OUCH Mirena IUD!!!

Okay, so I got the stupid Mirena IUD and so far so good except every now and then the strings would pinch, especially when I would try to sit down. I end up looking really funny sitting sideways or leaning back so the "strings" (frickin' nylon w ires!!!) won't hurt me. I went back today and had the strings trimmed and they're pinching even worse than before!!!!! What is up with that? Anyone else have/had this problem? Will it go away??

  • no i didnt have that problem. i never even felt mine. maybe your strings need to be cut shorter than what they are now. i had a friend whohad to have hers cut EXTREMLY short because her husband could feel them and it hurt him. so maybe you just needto go back in. but theyshouldnt be hurting you.

  • i didnt feel them at all actually. the only time i even knew what they felt like was when she told me to do a "personal" inspection after four weeks to see if i could feel them.
