  • For nearly a year and a half I couldn't feel my string and after having to pay a big dr bill just to have them tell it was there shortly after I had it in, I refused to go back. After about a year and a half I became pregnant and the dr couldn't find the thing at all!

  • Its not that far up. Not that it hangs out but you can still feel it tho. I've had mine in for 7 wks and so far i'm not too thrilled w/ it. I've had bad cramps on and off, and spotting all the time. Its definitely preventing me from getting pregnant again, I can tell you that much! I'm debating if I should get it removed or not.

  • I took it out today i better lose this stupid 15 pounds i gained. My hubby could feel it but he's a huge african guy. If you can't feel it go get it checked. I couldnt feel it when i felt for it but he could each time we had sex.

  • I have the mirena and love it. Have only had one period. I can only feel the string up far (next to my cervix).
