OMG MY CROTCH!

I have an appointment at 1:45 to have an IUD put in. Only thing is that they didn't tell me which IUD it is. The problem with that is that I heard with the Mirena there is a string that hangs out. Is that true? For the people that have it - does it interfere with your sex life? What other kinds of IUD's are there? Do they all have a "string?"

It does hang out of ur cervix not ur vagina. And it's only like and inch or so. Just enough so it can be taken out when necessary. Usually ur partner doesn't even notice and if they do U can tell the dr and they may be able to clip them shorter. Of bend then so they aren't bothering him

these are questions you should have asked your doctor before deciding on an IUD.

YOU make the iud choice, not the doctor.
The paragard has strings as well.

Not really, considering an IUD is my only option.

How do you NOT know which IUD you're getting?

Yes, really, even if it's your only choice.

I originally was going to do it at the hospital but I decided not to do it there for personal reasons. The hospital had given me a pamphlet on both Mirena and Paraguard and I decided on the Paraguard, but then decided to go to my physician to have it inserted instead. 2 days later they called and said they had my IUD and to call them when I had my first period so they could get me in to have it inserted. She never said what it is. I'm assuming they just got whichever one my insurance covers.

If you picked paraguard then I'd think that's what you're getting.
