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?

  • The string is not suppose to hang out of the vagina....you should be able to check placement by inserting a finger into the vagina and feel it up by the cervix. Do this after each period. I have had an IUC in the past.

  • Your doctore probably did not cut the string short enough. Go back in and have him adjust it. you shouldn't be able to feel it outside your vagina like a tampon string.
