  • The string could be wrapped around your cervix (mine did that too). Having on and off cramping is NORMAL. I ALWAYS cramped after I had the IUD put in. As for the no-period...if you have Mirena, that's probably why. I had Mirena one, put in while I was on my period, and it completely STOPPED my period (I was on day 2). Never had a period again after that, and shortly thereafter had it removed because of that (I'm weird, I hate AF, but it's a comfort to have it)
