  • I can't feel mine, i've had it for 4 years.

    Remember, the average vaginal canal is about 6 inches long so you probably just can't reach them.

  • Mine got tangled, so they had to cut them super short, and they ended up going up inside my cervix. When the doctor doing my pap couldn't find them, they actually did an ultrasound to verify it was still placed correctly. You can always ask for that if you're really worried. When I had it removed it took longer since they had to use a camera to go in and find them, but my doctor said it wasn't that uncommon for the strings to retract into the cervix.
