I've had it for about a year, I recently stopped nursing and have missed my first period. The doc trimmed them short recently because they tickled me. When I went in to get the IUD checked she looked and couldn't find it either. I believe its still there cause I can feel something hard in my cervix. I go in Fri for an ultra sound to look for it. Oh I took a pregnancy test and it was neg, I should have started around the 4th.


Has anyone else had an issue witht the Mirena?

So I went in today for the u/s and the IUD is where it should be. Which is good but it still makes me nerve not being able to feel the strings.

I had other major issues with the Mirena, but I never lost my strings.
