I've had the Mirena IUD for 9 months now....
In the first 8 months (and for 4 years before) I had the same sexual partner and he always complained that he could feel my strings when we had sex...said it felt like little needles poking him, not painful but noticeable.
I have never been able to find my strings myself so I don't even try to check each month...plus I haven't had a period in months. I've been to the doc and had my strings checked though and they were in place...that was maybe 3 months after I had the IUD inserted.
Well, 2 weeks ago I had sex with someone different and he said he could not feel the strings when we had intercourse....which was odd because 2 weeks earlier my former partner COULD feel them. To top it all off...the condom got stuck up inside me with new partner and I had to fish it out...
Does the fact that new partner didn't feel the strings necessarily mean the IUD is out of place?
