  • I'm not trying to be mean, but why is everybody tryin to feel it?? I don't get it. I've had mine for almost 2 years && I have never once tried to feel it. You're supposed to go to the doctor once a year to make sure it's still in place, other than that don't worry about it....

  • well if you just want to...the strings are supposed to end just inside your cervix. so you have to stick your finger all the way up until you feel your cervix at least. Then I guess you would just kinda dig around from there??

  • I tried to feel mine like the first day i got it and couldn't. I haven't tried since. I have had it 2 years and just went for my yearly and it's right where it should be. She did pull the strings down a little because they had went a little into my cervix but no biggie. Don't worry about it.
