  • If you can feel the strings there's no problem. It's possible that the last time you had sex he moved them when they poked him. Mine poked my hubby too and I had to have my doc move them, they were already as short as they would be so he couldn't cut them.

  • No, don't be worried. The strings may poke for a few weeks before mucas builds up on them. Then they don't poke anymore, but they are still there.
