hear any stories about this happening??
