  • Its completely fine :) I have an IUD (Mirena) and I have NEVER once felt the strings. I went to my doctor and he said they are there and everything is in place, so if you can feel the strings, then youre good! :)

  • I have Mirena also, and have never been able to feel the strings. I ask my husband every now and then to check (which is more than happy to do LOL!) and its always where it should be. The strings are designed to curl up and back around the neck of your cervix. If you are really concerned, you can always have your doctor check to make sure the placement is intact though.
