well one, tomorrow you should go and get the morning after pill just incase, and hopefully when you call your dr. in the morning you will get an App. as soon as possible! that sounds painfull though, it might be coming out or is already out.

I had to go back a few weeks after having Mirena put in because I was bleeding heavily, and it felt like the strings were outside of me. My midwife cut the strings and tucked them around my cervix. After they insert the iud, things will move around and adjust and sometimes they just have to cut the strings a bit, no big deal. They won't cut them too short though. I can still feel mine, but they aren't hanging outside of me anymore either!

I should also say that unless you feel something other than the strings coming out of your cervix, you shouldn't be scared that the iud is out of place. I though mine was out of place but I was told it was just because the strings weren't cut short enough.

It could be that things are settling. As long as you didn't feel anything else, you should be fine. The doc can cut them to make sure hubby doesn't get poked anymore.
