Question about Mirena...

I recently got the Mirena on Wednesday. Is the string suppose to come out of your vagina and hang out of your vagina ? Or is it inside your vagina and you can just feel it when you put your fingers in? How do you check to see if the IUD is still there?

  • You should be able to feel two plastic strings in your vagina. The easiest way to find them is to find the cervical opening, they should be coming out of there. They should not hang out of your body like a tampon string. You actually have to stick your fingers in there.

  • yeah its supposed to be inside... if the string are too long, (uncomfortable for you or your partner) then your doctor can trim them.
